Mine has saved me a few times like! the OEM one does sit a bit on the low side (I think that group buy one is the same design as oem), but the oem steel one is strong as hell - mine's taken a beating this winter, and not one dent... some people have apparently taken the tops of speed bumps off with it too hahahaaha! win.

is that the oem steel one hten, do they do one for a bora or will it fit with a few mods?
The OEM sump guard is common to both the Bora and the Golf, it fits both. And as said it's bombproof, but sits a little lower than standard height.

Edit: Search for 1J0 018 930C and you'll find much discussion about it on this site.

400 quid??!!! JAYSUS!

Thought they were 'only' 200ish?
You might wanna try a Seat or a Skoda dealers and see what they charge. Same part number. Or a different VW dealer who isn't just making up prices. Or maybe they gave you a fully fitted price?

What we need is a proven part, at a sensible price, on a mammoth group buy.

Messing about getting something shipped from the US or paying who knows how much for a VW one just doesn't come into the equation for me, and I'm sure most others.

Surely someone out there can get this together?[:cool:]
