you could always do some clear plastidip on the paint. I kinda want the splash guards. I would likely go oem as my dad could probably get me a deal on them.

Some Guy From NY This last weekend I put some OEM splash guards on my car. Pretty simple install, but it is definitely required to take off the rear wheels in order to get the rear splash guards mounted. When the wheels were off it took mere minutes to install.

My rear set had that little gap too. It was easy to fix though. I just dremeled out the mounting hole on the flaps so that I could adjust the position of the flaps better. Once I positioned them nice and tight against the body I tightened the mounting screws and they look OEM.

Unfortunately I don't. When I tried to leave feedback, it told me that the listing was no longer available. I don't know if they got booted off Ebay or what. Sorry...

I've been thinking about these ones. Not sure yet though. I don't like molded ones because they do some damage to the body. But sometimes these ones can look tacky.

Do you have a pic zoomed out a bit?

BaconZombie Wow, either some of you are ridiculously picky, or you just got some crappy sets of mud flaps. Mine fit great, as do the set I put on my mom's car. No issues whatsoever, and I thought I was fairly anal retentive about my car.

I took my fleabay flaps off last night. Couldn't get them to fit right.
