T1, T2, T3 Metal Skidplates for mainland USA buyers

With permission from the guy who makes these in Australia, (dragline1570), I am starting a new Group Buy thread for mainland United States (Sorry, AK & HI) Touareg owners who want to buy a REAL METAL skid plate for their Touareg.

The actual price of the skid plates will be the same, but the aim is to cut down on the $300+ USD cost of shipping each individual one.

Curious as to what they look like? See this thread:

Skid Plates USA

Per the above thread, dragline1570 has the following skid plates available:

- T1 V10 pre dpf filter
- T1 V8

- T2 V10 with dpf filter
- T2 V6 TDI
- T2 V8

- T3 V6 TDI

So, if you have one of those vehicles and want a skid plate, post up here on this thread. Please DO NOT send ME a PM! Post all questions, etc, here, so that all can see and benefit.

Since there are a few people from the Denver, Colorado area who are interested, I am thinking we could have them all delivered to my place (I have room for storage.) and disperse them from Colorado. I could also personally deliver to Phoenix, as it is not too far of a drive and may be taking a trip there later this year, anyway. If we have a huge interest for a different area, we can look at delivery to a different location, too.

As far as payment goes, all of that will be handled through dragline1570. The idea is to group items together to reduce the shipping costs to the USA.

From Colorado, I am thinking direct pickup in Colorado (80525 zip code, but I can meet you in Denver, too) personal delivery through Touareg members here in the States, UPS or Greyhound shipping, depending on final shipment size.

I won't copy the names from the previous thread. If you are still interested, post up here and tell me WHICH SKID PLATE you are interested in and I'll add you to the list.

Let's bring some REAL skid plates to America! :- )

I'm in for one still.

2010 V6 TDI, Denver, CO

I just checked the exchange rate and it looks like it would cost approx $460 for the plate not including shipping.

Photos

For the V8 guys both T1 & T2 can I please have some photos of the underside of your car specifically how the exhausts run and what CATS etc you have. Want to be sure they are the same as each other. Mainly it is the FSI as we didn't get them here. There will not be any real differences if at all but I just want to understand. The area I need is the section between the rear of the engine cradle and the front of transmission carrier.


Please email them to me
mbrmb@tpg.com.au

For those that like cool sounds...


Most of the shots are from the rear, moving forward. But maybe some will help with your visuals...?
