Ok,I am really getting frustrated with this car. I just bought a new belly pan (5,000 km ago) and hit a piece of snow or so and it is in a million pieces now. Is there a stronger after market belly pan out there?

Your best bet is a Panzer Aluminum Skid Plate: http://www.dieselgeek.com/servlet/Detail?no=374. I'm contemplating one myself. This is my second belly pan...I only have 4 pins holding it in out of 8. But I'm lowered, so I'm pretty much asking for it.

I forgot you bought a Thor instead. And they're the same price! Seems like a no-brainer to me...

My stock pan is currently held in place (and together) by cable ties, so I'd really need a new one too! Mmm, I wonder do those companies ship them overseas, Thor's pan looks cool...

The Panzer pan looks pretty good. I think I will get it this summer. Thanks for the link and info!

If you're going to spend the money, I'd probably go with the Thor. It's a little thicker for the same price.
