Your view on Mudflaps

Whats your view?

Do you have them?

Do you want them?

I personally think they look the bees knees - would have them yes.... BUT do they protect the car in any way? or is it just a visual mod?

I would highly recommend them - especially the Scot Lowe items. They may not be the cheapest mudflaps out there but they are top quality. You even get the anti rust compound with the fitting kit. It is just a case of whether or not you like the look of them as there is no denying the practicality issue of saving your paint work from nasty stone chips.

These are mine.................

can understand why people would put them on to protect the paintwork,but not for me-theyre up there with rally graphics unless you are actually rallying wouldnt have either sorry chaps who have them, just my opinion.

I know it isn't a Scoob but I have a set of Scott Lowes Mudflaps fitted to the Evo. Yes they do enhance the look of the car but for me they really do stop the shite from the roads getting all over the car.

They have made a big difference to the amount of road grime etc that I find on the side of the car now and the stone chips etc. have also reduced. So IMHO they are not just for show but do a good job too.

and I would just like to say that I am massively impressed with Scott Lowes product and his after sales service. Top bloke 8)

Hi All
I fitted a set, ordered from Scott Lowe, this year and couldn't be happier.
In their bid to get into Europe and try to reduce carnage on the highways the local roads division have spent all summer "refreshing" the surfaces so now 9 out of 10 cars in Turkey are covered in the black stuff and loose gravel - not mine though thanks to Mr Lowe.
As the locals preferred method of removing tar is to liberally soak the car in diesel then vigorously scrub with something that looks like a brillo pad my mudflaps have saved me a load of grief,no doubt do help keep the car cleaner and are not really that unkindly to the eye.
Thumbs up from Turkey on this one

Hi all,
On the subject of flaps I believe that I may have an opinion
Of course flaps are necessary, it just depends on their size :twisted:
I'm not a great lover of the floppy dangly type. They don't look good, I think we can all agree on that :wink:
A small neat set is what's called for. Good on the eye and functional to boot.
Coloured flaps are very attractive, black, yellow, red, white etc. are great.
I'm currently bereft of a set of flaps but hope to be checking some out at the weekend. :P
The last set of flaps I had became somewhat worn out so I'm in the market for a fresh set. :wink:
Flaps rule

Cool.

Hi Peter,
Yes, I'm in the market.
Second hand doesn't appeal.
So I think I'll have to go mail order.

Hope everyone is well, and seriously, I am in the market for a black set of mudflaps.
I think they look good as well as being functional. the track on the scoob throws every kind of crap up the doors.

Cool.
