Osiris skid plate by Evolution Import, Inc. Most VW oil pans have only a few inches of ground clearance; these solid plates are a good idea at stock height and a necessity for lowered cars. Protect your fragile oil pan from hazards such as road debris, manhole covers, and speed bumps. Evolution tests their products in extreme conditions, including icy -40° Canadian winters.
