Over here is Australia, mud flaps are standard on every model except the top of the line SP23. They removed it for some reason and it is not an option. I guess they don't fit with the different body kit.
I've had mudflaps on some of my cars and not on others. I like them because they really do keep a lot of crud off of the car. They also greatly reduce spray on the highway. Rear wheels kick up just as much junk as front ones do, so I would want to get both front and rear. I strted the post because I was wondering if anyone had bought and installed them themselves. Are they a pain to put on? I'd also like to see what they look like on the 3, so if anyone has pics, post 'em up.
I suppose a question i'm posing would be, is there anyway to just drill into the well of the wheel for the mudflaps to attach to with the side skirts on there? Anyone have a pic of the flaps NOT on the rig yet to see if there is a lip or groove or something which wouldn't allow the flaps to attach?
So people with the flaps and no skirts can message me if you want instead of posting as there are MANY topics on this subject.
I actually think it'd be great if someone could make a sticky FAQ or tutorial on how to install mudflaps?
Cuz the dealer charges an arm and a leg for mudflaps. I'm sure we could all find them cheap at Canadian Tire of some car shop.
erick.s, thanks for bringing up the topic. I was about to make a thread myself
