2 Year Review September 1, 2015
Reviewer: Garret from Fenton, MI United States  
I purchased the Panzer Skid Plate with the 'Full Metal Jacket' combo in late 2013. Installation was far easier than I expected. The detailed instructions are very clear.  I was a bit concerned that I would run into some issues installing the rivnuts, but again the directions made it clear. For further clarification be sure to check-out the Deiselgeek "MK4 Panzer Plate Rivnut Install" video on YouTube.

The plate has survived two Michigan winters and two Florida summers. It has protected my oil pan on several occasions!

When changing the oil, the pan can easily be removed and reinstalled by one person. I recommend cleaning the mounting points and reapplying a thin layer of grease to ensure the plates longevity.

My only suggestion is to weld or glue the washer that's necessary for mounting to the plate itself (you'll understand what I'm referring to when installing it). The washer has a chance of getting lost when you remove the plate.

Brilliant! August 26, 2015
Reviewer: Jim from Spring, TX  
Installed the full kit on a 2004 Jetta tdi in about an hour and a half, going slow.  

Construction is solid, fit is superb, and the installation instructions are spot on.  If you can turn a wrench, you can install this!

Overall an excellent package for protecting your under engine, and I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Absolute MUST HAVE for your Jetta April 5, 2015
Reviewer: Tim Zerfas from Ellicotville, NY  
I have owned 3 MK4 TDI Jetta's and Have put a Panzer Skid plate on every one. It only took me my first purchase for my first Jetta to realize the importance of One of these for the Protection of your car. And one hell of a piece of mind.

Winters here in WNY are Brutal on our vehicles. Especially where I live. I Run over road Debris and huge ice bergs that have fallen off the snowplows. I never have to leave the lane or perform any evasive and risky maneuvers in Bad Weather..

I Watched the my original TDI get dragged down a treacherous Ditch, Directly on the skid plate for probably 50 yards or more. It was basically laid to rest after that because of all the damage it suffered to the body. But we were able to drive it home, and Later sell the Engine in perfect and well protected condition. But only because of that 1/4" Aluminum Skid Plate and accompanying side skirts..

Anyone who doesn't make this their first Upgrade on their VW is a Fool..

The Panzer skid plate and FMJ side skirts are great products. Install was very straightforward with the instructions. Excellent fit and finish. I would highly recommend this for anyone with a VW.

Great design and construction! January 31, 2015
Reviewer: Bill from White Salmon, WA  
I often drive on rutted, unpaved roads and in snow with blocks of ice.  I'd put Dieselgeek skid plates on my Mk IV and Mk VI TDI Jetta SWs.  Both were well designed, carefully constructed, easy to install and fit and looked great. The removable insert made draining the oil on the MK IV TDI simple.  The MK VI plate slides right off and on during oil changes. When I bought a Mk IV gas Jetta SW I decided to also add side skirts for greater protection.  Again, easy install and great fit.  Install was much improved by the addition of a torque spec for rivnut insertion.  Great product!
