Some of you have them and swear by them, others think they look ugly. I'm planing to install them since i saw a GTI with oem mud flaps and they look really good on the car. Not to big and they kinda loo like they are part of the body. Why you like/dislike them? Of course post em if you have them.

just picked up a set of rears for mine!!! will mount up soon

With my long commute and crap DC metro roads, I went with Rokblokz short flaps to go along with my 17" RSe05s. They're not as obtrusive in real life as I thought they would be:

I haven't seen anyone here running just rear flaps. You'll still get a lot of spray from the front wheels since they can turn. Besides, they're usually sold as an entire set, front and rear.

I'm planning on getting Rieger sideskirts, hence the no front flap imperative. Just curious about the looks of rear flaps alone.

Already resurrected, so 1/2 cent included. :p

I have the OEMs on my CFB Rabbit. Enough black on it that they blend in well, and after issues with the leading edge of body panels nearest the tires I have a preference whether really needed or not.

After the fact I think I saw them on DAG (if memory serves) cheaper than the dealership (I want to say around $84-85/set).

We put Rokblokz on my wife's Tiguan as they were cheaper than OEM and I hadn't found DAG yet. Adjustability in or out more could be useful, but she has them all the way in and aren't obtrusive. They're all black so not rowdy like many Subies and such have. With that one certainly want them as it's more likely to do dirt/gravel roads.

In the end it's your personal preference. Those who don't like them don't have to get them.

Theyre available in pairs, I have the rears sitting in my garage waiting to go on for literally months now lol. I just got the rears mainly to cut down on the amount of dirt and grime on my rear window

I really dig the look but when looking around and older car with mudflaps it seems to have destroyed the paint,so I just left them in the boot at the moment

I would think it depends on where you live and the roads you drive. I'm in CA so the car has never seen snow or salted roads. If I lived somewhere that had harsher conditions I think a little paint protection film in the covered areas would do the trick.

That could be the case as I’m from Uk and the roads weather and salt are all shite.
