Re: Mudflaps

look like crap, fit like crap, avoid. never bought any myself but seen them on chavvd motors.


the proper fiat ones are still avaibable in teh brio catalogue for ~15 for each pair. but they look gash compared to the proper ones that were around when they mk1 was still avaible new.

also they used to sell 'stone guards' in the brio catalogue. and are similar to the mk2 guards, i.e short harder rubber mouldings that fit very snuggly around the front and rear bumpers.
they are about 30 a pair, (you need two pair), but I haven't found any yet.


only ever seen one car with them on twas in a breakers yard but the whole car had been sold and I was turfed away from it

Re: Mudflaps

I must agree these look like crap. They would be better without the logo to stick out imo. I too wouldnt put them on my car but i greatly respect people who do. It's not pleasant driving behind someone who's wheels are throwing all sorts of dirt on your headlight, hood, windscreen etc.

Re: Mudflaps

Rally style mudflaps can really make your car look nice methinks, but they need to be the width of your wheel and almost dragging on the floor, else they look pathetic.

I hardly ever see cars with propper rubber mudflaps, just these 5 plastic tat from halfrauds.

Mudflaps will go on my car at some point + they are very usefull
