What do they look like? I think most of the people here believe there isn't much space in the wheel well between the tire and the car to have one fit (I know I could barely get my hand between to clean the well area out).

Please post some pics!!!

I am definitely interested in these "mini splash guards". My rear side extensions or sills are getting pebbled to death...to the point where paint is chipping off. I have a hatchback so therefore OEM mudguards won't fit due to space constraints.

If these mini splash guards look good on your dad's MB, and could possibly fit on the Mazda3....please let me know.

Thanks,
Spencer

Yes, please post some pics or site where these can be purchased. My car's pretty badly caked with snow after driving in the snow these past few days.

Wasn't the issue also that one of the set of bolts was taken up by the side sills which left only one hole for mud guards? I don't remember...

Since I take delivery of my 3 at the end of January and our Echo is not off lease until February, I'm going to see if the mud guards (which are really short and compact) will fit on the 3:

I'll let you guys know ASAP. A full set is probably about $50 from Toyota.
Kewl...I can't wait to see the results.

Thanks,
