    The things in question are the black pieces of plastic located back and underneath our bumpers. I'm assumng that their there for better aerodynamics and wind noise at high speeds, but do they actually make a difference. I ask because i ripped my centersection off going over aspeed bump and i was considering just aking the two side pieces down.

    He's probably talking about the front airdam. It consists of 3 pieces, and costs about 80 dollars combined from the dealer. It's not too important on the street, since I've driven around w/o one completely for almost a year, but if you are going to do a track day or anything of that sort, you will overheat w/o it.
