Seems like someone (mechanic?) didn't tighten the panel enough when working on your car.

If the under panel just came loose, that's an easy fix you can probably do yourself. All you'd need to do is buy the screws that are missing and then screw the panel back into pace.

Same with the weather strip there that is on the edge of the end of the bumper lip. That snaps back into place.

I did this myself when I took that panel off.

If your not DIY'd inclined, then take it took a local shop.

Looks like a daily driver to me. Bug splatter, dust, and dirt from highway driving. Not everyone can have pristine garage queens that get a daily wipe down with unicorn fur towels and tiger DNA polish

Absolutely right above being a daily driver. Recent cold weather in northern CA hasn't afforded me the time to coddle it like it deserves, so back off about the looks...LOL

as to refastening the current item, the piece of plastic that was under my right tire, I think was a piece from the right side that broke loose and thus caused it to drop.

still wondering why it happened though. Not go to hear that it has happenede to Ahmed multiple times though.

There is a hatch on the right (item 22) to access the oil filter. If that hatch blows open (or off) the remaining panel (item 18) will catch the air and tend to fall off.
The large panel has 4 large nuts in addition to many screws, without the nuts the panel and the one under the transmission would have both blown off.

My M6 does not have the smaller hatch, so I have removed the large panel many times to access the oil filter.
