This happened while doing a 3-point turn, I backed into an ever so slightly raised driveway and the flap took the full weight of the car and busted through

Default Can't decide between grey or red lettering

I'm ready to pull the trigger on these, but I simply am torn on what color letters to get. I like the red because it goes with the red lighting on the car and WRX logos on the seats. However it is a bit flashy. I also like that the red breaks up the length of the flaps and they don't look like they are a mile long.

The grey is nice and subtle and blends in. It's possible I may only run the front flats at times as well.

I've had the grey ones sitting in the shopping cart for the last few hours....LOL.

A pic of my car so you can see what it looks like. I was trying to pick the best color flaps for my car, so I posted a pic.

Maybe I wasn't clear enough, but I was looking for feedback. I already bought a set though...so thanks.

Red mudflaps with white lettering is the only way to go.

Agreed! Although some people straight up hate them I've had quite a few people who didn't think it was a good idea change their minds once they saw them on the car. I love them, personally.

I used to hate mudflaps, seeing as I thought they were silly in south Texas. Then a friend bought them, and I want..

Yep, I get some haters but you know what, they're all just jealous.

Im trying to find a specific type of mud flap, I cant fine them anywhere. Instead of being the flap attaching directly to the body its attached to like a metal rod which attaches to the body. Any help would be much appreciated

Love the pink RA's, though I didn't get a set since the "Breast Cancer Awareness Edition" text under it is REALLY snobby/pretentious on RA's part to me. Kinda like driving a Prius and having a bunch of stickers about how it's low emissions.

Do you ever get the rear hatch COMPLETELY covered in snow/dirt when out during the snow? As in from the spoiler to the bottom of the bumper?

I love that it clarifies that, especially since I have other SFB vinyls on my car.

That's kind of the point isn't it? Although flawed...

Really only from highway driving. It's tempting to get the Perrin riser kit but I'd like to retain functionality of the hatch.

I think it may be time for wider front flaps or for them to come off all together. I have flapatax on here now and they have been great and saved my sides from rocks but idk.

I personally think that having the text under it just screams "look at what RA's doing for BC!". A simple pink ribbon with pink RA logo would have been much classier. I mean most folks understand that a pink ribbon mean BC awareness, right? That's just how I view it though and my view could be wrong.

Would the wing riser kit help much at all? I think it might lead to a little less snow at the hatch windshield at most. Wish Perrin would give that a test. I sometimes worry that I'd get ticketed for having a non-visible rear plate due to the snow/dirt.
