Are there any pictures are pricing on the steel pan. What is the ground clearance with the steel and aluminum pans vs the OEM pan and the OEM hybrid pan for a 1.8T?
We have a few up on our facebook page. To answer your questions:

  1. The oil pan height brings the base of the pan about 5mm from the mouth of the oil pump pick up. It is shallower than the OEM pan but we do not use this as a factor in marketing the pan.
  2. Both the aluminum and steel pan are the exact same dimensionally.
  3. The OEM hybrid pan is the biggest joke / mistake VAG ever made. We started changing them out on customers cars last winter , expecting the same (or more) this winter as the salt eats right through the plate and bolts. It is a poor excuse for an OEM replacement and even IF you hit a block of ice , the plate may bend BUT the pan will crack.
