Re: Mud flaps

i took them off my EF as they scraped and broke, and to be honest they dont make that much difference anyway.

If you're getting sprayed with mud and crap from cars in front - take it as a sign to back off.

Re: Mud flaps

They're ugly as dogs balls.. just keep well away from others without them when there are stones around.. sucks to be sprayed with stones and mud

TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way

Re: Mud flaps

Why should they be law? If you're getting stuff flung all over you you're too close.

Re: Mud flaps

the law should state that mudflaps belong on really boring cars that noone cares what they look like.....like Camry's, Hyundai's and my slow fuel guzzling fairmont

XY Fairmont

actually they are an option on the Honda Jazz [a crappy car] and the BA Falcon [an awesome car]. so your statement is flawed and so are you :D. nah, but seriously, yes it may be annoying for you to get the odd stone flying up, but its probably more annoying to the driver to constantly hear a scraping noise thanks to speedbumps, and cars look better without em.

Re: Mud flaps

I live on a dirt road back home, and believe me, no matter how big the mudflap, you still get plenty of rocks flying towards your windscreen.
