It is comical that someone from SoCal talking about the functionality of mud guards/flaps, you will feel differently if you live in the snow belt. While I don't have them on my car because of visual reasons and am lucky enough to not have to deal with snow and ice too often during the winter months, one can not argue against their functionality to protect a vehicle from salt, sand and gravel during the winter.

With that said, I can certainly understand where you are coming from with this. It is just as idiotic as someone from SoCal buying an AWD street car to go AutoX or Time Attack. Those people would be much better served with a light weight RWD or mid-engine vehicle should they have the need to live out their infantile fantasy of being a "racer".

To add, 90+% of the people in SoCal with AWD vehicles will never find themselves in any sort of situation that will need AWD.



Bottom line, live and let live.
