This is an '05 Elise with these front chin 'protectors'. I do not see these on any cars in this forum. I am curious if everyone removes them, or was this an option? They are both destroyed so I have removed them. Does anyone know about replacements, or should I install a front splitter in their place?

They're not from the factory. They are dealer/owner add-ons to protect the clam. You can get them from a dealer or the Lotusgarage. I want to say they're around $150 (probably the most expensive bit I've ever bought from Lotus...). They are usually painted on the inside so when they get scratched they don't look bad.

you should get in touch with SirLotus on the forums. he makes a really nice product to specifically help protect this part of the front clam...

Install the front splitter. The car looks better with one and the front end feels much nicer at high speed (speaking from past experience).

Thanks guys. I am gonna go for the splitter. It will cost less than the replacement parts, and add so much more.
