    I had mine on my car for the three weeks that i drove it.. It works great in the rain with the fall leaves on the grounds. No stuck leaves on you painted side skirts.... In the winter i dont have to worry about rock chips from the salt rock spreaders we get here in ihitty pa....

    I like mud flaps - I think nothing else considered (saving your paint from chips), it gives it a great look, and it makes driving safer (less spray on vehicles behind you).

    I went with the RallyArmor basic flaps to save on $$, and the rear ones have bent due to how long I've had them on the car and the wind resistance (I don't really care about this TBH). Supposedly, the UR ones will not bend as badly (if at all). I will probably buy UR flaps when I'm done with my engine/suspension mods to replace the basics.

    I'm not a fan of mudflaps. I don't mind if my car throws some dirt or stones around. I've read others complaints that they disappear after a harsh winter drive. My car has plenty of wear and tear on the paint at this point so I can't justify mud flaps. If my car was brand new or in show car shape, then I think mudflaps might look nice.

    Plus the geek in me says those things cause wind resistance.

    I love the look of a muddy car. It means you're having fun with it.

    I'm going for the lowered, time-attack look, so mudflaps don't fit with my theme. RE-01R's and mudflaps just don't seem to match.

    For the rally look though, they seem to me to be a must have...

    And yes, mudflaps work best on the exterior, not the interior
