Droning noise - exhaust heat shield?

The last job to do on the Brera is fix a droning noise that increases with speed. At first i though it was a bearing, but yesterday i went out to wobble the wheels and (for some reason) had a look underneath the car and noticed this (see pic)

As it's torn, I couldn't see an easy way to fix it so just glued the flapping bit back up and it seems to have cured a lot of the noise.

The one further to the front is flush with the bottom of the car so i'm guessing this one is supposed to be the same. There is still a resonating noise, i'm guessing as there are still gaps in between the sections where it is bolted to the bottom.

Does anyone have a part number for it by any chance? I've tried searching on the usual parts websites but can't find anything (i've just been searching for "exhaust heat shield")
