I posted pics in the Gallery showing my splash guards. They are located under: North American Models, 2012 5-Door, 2012 Splash Guards.

They are still pending approval in the gallery. I'm not allowed to post attachments to my posts. Help me out, how do you attach pics directly to a post?

The easiest way to do it is create a free photobucket account here:http://photobucket.com/

Then upload photos to that website. Once the image is uploaded, simply copy the IMG code and paste in into your FF reply.

Let me know if you need more help.

Well I think these would be the way to go too. I only said they were pricey because the Exterior Protection Package costs $245!

Would you please post up the parts# you bought for your 5-door. Are they the same as the ones shown for the Exterior Protection Package?

Furthermore, I just got back from a road trip in a different hatchback. My buddy's hatch didn't have protection whereas mine has OEM splash gaurds. The side of his car was splattered with tar and mud whilst mine had a distinct line where the grit had been blocked.

Let's see if this works. Here are three shots of the splash guards. Now, how do I post them as pics and not links?

Those look real nice! I've never done these before, if I buy the OEM mudflaps do they just screw into pre-existing holes?

Installation is really easy. You remove the existing plugs and install plastic pop rivets that get hammered in. All the holes match up, one hole needs to be drilled.
Edit: Installation steps:
Fronts:
Remove tire
The instructions will show which rivets to use in which holes
Pry out 3 wheel well liner plugs and anchors and the plug and anchor under the car holding the front of the plastic scuff guard (I also tightened 3 Torx screws supporting the wheel well liner with a 5/32 allen wrench)
Fit guard and install top plastic pop rivet, hammer in the rivet to hold the guard in place. Install the other two rivets. You may have to support the wheel well liner when hammering the rivets, there's some bounce back
Install pop rivet under the car
Drill a 15/64 (6mm) hole through the existing inner most hole on the guard and install the final rivet. My cordless drill did not fit between the brake disk and the wheel well liner so I had to drill at an angle, seems OK though. A small right angle drill will work great.
Rears:
Remover tire
Remove two Torx screws with a 5/32 allen
Slip screw clip on to soft felt liner material lining it up with the existing hole
Fit guard and install Torx screws and screw into screw clip
Install pinch clip at the tab and push like hell or hammer into place
Now repeat on the other side of the car and your done.
