I had my car on a lift today and it was the first time I actually got to see under my car and I was wondering why they cover/shield most of the underside, and in some cases even have aero bits, but not the area I circled in blue?

Does anyone know?

Wonder what Consumer Reports would say about the BMW?

Are you missing the engine belly pan?

For most modern cars the catalytic converter has been moved up closer to the engine as it works better there and is less likely to start a fire.
Even so, it is necessary to have some place for the air that came into the engine bay for cooling to escape and it is also important that the exhaust pipe not "cook" nearby bits like the aero cover, wiring harness, and your feet.

No idea. They were in the middle of working on the car so maybe they had removed it, but in the auto fanatic video of him doing the x pipe, I think he didn't have one either

Here is my underside for comparison
Thanks! I see the part in yours that people think I'm missing, but I found mine; it was on the floor of the shop bc they were working on the cats 🤦🏻‍♂️
