E30 Skid Plate
We have installed these plates on several race and street vehicles over the past few years. We have taken off 2 "other guy" skid plates and replaced them with the Red46 plate due to damage. We have never seen a damaged engine with a Red46 skid plate! It works! Also very strait forward to install.
Must have for racing
Tough as nails. Saved countless oil pans.
A MUST for slammed rides.
Save yourself the trouble of going through pans every week and just get it!!!
Install is incredibly simple, just make sure your radiator is nowhere near were you are drilling (speaking from experience) took me about 30 minutes to install on my driveway in no rush. Would reccomend to anyone with a lowered anything!
For all E30s with an M42, this is a must.
Extremely functional and designed with practicality in mind, Red 46 skid plates are possibly the best-value accessory you can find for your old-school Bimmer. This is especially true for those of us who have a late-model E30 318i/318is. I assume the same could be said about any Bimmer with an M4x engine, but the only application I can vouch for from experience is use with an E30. Bottom line? If your suspension isn’t in pristine condition, and you don’t intend on replacing/upgrading it ASAP, then you NEED a Red 46 skid plate. It took me an unfortunate encounter with a steel-plate-atop-asphalt that you encounter in & around construction sites to realize this. Don’t wait until you bust your oil pan. It’s a crappy situation, and fixing it isn’t cheap. By comparison, the (impeccably-designed and well-built) sump armor you can get from Red 46 is an absolute steal. If you’re perusing this site and thinking, “Hmm… is it *really* worth the money?” wonder no more. The answer is yes. I cannot give a more earnest recommendation.
Piece of mind
This product is the best protection and very easy to install. Since my swap I kept looking at how low my oil pan sits, now since install Ii can drive with confidence that my engine is protected. I have scraped several times and product stands up to its name, it is truly sump armor. Thanks Peter oh yeah forgot to say that it shipped super fast
I love how fast it was shipped. The quality of the product was amazing. The customer service was outstanding
Took a little bit of effort to get the radiator guard to line up with the front of the plate but after some hammering it set nicely. Saved my oil pan from several hard hits during a long weekend of rallycross in western Maryland. I wouldn't go back without one.
