I'm interested in one for my Forester XT. I know it isn't "certified", but has any consideration been made to the front crumple zone, airbag sensors, etc?

Thanks

We will be test fitting on the 2nd gen Forester hopefully within a week or so.

As for crumple zones, it's aluminum, it will bend if your car is hit in the front, as for airbag sensors, the air bag sensor on most new cars is located in the dash or on the firewall, it doesn't use the same kind as the older cars that had them in the bumpers. This is under the bottom, also so it's not going to effect your air bag sensors.

Shoot me an e-mail paisan@azpinstalls.com and I'll get you info as soon as it has been test fitted on a forester.

Default questions

On a WRX, does this replace any of the plastic OEM "skid plate"? Also, looks like this plate has to be removed for oil changes, correct? Thanks.

Yes and yes, it's basically 4 bolts on the GC8 and 5 on the WRX.

these skidplates are great, thats my sti. the skidplate has to be removed for an oil change, but its better then your oil pan getting removed by a rock, manhole or stump.....

Ok, I received the skid plate on Wednesday and I recieved the 5 bolts today.... I guess I'm all set..

Thanks guys!! I will have pics soon....

I take it that the bolts go into pre-existing holes????
Do you think that adding washers would be wise or pointless?

Not looking to bash you or anything, but don't you think that the front edge of the plate should be flared up and rounded to the shape of the frame, instead of being just bent on a brake and left with sharp corners? Or even extended forward and formed right over the radiator support, thus protecting it too?

Now, that's what I'm talking about. Too bad they don't list WRX in their availability.

Washers is a good idea, we will be including them in future orders, this is V1.0 of the plates, so we are still firming up the particulars, that's why the bolts came under separate cover than the plate itself.

That is possible, but the more bends, turns, the more $ it costs to make and we know how subie folks don't like to spend $. Also these plates are meant for light offroading/pothles, etc. Anything that this plate will protect from, your radiator support will handle, as it's quite beefy. On the WRX plates it actually does bend up in the front.

-mike

PS: I'm not sure why they list it as "airbag compliant" any plate you put down there would be airbag compliant, as the sensors are not located down/around that area on USDM cars.

Also if you check into importing stuff from Australia, you are gonna be looking at some serious cash. We carry the ECB line of products http://www.ecb.com.au and it costs a great deal of $ to airship products from australia. A plate would cost about $150-225 just for the shipping alone.

Thanks for the feedback on the washers. Please keep us Version 1 consumers up to date with any redesign or mounting changes in the future.

By the way the rallyarmor sticker was a nice touch...

Thumbs up

I just finished the installation of the plate. It went in without a single problem. The entire process took about 10 minutes. Ok add a few minutes for a few trips to the basement for tools I kept forgetting to bring up.

It looks freakin awesome! Thanks guys for a great product.

Bring on the Pinebarrens and the snow!!
