Wow DrnknZag, your right! I went out and looked its a little piece right in the front wheel well, and the one on the other side is super loose too. Do you think they have any purpose?

From what I remember, I think it has something to do with air flow under the car and through the wheel wells. I could be wrong though. Anyone else know?

one of mine just came off too, funny. I think there little water/mud flaps to divert the water that sprays off your tires.

WRB squared!

Default Plastic

part of the plastic ducting for the front brake cooling. wont really effect much I don't think they are that efficient. buy some new plastic clips from the dealer and replace it when the weather gets nice again!!
