Awesome product September 4, 2014
Reviewer: Mary from San Francisco  
I love my plate & skirt set. Saves me from saving my oil pan I am guessing at least every year.

Easy in, great protection May 16, 2014
Reviewer: View from a Bus from Oregon  
Very hapy with the DieselGeek tools, and now I have the plate protecting my Jetta.  After years of driving uber-careful, it's a whole new experience to drive over holes, speed-bumps, etc confidently.  The parts fit perfectly, the install was easy and I was done in under 2 hours.  If you only have that thin plastic sheet or nothing at all, do your car and wallet a favor and get one.

solid setup February 23, 2014
Reviewer: Nick from Portland, Oregon  
I did a few things different with mine.  I added a couple layers of dynomat to the topside of the Panzer.  Then I applied rubberized 3m coating, then a layer of truck bed liner and then on the top side of the Panzer and the inside of the FMJ I painted HiTemp Nickel.  I wanted to be able to tell if I'm leaking fluids with the plate on.  The plates are much less prone to resonate when hit.

Also, I used Loctite red on the base of the rivnut and on the mushroom section of the nut as well.  This allows the nut additional strength to keep from slipping after being installed.  It is very easy to over tighten the rivnuts and that is the main issue with stripping them.  Be careful not to over tighten it doesn't take much.  I initially greased the threads on the Panzer since I used Red Loctite on the rivnuts.  On the next oil change I will clean off all the bolts.  I didn't want the Red to even have a chance of bonding to the threads.

Panzer full metal jacket November 27, 2013
Reviewer: Randy Firey from Sand Springs, Oklahoma  
I have purchased 2 of these panzer full metal jacket's for my 2002 and 2003 jetta TDI's. These fit excellent, offer incredible protection. I would not let my wife drive the 2003 until I received the skid plate and installed it. Her car  (2002)  has rashe's on the skid plate, so I know it work's. Thank's
