2014 Impreza 5dr Ltd
Installed a set of Rally Armor UR (grey) mud flaps. Here's some installation tips for those interested:
Approx. 1.5 hour installation. (30min for the first side, 15min for the other side) x 2. Note: the rear mud flaps will take longer to install on a 5dr because you have to remove an additional inner liner (as recommended in the instructions).
Useful tools (but not necessary): body clip removal pliers, trim pry tools, Phillips off-set screwdriver (I didn't have one so I used vise grip pliers and a short bit. There wasn't enough room to use a ratchet).
To removal the clips that have a Phillips head, hold the outer portion while you're unscrewing it. It's only approx. 1/4 turn to remove it.
To reinstall the clips, separate them into 2 pieces and insert the outer portion of the clip first and make sure the body sections are secured. Finally, insert the inner portion of the clip.
If you're not removing your wheels, install the hardware for the inner most portion of mud flap before you install it on the vehicle, but leave a little slack for adjustments. There's very little space to fit your tool to tighten it in the wheel well.
And of course, here are some pictures:
