Default The Official Mud Flaps / Splash Guards Thread for 2013 Impreza 5-Doors Hatchback.

Can someone recommend me some mud flaps or mud guards or slpash guards whatever you like to call them that are under $50?

I don't care about how nice it looks or how cool it is like the Rally Armor or DRT COMPONENTS flaps. I just want a set that works and prevent the mud, dirt, snow, and salt getting under my car and eating my paint.

I really like the Rally Armor and DRT but they are way out of my budget. I just want some cheap ones preferably under $20...is that even possible? Maybe $50 MAX...

Searched "mud flaps" on Amazon and found these
$14.99$14.99
ones that will fit my 2013 impreza 5dr base model but I also don't want to buy something that won't work or last a few months.

Any recommendations guys?

This my first subie, want to protect the paint from the winter salt eating my subie's metal and paint.

wow that's pretty cheap, aren't Rally Armor supposed to be $150+ ?

I looked everywhere and only found $150+ prices.

Why is this website selling it for so cheap? What's the catch?

I need one for my 2013 Impreza 2.0i base hatch

They are the "basic" not the UR ones most likely. I have the basics on my 08 wrx an they are fine... A little bit deformed on the back (curled outward a little) but looks fine

What's the difference between the $48 one's and $140 one's?

It's showing $140 for mine....

Check in the exterior mod forum, there's a big mudflap thread there.

The expensive ones are a different material that's much beefier.

This sounds like an "Official" thread. Can I bring my 12' Impreza in here, since you seem to separate them out. Also, if you want to be grouped with the 12' folks Flapatax is currently working on a set for "us" and a couple of members currently have test versions installed on their cars.
