Hi,

because my Ti is driving me mad with speed bumps, I've decided to make my own engine guard out of 2.5 mm alloy sheet. Anyone interested in one? I can make more if required and we can share the costs...

I've got a 2.4 Ti Q4 Sportwagon and am suffering with the speed bumps too! I'm not sure that an ally one will be any better than the one that's catching already! I suspect running without it might be the best option!

i have the same car and currently running without guard. It's even worse:/ so i want this alu thing to work as a slider surface? i'll be making new in 2-3 weeks time, as i'm frequently in Lancashire you can have a look and go if you want. :) i've got brand new poem plastic guard as a template.

Might be worth getting together sometime in the next 1 - 2 weeks to see what's involved? We can try the cars over the bumps round here too! You might get me interested yet, I believe Q4 under trays are not the same as FWD cars or the petrol one?

I'm a couple of minutes from the end of the M57/M58 junction. Very easy to find. PM me if you're in the area?

Yes the guards are different . I've just got brand new genuine one as template so it can be used as template. Basically what I get now without it is flat bottom downpipe:/ and a lot of scratches. I want to add some guard for prop shaft support as I'vemanaged to damage it too. 2 weeks looks like good perspective. Or if you want it sooner I'm in Leeds

if i can get hold of genuine form no problem. I've never owned GT so may be some problem but maybe somebody around Yorkshire have one to be a template?
Thanks :)

I think it's the same one as the 147 GTA, mine is a GT 3.2 and it differs to the 2.0 JTS and 1.9 JTDm variants I believe. I've struggled to get hold of even a basic one :(

Hey crimsonbadger,

I'm interested in an alu undertray, depending on price and the postal costs to Belgium off course.

If you have any price available I love to hear it.
