In my opinion, the OEM flaps look cheap on the car. I think the RB flaps look the best on the MK3.

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.
Idk why the pictures make them look severely crooked! They are a touch but ive been just too lazy to remove the rear wheels to fix them! I will tomorrow when i install my Steeda sway bar! And yes the MK3 is a gorgeous car especially with the black pack I have, But with the thousands of hatches in the motor capitol of the world I wanted to stand out! And when you take a look at the car the mud flaps add a taste of racy-ness to the car! They don't "distract" from the rest of it! And i cant even count how many thumbs up I've gotten from other focus and Subie owners! Thats good enough for me! Ive always wanted the look of a rally car, the flaps and name tags I have accomplish that! To me, a car that catches my eyes is one that looks like it is meant to be on a track and the only reason its on the road is because I'm just driving it to the next event! A sense of race rawness to a car is sexy.

I agree man! I don't think these flaps ruin the car. They are just made for a different look. Not everyone wants the rally look on their car. I love the rally look. I hate the factory look on cars. I like to see some personalization to them. I love people looking at my car. I always get compliments on my mud flaps. But it all just comes down to personal taste.

See, I want Tarmacs, lowering springs, and the flaps still on. I think that would be a good look.

I really want to buy the black rokblokz with the red RB but I'm scared that the red used for the logo will clash and look ugly with my shade of red (Ruby Red). Any thoughts?

Drew, why would you de-flap if you got tarmacs and springs?

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?
