At least the OEM ones fit properly and are not crooked looking.

The MK3's have nice lines, those street sweeper mud flaps do an injustice to the looks of the car.
I don't have mudflaps on my mk3 yet, but I understand why people want bigger ones. On the cars I've had, all the tiny OEM flaps ever did was scratch the pain underneath. They never really worked as well as the bigger rubber ones.

With that said, I don't really think the huge ones look great, but I know they work better and won't scratch the paint. Maybe ones that aren't so ostentatious and oversized, but still a big bigger and more useful than the OEM ones?
