yes Alex, and that's probably why yours "fell" off...

I am so disgusted, I used to be a SGti owner and found that parts were
being stollen from most SGti cars. It's such a cheap car to maintain, yet
people either can't afford to maintain it or don't want to spend the
money to do so, and rather get parts off other SGTi's

The other big thing was the Aerofoil. I had a friend who lost the whole
thing and had to replace it with a Batmain spoiler.

Mr Raider,

Is that cover the same size as the Neo's one ah? and could it be bought at
any other place? I'm gonna kill the b*****d who took mine.

Thanks.

I think different.. Very difficult/troublesome/time consuming if you want
to buy at other place.. Just google for the proton part dealer
address/phone and call them first to enquire.. quote the part number..

I gave up replacing it. So when my front skirting was damaged due to those
bloody kerbs, I decided to get an imitation front skirting from BROTHERS
for RM25 only.

Nowadays, the tow truck don't need to access to the tow hook. There are
more than one way to tow your car.
