Default Anyone using the new rallyarmor OE classic?

http://www.rallyarmor.com/product_in...74ee4b4b06a715



These just came out at the end of May for the 08-14 STi and 11-14 WRX. I just ordered a set last night and was wondering if anyone is already using them.

Exactly!! Pics and anecdotal info please! I only have the URs on my hatch because I was tired of the destruction of my paint. I know the URs were wide enough to protect the paint quite well down the side of the car and by the pics on the Rally Armor site it seems these new flaps clearly are not as wide...but look better. If they provide pretty good coverage if likely switch up to these new ones. But I don't want road rash down the sides and on the rear wheel flares.

Same here. Very curious.

Personally, for a few years now I thought RA should make molded mudflaps. ...Instead of designing UR flaps for Fiat 500's and Hyundai Veloster's

I like these way more than the, IMO, butt ugly UR flaps that they offer. Still hard to justofy $180 for some flaps though

$100 and I'd be a buyer but not at $180.

Yeah its a bit ridiculous. I'd bite the bullet but I'd like to see more than just the angles Rally Armor has on their site.

I installed the rear mud guards yesterday. Doing the fronts this weekend. They fit really well, I was surprised by how smooth the install went. Pics will be posted soon

Heres a few pictures of the rears I finished. Fronts will follow soon. I thought they were a little pricey too but if Subaru had some, they'd probably be around the same price if not more. Over all I am happy with them so far. I didnt like the way the other UR mud guards looked. Glad I went this route.

Yeah, you have to drill 4 holes for the fronts. Not into the metal only the plastic fender liner. Hopefully getting around to installing the fronts tomorrow. I spent my time tonight mounting my accessport - damn double sided tape wouldnt hold it for more than a few hours.

The URs used brackets, whereas these don't appear to...pretty appealing since they look less conspicuous.

Theres no brackets with these OE guards. They use these for the front.

Guess I don't have to decide whether I want these or not...since they don't have this style for sedans listed on their website.

How flexible are they? My UR flaps constantly drag, I'm worried a more rigid flap would get ripped off.

They arent flexible at all, they are hard plastic. I never thought about them scraping and being ripped off. I would imagine the fronts would rub the most? I'm at stock height too

Are your front flaps fitting tightly at the bottom of the side skirt? I have a slight gap that I can't make go away. It has to do with the outer lower insert.

I was thinking it was supposed to be completely flushed, there is just a small gap. No big deal.

I did drive it through an auto carwash and they survived. I scraped the fronts today on some small speed bumps. Scared me for a sec.
