    Should be ok so long as you don't have SRI bumpers and cills (or VXR) - contrary to comments, the flap moulding contour is no match to anything other than standard cills and bumpers

    You can only get them second hand. The ones that fit the SRI are now discontinued and can no longer be bought. There's a few comments on other threads saying they fit with the addition of a hole drilled. This is not the case.
    I needed some of the plastic fixings to fit mine, I went to VX and got a rear flap set as they would not sell the fixings alone (only cost me a fiver!) - I offered up the new rear flap to the car and the profile is way different.

    Chewy there are 2 sets of basic side skirts, not inc vxr style, and rear skirt.

    First link the mud flaps to fit are Front 91158529 & Rear 91158528. Pretty sure its the other shape skirts that cause the issue and are a different shape.

    That's right Dasarab, I think around the time the Vec was facelifted, the flaps that fit the SRI cills and bumper were discontinued.
