Recently I purchased the front skid plate garnish for my CRV, something I should have done years ago. I purchased the trim not for it's appearance but my suspicion that the trim could disrupt the airflow under the nose of the vehicle in a positive way.
I wanted the installed trim to be as obscure as possible so I scuffed the part, properly cleaned, then applied three coats of SEM Black Trim Paint and gave it several days to cure prior to install. The match is right on.
To my point about the airflow under the nose, the sloping under bumper design of the 2012-2014 CRV's causes lift at highway speeds which affects the vehicles stability. While not a 100% improvement, it is close enough that it makes a dramatic difference in the handling.
