I don’t think the question is relevant to his situation. There comes a point that one’s time becomes more valuable than to spend it changing your oil; been there, done that. And doesn’t make you less of an enthusiast.
While I agree with the gist of your comment, I'm not quite sure why you made it. In the post you replied to, I see no mention of a DIY oil change. @GreenTeaPudding was suggesting (sensibly, imo) that the dealership should accept the blame for the loss of the skid plate. It's pretty clear that they didn't secure it correctly after the oil change was completed.

He's not questioning why the owner went to the dealership for an oil change, but why the owner didn't go back to have the dealer fix the problem.

I mean question was answered really. Go back to dealer/contact Honda; or get the cheap Type R or his OEM replacement.

Now this is my question. I have a friend who works there she said I would have to buy the extra plastic piece but I have a whole after market exhaust kit that doesn't fit with it. So I dunno if its worth it spending the money on it. I found a good skid plate on ebay but haven't bought yet. But its 300$ has more air holes for it to breath better etc..
As others have said, but perhaps not fully explained, get the Type R skid plate. It is the same but you can buy just the part you need without the entire plastic undercladding. It seems to be a quirk in the Honda parts inventory.

I’ve seen a lot of mentions on the type R skid plate, but I haven’t seen anyone post any pictures. Does anyone actually have this installed?

Otherwise, would this be a better upgrade?

Yeah, they’re notorious in these forums for completely falling apart (mine flew off on the highway lol). I was hoping someone could chime in who’s replaced it.

I'm going to be making a DIY skid plate with ease of access for DIY OIL change. Since I work in steel fab.

I can assure you the cost to make most of these skid plates is less than 50$ USD its all in the "design and engineering'

I will post back in a month or so with my version!
