Cheaper splash guard options?

I was looking at getting some splash guards for my focus but, was curious if there were any cheaper options that looked good other than spending $100 for the oem ones. Would prefer something that I didn't have to drill a bunch of holes to mount and looked nice like the factory ones do.

Cheaper splash guard options?

Avoid the $20 Chinese knock off oem ones. Both front ones ripped off after 6 months for me haha. After putting on the zetec kit I've now been running short rokblokz and been really happy. No new holes required

You are going to have to drill holes for any splash guard you put on. It may as well be the factory option.

For what it's worth, the only holes you drill are in the plastic wheel well liner.

You can buy a complete set for about $85 shipped on ebay if you watch.

I went through the same deliberation for a few months for my Focus and finally broke down and bought a set and have no regrets.

Those rokblokz looks pretty nice actually I like the factory ones too though. I'm almost thinking they might work out better due to being bigger as I will be driving my car down a lot more dirt and gravel roads here soon and i hate rock chips. But I will have to find more pictures some shots look awesome and some look a bit out of place to me for some reason.
