Splash Guards Pics ??

I'm interested in getting these but I have 2 questions:

1. Any pics out there of them on a hatch? I'd like to see what they look like installed.

2. Do they help with rear spray on the back window? When I'm on the freeway in the rain, I have to keep clearing my back window and it appears that's its from the giant vortex of water that I'm creating behind me.

I had the dealer install the Molded guards.
IMO they look bad ass but there seems to be thinking otherwise at times.

I guess it's to each their own with them and IMO on old cars they look horrible, all square and sh|t...but on the newer cars the molded ones look hella nice...

oh, Pix yea... I gotta get a few up. I know I saw a few in the color threads.

afa the back window? NOPE. While they do their job, and eliminate the splash on the sides, my Hatch window still gets hella dirty .

Man, I would love those but I hate to intrude in someone else's thread to get them.

Are they for a hatchback?

Mud flaps won't help with the vortex of the hatch. It's the shape of the car that causes the rear to get so dirty.

Yup, you need a different spoiler to help bring air down from the top of the car to help with the road grime on the back of the car.

the flaps fit both hatch & sedan. as far as a spoiler. i would love to change mine. but that means purchase, prime & paint, install, and pinstripe. too pricey.
