    Ive got mudflaps fitted to my coupe and trust me they are a right pain in the arse!!!

    Before you fit them, I suggest you trim the front ones by 30mm cos when I originally fitted them on standard 16" rims and stand suspenssion they rubbed when going around corners... even more so when i had a full load. Speed bumps, especially with the plastic ones they have in car parks.

    Some people just simply screw them to the plastic arch... but in doing this, i dont think you get a good fit on the outside as it leaves quite a big gap. So i used the clips that are provided.

    You will get two clips for each mudflap... the opening on these is quite small/narrow so you will need to make it wider. Once you have done this you need to slightly cut the plastic inner arch so you can 'clip' the mudflap to the body work. You need to have some patience as its very very fiddly so take your time.

    I also suggest that you screw the bottm of the mudflap to the side of the skirt cup (I still need to do this)

    Here are some pics of the mudflaps fitted... If you want i'll get some pics of how the clips are fitted.
    Let me know if you need any more info

    Deffo agree about trimming them - although the previous owner of my car obviously drove on bumpy roads, as they have worn away to the correct length now lol!
