928 motorsports recommends these to protect the A/C compressor and the alternator if the car bottoms out. Does anyone have any experience with these? Are those really worth installing? Here’s a link to the webpage… www.928motorsports.com/parts/chinplate.php

Yes, I've got a set here on a custumers car and a few around here bought them. They don't fit very well. It's something I would not put on my car.

Hi :)

Not got those, but I do have the ally plates that I got from Roger (both the big under rear of engine plate and the S2 front plate that joins it)

When I was doing my 200 plus runs , it grounded out a couple of times and although it twisted the rear plate a bit it DID protect the engine....

I am not sure those others would have IMHO...

All the best Brett :)

Hi Glen :)

I must be honest and say that I have not used those and they may be perfectly adequate....

When I first saw them a while ago ...I "thought" they were intended to allow the car to run up a "kerb" without damage...

Kerb in the UK is the edge of a pavement (sidewalk)

For that I would think they are fine as they would lift the whole width of the car...

But on the road where bumps , cracks , debris etc are randomly spread around , I would highly recommend the plates I got from Roger.... :)

All the best Brett :)

I've got them on my S4. They do protect the bottom of the car, and mine fit as they should. I got mine from a guy that wrecked his 928 before he could install them.
I've never seen the set that Roger sells, so I could not make a comparrison.
I need to raise my front end up about 3/4 of an inch. The PO set the front shocks on the lowest setting. My car will bottom out very easely.

I had them on my 86.5, and they worked well. Got them from Carl at 928Motorports. It was tricky to get them to fit tho - not as easy as an install as advertised. Still, well worth it IMHO, especailly since my car was lowered due to Eibachs.
