Deluxe MK4 Panzer Plate and FMJ Side Skirt Combo

$349.00

If you're ready to go all the way with your MK4, this Deluxe Combo is the choice for you. It features both our MK4 Panzer Plate and the Full Metal Jacket Side Skirts at a discounted price! And, by ordering the full package, you save an additional $20.00 with our Supersaver shipping (Our actual shipping cost is $20.00 higher than what you will pay.) This combo works with all MK4 cars worldwide with the exception that 2006-2010 New Beetles with the 2.5 gas five cylinder engine cannot use the passenger side Full Metal Jacket side panel due to engine length. If you have a 2006-2010 New Beetle you can order the MK4 Panzer and the driver side Full Metal Jacket side panel alone. 

What about oil changes?  

TDI: Panzer Skid plates are punched with an easily removed "keystone" shaped oil drain plug access window. If removed, this hole will allow you or an oil change technician to easily drain the engine oil from the oil pan without removing the plate. We offer a snap-in aluminum cover for the removed oil drain window for a small additional cost. Alternatively, if you buy a "Pela 6000" or "Hydro-Turf oil extractor" for around $55 you can change your oil without getting under the car. The extractors may be purchased online to allow you to suck all of the used oil out of the dipstick tube. They really work.

Gasoline engines: Since the oil filters on these engines are mounted low on the engine and face the ground it is necessary to remove the skid plate to change the oil filter. This means there is no good reason to order the plate with the oil drain knockout removed if you have a gas powered car. Removal of the plate is only a five minute affair and the plate itself only weighs about 17 pounds. You may order the plate with the knockout removed but the knockout was designed for a 4 Cylinder TDI and is in the wrong place for a 5 or 6 cylinder.
