WHY YOU SHOULD BUY EVOLUTION'S THOR AUDI A4 ALUMINUM SKID PLATE!


Audi's oil pans are made of a paper-thin cast aluminum that is easily cracked by many objects such as road debris, manhole covers and speed bumps. While your car may be at stock height, there is only approximately 4 inches of ground clearance with your oil pan. If you are lowered from stock height, there is very little room for error when negotiating an object in your path. Here is some information on this Evolution Aluminum Skid Plate for those of you that haven't seen it before.
  • The plate is 5052 grade aluminum and is 4.8mm (.191 inches) thick.
  • Weighs 16.7 pounds
  • Protects your cars oil pan, a/c pump, radiator & transmission (does not cover the transmission fully).
  • Bolts to you vehicle with 3 structural mounts and up to two additional plastic mounts.
  • 45 to 60 minute install.
  • Once the plate is installed it is only 4-5 bolts that need to be removed for your oil change(1-2minutes).
  • Fits all engines and transmissions. A4, S4 V8 engine owners must read the info at the bottom of the page.
  • Fits perfect with the Hotchkis Front Sway Bar.
  • Never rusts.
  • Maximum amount of ground clearance possible provided.
  • Air duct to allow air flow onto the transmission.
  • Specially designed so you won't have to worry about air forcing your plastic tire well lining back and into your tires.
  • Designed, tested and proven by EVOLUTION IMPORT INC.
  • Shipped to your door step in a box as a complete kit. No other attachments need to be purchased.
  • Draft/Design by: EVOLUTION IMPORT INC.
  • CNC Machine Manufactured.

A detailed easy to follow, step by step guide is only located on our website and not included in the kit. The Install Guide for your kit is: Thor Audi A4 Install Guide


Note: This skid plate does fit the S4 with V8 engine with manual transmission only by adding the spacer kit to the front. This kit does not fit the V8 with auto transmission. All Audi A4/S4 with the V8 engine will require spacers at the front and back of the plate. Two at the front and two at the back. Here is a link to the pack of aluminum spacers: Spacer Kit


Note: There could be surface scratches on the skid plate during manufacturing, handling or shipping which won't compromise the usefulness of the product. Please note that we won't warranty a skid plate for surface scratches as the skid plate is going to get scratched immediately after installation.

Oil Changes:


With the Thor skid plate we do not offer an oil drain hole option. If we were to put one on the skid plate, the hole would be located right on the ramped section of the skid plate. This would be bad as the hole could easily catch an object on the road causing a major hazard for you and other vehicles on the road. So the skid plate will need to be removed in order to gain access to the oil filter and drain plug. However if you want to put your own access holes into the skid plate, it is at your own risk. We have added two 1/2 inch sight holes so you can locate your oil plug for proper alignment while you cut your own oil drain hole. Removal of the skid plate for oil changes is very quick and easy, taking 1-2 minutes. Only the bottom four or five bolts need to be removed and the skid plate drops right down and off of your Audi. The aluminum side wings don't need to be unbolted from the skid plate.

Great Product, Great Customer Service! January 25, 2017
Reviewer: ANDREW JOHNSON from ROCHESTER, NY United States  
The Product:
I am using this skid plate for SCCA Rally X and TSD Rally. It is extraordinarily strong, having taken hits (at speed) from rocks, ruts, ice chunks, and jumps without issue. If it can handle what I put it through, it will handle anything you come across on your commute.

The Customer Service:
I wanted to be absolutely sure that the skid plate would be up to the task. I gave them a call and spoke with Neil. I told him what I would be doing with it, and asked for any advice he may have to make the set up as solid as possible. He suggested a couple of minor mounting changes and some upgraded riv nuts. During install I noticed a slight fitment issue, that wouldn't have been a big deal if I wasn't pounding on it as hard as I knew I would be. I contacted Neil again, and he went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with the end result. I am currently battling for first in class because I have the confidence to attack the rough sections like I never have before.

Fits 2004 S4 Avant - V8 Manual - Easy Install February 24, 2016
Reviewer: Jonathan  
As noted in the title, fits a 2004 S4 Avant with v8 and manual transmission. For sure you need the 3/4" spacer kit, and I actually needed to 'stack' two of the standard 1/2" spacers for the front bolt, as the 3/4" wasn't quite tall enough to clear the inter-cooler bar. Generally it was easy to install (maybe 20-30mins) and it's really solid under there. It's too bad that they've pre-cut the potential holes for the oil-plug as I'd rather have the plate solid. Also, on my vehicle, the oil plug is on the opposite side anyway, so even if I wanted an oil-plug hole, it wouldn't be where the pre-drilled holes are. It was also easy to 'trim' the transmission splash-guard (extra plastic behind the plastic skid plate that the THOR replaces) and then re-attach it to the THOR with the speed clips that attached it to the original plastic skid plate. There are pre-drilled holes in the back of the THOR plate, perhaps for this purpose. So my transmission area is also still protected from the elements (plastic still, but better than nothing I think)
