    Coupe front mud-flaps

    Right, I tired fitting a full set of mud flaps to the Coupe this weekend.
    I fitted the rear ones on quite easily, without any problems as they just screw into place.

    Then I tired fitting the front ones and I was there for about half an hour and I didn't get anywhere!!!!

    How the hell do you fit the front mudflaps on a coupe? I just need to know how to clip the mudflap into place. It seems as if you need to cut the inner arch...

    Help....

    theres a set on ebay tailored for the coupe. see if yours are the same. if not looks like you need to cut them to fit over the side skirts.

    Yeah, with the front pair, you get two metal clips to clip it to the front wing... as I said, I think you need to cut the inner arch. And there is also one screw which holds them in place on the cup bit of the side skirts.
