I'm trying to work out in the picture of your post.Thanks, for the reply. It looks like there is a mod to be had there when I eventually get it all back together!!!!!
I never gave it much thought about the possibility of it rusting underneath. cause for concern to any future owner?Yes I have 4 of them !!!!!!!
Joking apart, there seems to be a big gap on both sides outside the exhaust where all sorts of rubbish - stones, dirt, grass, mud........ is just thrown up off the tyres and into the bumper where it just has dried out and stuck.
The bumper cover is made of plastic (Polypropylene I discovered the other day!) but the actual bumper bar is rusting away 3 years 16000 miles and it looks like this.........

as its obviously throwing salt up and is is settling inside the bumper bar itself and rotting the bottom edge.
On a more positive note I have been able to clean the exhaust!

It says they are a once only fit.
Yep 100% they come off. Took mine off for a clean the first year I had it. Just tap from the back with a rubber or leather hide mallet... simples...Sorry but I disagree as I removed mine for a good hand polish, oh err. Popped off easily with help from my mate nylon hammer with no damage caused.
Polished up lovely
Refitted easily with next to no effort, firm push then tap with the hammer. They haven't feel off yet!
I agree if you know how they come off then yes I reckon 'scumbags' could steal them.Hey don't shoot the messenger !!!! it struck me as odd at the time and I'm afraid it's just stuck with me. I thought they may have done something so that if some thieving little rat bag stole them they would be no good to them but as usual I was probably reading the instructions after fitting so couldn't look inside.....
@Harvey what polish do you use as you have a lovely shine on your tip?????
