Using scrape plates means you will hit the ground more often and/or harder.

Furthermore, the chance of hooking over kerbs when parking means you can tear the bumper backwards while reversing.

Use 1.2mm stainless steel plates, or dont bother. The 3, 4, 5mm plastic plates are good only for the sellers.

I've seen cars crack radiators from hitting the ground DUE to having skid plates fitted.

I've personally found 360's and 430's fairly hard to scrape compared to other brands of exotics.

Depends what you are used to though
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

Titanium would be better. It creates a shitload of sparks for more drama.......... and bushfires.

Lol not 1 but 2.     I guess some people actually do need the electrinic tyre gauges to tell them when their tyres are flat .........
