Re: Engine plate
its to protect your delicate hands from the dangerously hot engine, and also to protect the front of the engine and exhaust pipes(i think) from stones etc, but providing your undertray is still there i cant see the point.
just replaced mine last week and the car sounds so much better, cant imagine how they crack though!
think it cost £13 and a bit(156)? i could be wrong, but fit it yourself, i dimly asked my indy to do it and realised i could have saved £££ from the labour charge and do it in 5mins myself!
