Default Undertray yes or no?

As I am struggling at the minute to get an aftermarket undertray to fit, and stay attached to my car my burning question of the moment is to have an undetray or not?

Malcolm.

Use cable ties makes life easier as clips tend to fail, plus it makes garages use ties also so you don't get five miles down the road and you hear the scraping of tray and road.

Yes and no really.

It *could* affect handling with it not being there, and possibly airflow through radiator / intercooler, and also noise.

It's there for a reason, but personally haven't noticed any ill effects with it off.

I will not be buying any more replacement clips/pins. Cable ties are definitely the way to go. 3 cable ties so far and counting.

Ive answered yes simply because it stops the engine getting covered in shit and protects the underneath from the elements too

Yes it helps air flow under the car and stops dust/debris going into engine bay

Clips are fine if you replace both parts, mines still on

yes
looked at the copy ones and woundered how well they fit.
The rear side sections on mine broke off and I have trimmed it back to the crossmember, easy to refit from the front with just the 3 front clips and 2 on each side.

My undertray is hanging off one side, the other sides been secured with a cable tie

It scrapes occasionally.

Seen them for 45 ish on eBay, or is OEM the way to go?

Depends on how deep your pockets are!

I think a few have bought ebay ones.

Not deep, only had the car a day and few things to address already. Looks like its the norm though
