They are extremely helpful in minimizing paint damage in the winter, especially where they place sand and grit on the roads. I had them on my RS with 237,000 miles on it and I would recommend them highly. To each their own.

I am on my 4th subaru now never had them and never had a problem with paint. I live in NY so we use sand on the roads. I wonder if subaru makes small color matched mud flaps. I had them on my miata looked good and did the same thing. The RA flaps are just to ugly for me to buy sorry

^ Im kind of with you on the no flaps but i just don't like the rally armor flaps style. They don't flow to well with the body, but they do serve a purpose. Wide car + wide tire= a mass of rock chips on the rear quarters and behind the front fender. Rather have a non flowing flap than chipped up paint.

Here's some quick shots I took after my first wash.
That color looks awesome. Is that a wrx? Or STI?

Everyone's cars are looking great! What is everyone doing (and what products are you using) to keep your plasma blue pearls looking so nice?

i was going to ask mike (evansomething subaru) what is the colour number for PBP. I want the colour code for it!!!! Im going to msg mike, or call SOA and ask.

LOL MUDFLAPS FTW !!!!!!! actually, not really, mine is 5 dollars thats tax included , thx lol

I use mud flaps for my summer farm position. I get to pull around 20 acres with my stock rims and continental extreme dws. Pave, tar, dirt and grassland mostly. But i pull trailers most of the time. Its hard work.

My touch up bottle says "F9T" if that is any help.

And I'm glad everyone likes the flaps on my car so well! It sure is a good thing you all don't have to drive it or look at it in your own garage

Cute, you requoted an old post. I still disagree. You can't tell me that not modding a brand new car is bad. Again, when you mod you put stress on other parts of your car that may fail. There are reasons they recommend a break in period. This is common sense, maybe you should get some. Go crawl back in your hole now

JMO of course.
You contradicted yourself. You should also read around, modding a car will make it less reliable people! Come on! A few of you guys really need to read a little.
