Default 2015 TDI Skid Plate

Anybody install a skid plate on a 2015 TDI yet? I just went to order one and the found out that while the skid plate for 2012-2014's fit, on the 2015's VW added an intake silencer that sits where one of the mounting brackets for the skid plate goes. So to mount the skid plate the intake silencer must be removed.

I am thinking this really shouldn't be a big deal, but was curious if anybody here has installed a plate and removed the silencer.
