No Underbody cover?

Hello:

Today I ntoiced that there is no under body cover on my car, a 2013 forester limited which I bought two weeks ago. I know many people change the factory plastic cover with after marked ones but not having anything?

Subaru did away with them a few years ago on the N/A Foresters. Blame it on the bean counters, I guess.

Thanks. Is there a best place to buy one? I have been looking at the different places. I saw a place who charges over $300 for the metal one. Does dealers carry the plastic factory ones?

For a little over $200 you can put on a real metal skid plate from Primitive-Racing, which will offer real protection that plastic can't.
