If Alfa ingeneer have placed it on the car, it's for a good reason......and if you think a few minutes about this, you will understand those reasons.
Nobody will have the idea to drive without bonnet since it's easier so to control oil level.....so, why are you driving without the rubber ? It's the same idea !
Jomor and Johnny are right! That strip is there to built up a low pressure area just behind (please correct me if there are aero-nautic engineers on this forum
) it for air-flow control and stuff. However I also remember some of us saying that removing it in cold countries like the Netherlands isn't that bad as for instance when you're in warmer countries like Greece. And yes, I fully agree: with the lip it looks damn aggresive
And by the way Amsterdavid: you should be ashamed of yourself wink Driving 4 km's through Amsterdam BY CAR and not taking the BIKE! eek!
Where do you work actually? And is your car a lease car or a private owned one?
By the way, I just edited this post, because I saw that our airodynamics engineer Jomor had already explained the complete story in full detail!
And by the way Johnny, next time I'll ask my dealer to remove that foocking bonnet as it's in my way EVERYTIME I check the oil
