Mudflaps

Changed my 2003 WRX for a 2005 STi this weekend.

My WRX is fitted with Prodrive mudflaps and dealer wanted 300 for a set of Subaru mudflaps fitted to new car.

Seen some on ebay today ranging from 46 to 60. I don't want to pay over the odds, but want very good quality.

Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

yes m8 - they come with brackets - think most heavyweight flaps would need to be drilled just to hold em on...

Don't fancy drilling a new car but what the heck, better than stone chips on the sills.

Will give em a try. The Subaru ones on my WRX look really tatty after 18 months, at least at this price you can replace em every few months.
