    Default Mud flap advice

    Hi just for some advice I'm getting the trim on the car colour coded next week and don't want the paint to get covered in stone chips. So I'm going to get some mud mud flaps but don't know which ones the plastic molded vx ones or some rubber ones.

    Cheers

    will the moulded ones do the job heard a couple of people say they dont actually work.

    The front is suceptable to being hit by kerbs/speed bumps. If it was colour coded then all of the paint would be scraped off within a year or so due to most folk not caring.

    You can replace with an irmscher splitter or get that one colour coded but at least you would try to look after it.

    Pretty sure i've seen you kicking about Dundee btw

    They are better than nothing however I fitted two plain flaps over my rear ones just to give it that bit more protection
