Question Anyone source Sti mudflaps? Regular or the SWRT ones?

Didn't like the ones I saw on the stock 02's
here. Wondering about the stupidly expensive
Sti ones, or others. Any US sources or
am I back to cutting my own?

Normal Sti's: http://www.subaru-sti.co.jp/parts/new_impreza/cat1.html

Sti's WRC/T ones: http://www.poweraxel.com/sti/news/ne.../sti01015.html $190? ouch.

The STi flaps are actualy $500 not just $190. I am looking into getting a set and everyone has told me that they actually are worth it... they will last longer than the other brands.. sparco, cusco, and a few others all ofer them but the STi's are by far the best. I don't know though $500 for some mud flaps.....

Edited:
yes I speak/read Japanese,
but need to remember to PAY ATTENTION!
(smacks self)

Thinking about having some friends in
Japan buy me a set and send em' here.
Maybe not worth it now.

OOPS! **** I didn't even
see that 19,000 yen for front OR back.
hehe. ok, that does change things a bit,
doesn't it? hehe!

Yer right on target N.U.
Guess that makes the $500 more understandable, ne?

<FONT face="Comic Sans MS">If you can get someone to ship a set of 4 STi mudflaps plus their mounting hardware to the US for ~5 American dollars, I will give you a cookie. Hell, I'll give you EVERY cookie I can find. Also, I believe if you read your Japanese a little more closely, it's 19,000 yen for the front set and 19,000 yen for the rears. If you can get a full set shipped for 19,500 yen (~$165 US) you'll make a killing reselling them .

Unfortunatly "real" rally mud flaps are required by the rules to attach to the SIDE of the fender as well as the fenderliner. You need to attach small brackets to the side of the fender to hold the "edge" of the flap that goes up the side of the car. These brackets require small bolts, and thus holes in your fender, unless you have another inventive way of attaching them securly.

edit: Opps, this is in regard to the MRT flaps and others of simular design......

Thumbs up

I have a set on my wagon of the kind W&L Subaru's Motorsports Division will have available shortly(replicas). The front ones aren't as wide as the original STi pieces, but they still do a hell of a job keeping stuff off the underside of the car as well as the sides of the front fenders and rear bumper.

I would have liked to have gotten originals, but there's no way I'm forking out that kind of money when I got these at probably less then a quarter of the price.

Sorry for the bad pic.

Question

Shik,
Where did you purchase your mudflaps? I like the looks of them. How much did they cost you?
