What on earth is that for? :dunno:
I'm guessing it is to confuse owners where leaks might be.
OR to annoy you when you need to work on something.
If it was made out of 5mm aluminum or steel then okay but wow.

Thanks for sharing.

Sorry Adrian I forgot to use the sarcasm font.
From what I've heard/read it is not needed and was intended as a finishing piece. Also, if you had it installed, how would you know if it is leaking.

I didn't think I need one but

I used to have 97 Audi A8 and it had the protection on it. Was helpful driving in snow and wet area since the car was low. But with RR, maybe it is wise move to get the skid plate instead of this plastic piece but was curious. Did you know this is $210 piece at Rovers North and AB? Good God! :eek:

My 1992 Classic has one on it, an is somewhat of a pain when changing oil. We have had them on all of our Volvos and now the Mercedes, they are for keeping road water from splashing up onto the electrical system; this is somewhat rediculous on a Range Rover with its wading capabilities. My 95 4.0 does not have one, and one was not offered.
