Wanted. Front mudflaps.
« on: 29 May 2018, 10:41:42 »

Ive been looking for a pair for a while, but thought I would ask again.
Would prefer genuine VX, but will consider anything decent.

For what it's worth, I find the genuine VX front mudflaps a pain. They are made of hard plastic, so there is no give in them when they invariably contact speed humps which inturn, because they are mounted around the sill covers can cause the covers to come adrift from their clips and become loose. They also rub the paint off on the wing edges and on the sill covers.
So my advise would be not to bother unless you can find a set of moulded rubber aftermarket ones which would be much more forgiving.

When I bought my estate it had front mudflaps, when I got home, they were removed, every bump, they scraped, and when making progress around corners, they scraped,, don't bother.
Rally cars have them for a reason, large commercials have them by law,.

Mother T’s estate had them, I was always filing them down on twisty lanes.

I wouldn’t bother personally  :y

I've got them , fitted them nigh on 15 years ago .
The NS scrubs very occassionaly in a sharp dip at speed but doesn't trouble me .
I'd rather have them than not as the cow shit over here dries harder than concrete in less than 6 minutes ...

Got similar problems round these parts too, which is one reason why I want to fit them.  :y
