I second the David Wilson one. Dunno about the Airbag compliance though, didn't know it was a thing with sump guards.
He's on the book of faces, Road Less Travelled (Yes there's an extra L) Road Less travelled - Underbody protection

Never seen an adr for under body protection. when I was still working insurance we used to get to just get fab shops to bend up replacements since arb wouldn't do wholesale for our repair shops.

If your really worried call your local state road authority, don't trust people on the internet. The subaruX gaurds (atleast the cast ones) are weaker than the poopy m6 bolts that hold them on, I've seen high crowned roads bend/crack them into a sumps. Then again 6mm of ally plate is also overkill imo, but like i said why trust someone on the internet...

It must be pretty hardcore situation that you might need plate for auto but sure better be safe then sorry. Im not convinced for that yet.
