Unfortunately I don't have the stock piece at all. It was destroyed beyond repair.

I have one of the original pieces and its worked very well...I recommend making this change.

In addition to the options presented already, here is the link to Turner Motorsports option:

I know you don't want to spend the money, but if you bought from FCP Euro you can replace for free (minus shipping) if it does get destroyed again.

I can attest to the quality and design of the mporium piece. I bought from one of their first production batch. No issues to date, which included a few long road trips and several track days.

Since installing the used Slambo unit a couple of years ago, I have not scraped anything. Deansbimmer/Mporium now sell the one Slambo designed. Id recommend it over the Turner for the reasons Deansbimmer provided.
If there was a probability lower than 0% that would be the chance you'd have of bending the turner one. Anything short of a catastrophic crash would not bend that plate. It's literally indestructible and it's the ONLY one that keeps the airflow design the same. Don't forget our car was designed in a wind tunnel

So if you scrape the stock one that was designed by bmw to bend and flex, you wont scrape the Turner one that is not designed to bend or flex? And if you do hit something that is not designed to give, like the Turner plate, there is a 0% chance any damage to the plate or car would result?

I would never run the Turner unit, in an extreme bottoming out scenario, i would be worried about upward stress on frame rails. The undertray is meant to hang by metal cables, which can move upwards with no stress to the underbody.
