      Same here. But again, why am I seeing mostly WRX owners bolting these on to protect their paint?

      Judging by the looks of that A4, it looks like they beat the snot out of it and seeing as the plate is placed in the window, I'm guessing it seems a lot of off road use. The pink is if you lose one in the woods and can easily go back and find it.

      Wannabe Ken Block people, when he drove for the USA Subaru Rally Team.

      On gravel rally stages, the extended width helps with reducing spraying of rocks at spectators at rallies (the rocks that would fly high and injure a person). it's not really a mud thing.

      This could be a fun thread though. I want to see the most ridiculous mud flaps on the most mundane cars.

      It's on a non-ST Focus hatch (manual thank god), so no, no rallies.

      I have the big flaps on a non-subaru...... We also rally-x the car and have begun stripping it for more rallying

      I feel the same way about people who buy Corvettes and get out accelerated by garbage trucks.

      I have mudflaps, and I use them.



      It's comforting to know there's always a chronically angry person at the ready to correct my think.

      *sigh* They so do. And that brine they have been using the last couple of years is just instantaneous rust.

      I hope folks aren't mounting these mud flaps by drilling into their fender lips.. unless rusted wheel wells is the next fad.

      I guess you wouldn't want to get those expensive Supreme mud flaps dirty .

      Bad example, that car was actually raced. Try again.
