Is This Safe?

I have a 02 BMW X5 with 210,000 miles on it and I was wondering if it is safe to take the heat Shield off?

I have a 2002 BMW X5 and I was wondering if I could take the cheap exhaust heat shield off? I also have a 1999 BMW 528i 235,000 miles on it and they both have these cheap exhaust shields that make a vibration noise.

it will make the top of the engine get a bit hotter, but it's already pretty freaking hot inside there ayway. And with that age and mileage, odds are it's not going to last too much longer anyway, knowing bmws and all their plastic crap breaking

i have replaced most stuff that would break like collant system
