Bought a sump guard for my vow amarok fit very nicely, on receiving the product the paint on the bracket edges was all chipped so just used some primer and black spray job sorted but would of been better with alot of more package round the edges to protect it from when it's dragged about on delivery.

Brought sump guards for two of my vehicles and a rear diff guard for one of them. The paint finish is very thin and came mostly chipped off on the edges, this was clearly not helped by the utter lack of packaging which offered very little protection and also resulted in on the of the sump guards arriving with bent mounting tabs. The rear diff guard did not fit with the supplied bolts as they where too short, the fitting instructions for this vehicle were non-existent with incorrect diagrams which resulted in much frustration in building a new mounting point for the sump guard to fit.
Sump guard for Subaru Forester III. Nice product and fast delivery from Romania to the Netherlands.
I had to drill two holes 10 mm into a crossmember of the car to attach the sump guard. Just a little disadvantage.
Despite going to the extra effort of checking via email that the guard (code: 30.030) would actually fit a 2007 Citroen Berlingo forte 1.4 litre petrol (a bit of a rarity), and receiving confirmation that it would, I was very disappointed that in fact, it did not. The rear mounting slots were too short, and the sump plug access cover was in the wrong place for this engine (although I suspect it is in the correct place for the diesel engine versions). I spent more than a day modifying the guard (cutting, welding & painting) so that it would fit and the sump plug access cover was in the correct position. It would almost have been easier to start from scratch. The guard itself is quite robust, and once fitted, does what it is supposed to do. However expect the cab to be a little noisier, due to the reflected sound from the engine bay. Shipping was very fast, but the protection offered by the packaging was insufficient (another reason why repainting was necessary.
Steel sump guard for Suzuki Grand Vitara, Steel gearbox and differential guard for Suzuki Grand Vitara XL7
Sump guard and transmission guard made very well.
Clingfilm only packaging was insufficient for the long journey to Scotland as sump guard was bent in transit and corners scratched, I bent it back into shape.
Overall a great set of guards for reasonable price that fitted my 2007 Grand Vitara 1.9 DDiS perfectly.
Good looking product, side panels abit of a disappointment as they lasted 5minutes and bent. Main guard amazing has had some abuse and stood up well! Installation was very simple with all fittings supplied
Bom produto a preço acessível. Envio relativamente rápido, mas o empacotamento poderá ser melhorado pois chegou com pequenos riscos. Esquema suficientemente intuitivo e para a instalação. Problemas: a furação não era igual, teve que ser adaptado. O modelo não assenta corretamente pois embate no apoio do motor, o que quando aperto os parafusos faz com que esta fique torta. Após uma hora de adaptações e experiências lá consegui por como deve ser!
Shipping: the packaging was not sufficient to protect the edges of the product from getting scraped. So I had to repaint the edges.
Fitting: 1. the is insufficient fitting information. There should be a step by step guide with diagrams or photos. Instead it is guess work and trial and error. 2. The fabricated 'U' bolts that hold the sides of the guard to the underside of the engine bearers do not fit through the holes that exist in the engine bearers. My Mk 7 SWB FWD 2.2 transit sept 2012, has different sized holes on each side. On the UK near side (front right) the circular hole much smaller than on the other side. I had to grind down the ends and backs both U bolts to get them to pass through the holes. On the right side this took a considerable amount of work, before it would go through the hole. Clearly the design needs updating. 3. With no assembly order it became a fight to get the main sump plate holes to line up with the captive nuts in the sides and the slotted fixings at the rear. It was only after several attempts it became clear that the rear fixings should be mounted first!!! Thankyou.. What should have taken half an hour took over an hour.
At least now the product is fitted, it is doing its job. And well !
Easy to fit although i did add a couple of extra bolts. Excellent value for money. I'd agree with the previous review re shipping, and tracking was not updated for a couple of days, but overall excellent and would recommend.
Well impressed. The ordering process was quick and easy and the guard arrived in just a few days. It seemed very sturdy. I had it fitted and it all went well. Apparently the two little front brackets had no where to be fitted. However the guard seemed very securely fitted. All in all a first class product at a great price, many thanks.
Speedy delivery & well packed, customer service is second to none.
The sump guard fitted in minutes & the pattern is exact.
I would recommend one of these guards to anybody looking for a replacement
The steel product feels a little thinner than I would have expected - hope it is going to be strong enough to protect the sump on rallies. It would have been nice to have an alloy (4mm dural?) option, but my question on that availability was ignored. Incredibly quick delivery (7 days) considering where the sumpguard came from. The sumpguard needed a little adaption as it is designed for a petrol engined car, while my diesel has a slightly wider/deeper sump. Not a major problem.
Solid and well made. The fixings for the front of the xtrail were not exact and required an externally and a little lateral thinking. Over all a great product which has already paid for itself by protecting the car whilst off road vs a stump. Thanks.
Steel sump guard for Suzuki Grand Vitara, Steel gearbox guard for Suzuki Grand Vitara XL7
A good, well made product. The sump guard fitted perfectly but there was difficulty with the gearbox guard as it does not fit the Grand Vitara TD.
With a some fettling and the assistance of a lump hammer we bent the offending wing out to make room for the exhaust pipe and then it fitted perfectly. It is a shame we had to do that as it no longer looks as it was made to, but it does work and with that modification all was well. Other than that all the holes lined and it was pretty simple to fit.
Steel sump guard for the protection of the engine and the radiator for Mitsubishi L 200
The sump guard I bought from you didn't fit correctly ! I had to cut 20mm off the winged bits on the side so it would clear the front lower wishbone mount ! I am a mechanic so this wasn't a problem for me , although a little disappointing !! This is something you should address in your design process for the future or you might get people returning them !!
PS overall this is a well made product at a reasonable price and when you fix the problem I have highlighted it will be better value then the OEM parts !!
Steel sump guard for the protection of the engine and the radiator for Mitsubishi L 200
Sump guard ok. Powder coat chipped in places. Radiator guard fits fine but the sump part catches on the lower part of my suspension. I had to fettle to get it on. I have a 2' lift so might have caused issue.
Finally could sort out what Fords seems to be acceptable on the Transit MK7 and close up the underside of the fully exposed engine bay. Sumpguard fitted good but holes on the LH frame needed a little bit fettling to accept the bracket. As others said already, packaging not quite as good as it could be but all considered good value for money.
Having owned and modified 4x4's for over 30 years I have fabricated and purchased Sump Guards for many 4x4 vehicles, purchasing and the product supplied for my 2015 Suzuki Vitara could not be faulted and is as good as much more expensive skid plates I have purchased in the past. A full step by step fitment on the 2015 Suzuki Vitara can be found at www.vivavitara.com
Very strong product. Packing was very poor and I had some chips. The company said they were working on better packing.
Instructions could be improved to make it easier to fit. Picture on instruction sheet could not be seen properly. How about a link to good instructions online?
Product shipped from Romania and took ten days to get to me but may be faster to less remote places. The website does say eight days I think.
For the MK4 VW golf the extra depth is causing me to bottom out even more than I did with the plastic cover but I suppose it will protect the sump. The golfs sump is very low.
It would be worth using stainless bolts and a countersunk screw for the oil change flap as it is the lowest point.
Bought for my X trail T30. This is a fantastic product which is really well made. It came with all the relevant fittings and was easily fitted. Delivery was quick and I was able to track the delivery every step of the way. This is a product and company you can trust.

Great item well made, packaging could have been better as a few scratches when it arrived. For wise it took some doing but it's a big plate of steel so wobbled around when fitting. All in all a great product at a great price.
