Anyone removed the skid plate? Will it be okay if I remove? I ruined it going over a man hole cover.

It's fine to run without it. You MPG might go down a little on the interstate

My skid plate done for a while now, don't know what happened to it. The gas mileage stay the same, noise still the same. But your hood area will be filled with sand. And maybe be careful with stones and gravels.

Wish Honda offer the plate for sell and not the whole damn undercover.

Obviously without it you’re more exposed to damage in the engine bay. On a new car like this I would suggest you replace it.

If it didn’t need it it wouldn’t of come with it because believe me they try to cut every corner

The undercover cost about 150$ but most company won't sell it because it's huge and heavy. You might have to ask your dealer.

For a nice and expensive car like your, I'll keep it original and buy a new skid plate.
