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!

GREAT product January 14, 2015
Reviewer: Ken from Charlotte, NC  
I bought the Panzer Plate with metal skirts. I replaced the ENTIRE plastic plate once before finding Panzer Plate (and repaired the plastic ones innumerable times) but NO MORE. Now I just take note of the gouges in my skid plate & realize that each one is money SAVED.

Thanks for a thoughtfully designed & well-made product.

FMJ Panzer skid plate December 7, 2014
Reviewer: Steven G. from Murphy, NC United States  
The short version of a long story is my water pump seized and stripped my timing belt of 99% of the teeth on the belt.  There was just enough of teeth on the belt to keep the timing. I knew my timing belt was past due, and I was operating on borrowed time, but I could not get my car to my AWESOME mechanic, Troy Sentz, down in Canton, GA.  I wanted to me sure my TDI would be protected from the dangers of a cracked oil pan.  Troy told me how a DieselGeek FMJ skid plate protected the TDI his wife was driving when she could not avoid a tractor trailer tire on the interstate.  It took the brunt of the hit, and she finished the 1 1/2 hour drive home. I love my TDI, and I cannot recommend this peace of mind product more.  Jim at Diesel Geek has been quick to respond to any questions I have, and he has great videos on YouTube.  If you are in the southeast and need a TDI mechanic, use Troy in Canton.  If you need great parts for your TDI, use DieselGeek.com!
