Default steel oil pan

The 04 Golf oil pan is rusty. I looked around but can only find aluminum pans.
Did they come with either pan OEM?
I would prefer steel for protection.
Any comments?

I'm running their pan from their kit. I was highly impressed the lengths they went to to save me money on the kit too. Like their little machined angled flange that rids the need to get a new turbo oil line, which is a 160-ish dollar part from vw. Braided steel. They could give you a smaller tube of silicone gasket though. I used like 10% of it.

My only beef with them is when i order something to realize one of the things i ordered wont ship for a month. Then trying to get everything to ship in two boxes at different times, invoice for extra shipping cost. It's just a pain to get it sorted out.
And even once it's sorted out it'll take another extra day or two for them to get around to shipping it.

i second that

and if you look underneath the car look for a three bolt sensor on the bottom of the oil pan and if u have it then you need one with the sensor hole cut out.
