    Angry Mud guard madness

    Hi all,

    I've recently bought some mudguards from LMF.

    I ordered some for a 2006 Vectra SRi, and received them OK. Come to fit them tonight (with my car-buff of a mate) and they dont even match the lines of the bumper on the back, big 1/2'' gaps between the flap and the front wing. TBH, they looked dreadful - so I took them off.

    Does anyone know a reason for the poor fitment? They came in an official Vauxhall bag, so I thought they would fit well. Very disappointed.

    Also, does anyone know what LMF are like with refunding things?

    Regards

    A sad James

    No disrespect to LMF - its not their fault.

    I got a set of flaps from LMF and returned them without hassle. They did say they would contact Vauxhall to let them know, don't know how that went on. Never got round to ordering a set of pre-fl.

    I know it would be a silly mistake, but you didn't fit fronts to rear and vice versa did you?

    Nope, it was defo right!

    Do you think if I took them into my local Vauxhall dealer they would swap them? Or would they tell me to do one?
