Fantastic Product April 2, 2016
Reviewer: David R. from Isle of Wight, VA  
I could not be any more pleased with this product.  The fit and finish is top notch and the installation instructions were absolutely perfect. It has already absorbed several impacts that definitely would have damaged my Beetle's undercarriage.  Perfect!

Silver Lining March 30, 2016
Reviewer: Joshua from Milwaukee, WI  
Seeing that silver through the wheel well is like running your fingers through Meryl Streep's hair (if it were grey)...SEXY! My car isn't slammed so I can say much about clearance and I haven't bottomed out at all, but the plate looks great and doesn't hang low or anything. I didn't install this one myself; I had a friend who's a VW mechanic do it for me, but he said it went in smoothly and quickly with the tool that's supplied.

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.
