Re: Stupid plastic undertray

i have one of these plastic undertrays on my gtv.

now this used to scrape quite a lot on speed bumps and
it got really annoying.

However unfortunately I had an accident one day which
involved running into an inclinde pavement/barried in the
middle of the road. There was a lot of damage to the tray
however it actually stop any damage to the oil sump.

also my friend hit a hidden speed bump at a fair speed
in his 156 which had the tray removed and he ripped
the sump plug right out of the sump and then had to
shell out for a full new sump.

so of the worst happens this bit of plastic could save
you having to replace the sump.

definatel worth thinking about.

Probably the aircon drain.

Re: Stupid plastic undertray

I've also lost the factory fitted platic undertray due to speedbumps/holes in the road...and decided to buy this:
I have to say that I was worried to death about driving without it.I know older cars don't even have it,but I allways thought that it was there for a reason.Imagine if a small stone would get stuck with the timing belt...
