90 80q...air deflector

It serves three purposes:

1) protects engine components from debris.
2) Adds to the aerodynamic 'slip' of the vehicle. (that is, you are more 
aerodynamic with it)
3) Helps to catch all the oil from that small oil leak, so your dad doesn't 
force you to park your car on the street! Just wash occasionally, and he'll 
never know...

Okay, so perhaps on your car it only serves two purposes...regardless, I would 
certainly replace it.  Used is fine, just ensure that all the mounting points 
are good, and it's not cracked.

going out of control or rolling over, but when a human being gets into 
it..."                     - Pierre Savoy, head instructor BMW Driver Training
