Buy nice or buy twice. Get the HIK fab. 110%.
I've cracked a pan through the red46 plate, and literally caught air and bounced on the HIK fab plate with absolutely no issues.

Seriously best skid plate on the market and pays for itself when you save your oil pan.

This is the only skid plate on the market that can take an 80 mph hit to the freeway. Ask me how I know. And the Honda Civic behind me that got showered in sparks lol

Best money i spent on e30.
Damn things insane the abuse its put up with so far.
I also have a Hiks Fabrication Skid Plate. It has saved me so many times. Best skid plate imo.
Big thanks to John for making such a beefy skidplate. I hit some train tracks in downtown slc going about 40 today and the airbag deployed because of how hard I hit them but my pan was safe. Put a big ass dent right Behind the support bar but it was really a hell of a hit. Glad I had this plate on and not another red 46 because my pan would definitely be a goner.
Ran round 2 at my local track Saturday and thought I'd drop a first hand review. I don't get to run counter clockwise often, and I had forgotten how to negotiate this rather large dip in the back section. Not only did it surely save my oil pan, but also saved me a good hour in the hot sun cleaning up the mess I would have left, while a pit full of other drivers were losing track time. The plate took the hit like nothing and gave me the confidence to shatter my personal best times. If I ever burn through this one over the years, do you sell a replacement plate by itself? Thanks again for a quality product.
No issues at all. Thanks for the quality product.
I've bounced my car off the ground and hit train tracks that deployed airbags without breaking a pan.
I have literally caught air off of this. Plus I'm m42 on tucked 15s, so the lower sump sits on the ground.
