Dear Coen de Korte,Thanks for your interest in Moss Motors. I'm having trouble finding thepart# of the item you are looking at. Do you see a Moss Motors oart numberassociated with the skidplate? With that number I can get you a price and ashipping quote assuming it is something I have in stock that doesn't requirefreight shipping. Thanks Again,

Anybody have any opinions/experience with this one: http://new.minimania.com/web/Item/G2.../InvDetail.cfm I am starting to collect some pretty serious scrapes on my oil pan so I think its time for some protection. Not to mention my flex pipe and DP vband which are both totally fubar.

Both Rally & I have them on our Clubman(s). They work great, but don't cover the full oil pan as you can see.

Hmm, well the price is right enough. If nothing else I can use it as a template to fab my own and resell it later. Might be my Holiday gift to myself.

The skidplate protects the leading edge of the oil pan which is where MINI's need it, but...

Skidplates don't really protect oil pans.

90% of oil pan issues on low cars are from BIG hits. Rocks in the road, sudden large dips where the pan smashes the ground, or hitting manhole covers. Hits that dent, shatter, or otherwise crack the pan.

Every once in a while people form small leaks simply by scraping through the pan over a long time of scraping. But this is usually noticed by small puddles in the driveway or a slow loss of oil. This isn't the catastrophic failure like some of the oil pan horror stories you read and want to protect yourself against.

With the previously mentioned heavy hits that often cause the pan issues, the pan still usually gets damaged through the skid plate when a plate is installed. The skid plate does well to protect it from scraping, but it's not going to help you in the scenarios when you really need it.

All of that aside, I would run that skid plate even if it didn't cover a single inch of the oil pan. I bout it to protect the stupid cloth radiator piping. If that snags on anything while driving (common problem, even on stock cars), your engine is in for some hurt. That's the sole reason I run that plate and it's does its job very well. It keeps that hose tucked up above the bumper line and protects it from debris.

I follow you.

Does it do anything for DP/Flexpipe protection? Obviously its the one place uncovered by the plate. Its only a short matter of time before I develop an exhaust leak at the rate I'm scraping those.

I've got a justacooper, so I don't know. Mine doesn't seem to scrape there. I scrape my exhaust back by the subframe

Oddly I hit some sort of beer case which obviously got stuck on the exhaust. It like melded with the exhaust or something because the ink from the casing has been on my exhaust for about a year. You could see the logo and everything.
