Question Mk3 Megane Coupe - Front Underside Flaps?!!

Can anybody tell me what the purpose/function is for the 2 plastic flaps at the front underside of Mk3 Meganes - see attached photo... They appear to be simply screwed on - can I remove these flaps as I think they ruin the look of my Megane?? ...or are they important?
Thanks in advance

It depends(I think).

1. why not leave em on on any type, you cant really see them and if you hear a scraping it may warn the missus/yourself that your on the kerb /etc :0

2. Renault arent gonna put em on for no reason at all even bits like that cost money.

3.Mines a diesel, the air intake is a bit above the n/s flap vertically,petrol its further forward and the flap wouldnt affect it.
Put your hand in front of the flap ,there are holes at various places.
At speed,some air must be directed upward,even into the wheelwell for brake cooling maybe?

Im leaving mine.
