Cool Prodrive Mud Flaps

Anyone looking for Prodrive Mud Flaps. Check this out . And they fit perfectly. I just ordered mine. Although the information states. That they do not fit the 04. The front ones do. And are available, separately. I have been looking for molded flaps that fit; for a long time.Cheaper then Paint repairs. No more stone chips!

http://www.subietech.com

Pictures on Club wrx short cut.

After receiving an Email notification. I returned, to read the posting by.
imprezzed-Jason. I do not understand why
someone would waste my time with the posting listed below?
If you can not afford somthing.Or think it is too expensive.
Please do not waste my time with unrelated comments.
I feel a product that fits perfectly, looks good .And will save
time, and money on paint repairs. Is well worth it.
As Subaru has not made this product available.
I am now able to purchase the molded mud flaps. I have wanted.
I paid about $25,000 for my WRX. $180.00 is not a lot to protect
my investment.The STI rally flaps cost about $600.
The Prodive mud flaps; look, and fit better.
As I live in the sunshine state. The big STI rally flaps,
and Fastline flaps. Would look odd. Like they came off a pickup
truck.

This thread is a link for people who are interest in Prodrive mud Flaps.

Remember the dollar has gone down, and is worth less.Do to devaluation.

I also purchased the trunk liner from subietech.

Note to imprezzed-jason: You need to read the subject line. (Prodrive Mud Flaps)
There is no listing for "yikes" or " 'rents" in webster's, or random
house dictionary.
You just don't get it. The subject is Prodrive mud flaps.
Not gm mud flaps.
Or cars that need to be washed.

Again: This thread is a link for people interested in Prodrive mud flaps.

200 bucks for mud flaps!!!!?!?! yikes man, to each his own, but my 40 dollar molded mudflaps that I bought from a GM store look just as factory. I'll post pics later today. Guess I would rather spend the money on something else. I made my own mudflaps for my old RS for 3.50 and they worked and looked great.

Definitely post the pics - remember, looks are highly subjective - what looks great to you, might make others want to vomit...

wow imprezzed, those flaps look really good. i saw some similar looking ones at Autozone but front and rears would've costed me $25. how much did they cost you again? and what GM model are they for? what do i say when i go to the GM dealership? also, how did you mount them? did you have to drill holes in the bumper or sideskirts? if you could do a how to and maybe post it on here or scooby mods i think a lot of people would appreciate that.

I think you need to chill man, you don't need to justify your spending to me. It's a free country, I can voice my opinion and give others an alternative way of doing something, whether it be cheaper or better. That's what this site is about man. It wasn't a personal hit on you or anything, don't take it so personally.

oh yeah note to cxlifr - it's BELOW, not BELLOW



MRF582 - They are supposed to be for smaller GM vehicles. All I did was drill holes in the mud flap and use mud flap screw clips that most mud flaps use. No holes were drilled in any sheet metal, I just used the existing holes.
Glad to see that there are others with open minds not afraid to DIY

ps I don't have the packaging anymore, so I couldn't tell you what the part number is. Just ask them for small molded mud flaps that should be around 20 dollars or so for two of them.

Well - I am not a big fan of the thin flaps, but those definitely look nicer to me than something like the Fastline flaps... I wanted a more integrated look, though - didn't want to go through the time and effort of modifying the RS set (which would probably mean modifying two sets for me, because I wouldn't get the first one quite right, and would want to try again...) - the Prodrives are molded and fit perfectly - so I went with that (also had the backsides painted, which really looks nice). I actually prefer the prodrives over the stock ones - they are chunky, but they follow the lines of the car - they don't look like an afterthought - they look like they belong there.

Noticed your flaps go very low to the ground - any issues with ice buildup in the slush?

Although they don't look nearly as nice as the prodrive flaps, I have the same fastline flaps on my silver WRX.

fastline flaps also double as great curb feelers

I like the fastline flaps myself. They have a rugged rally look and seem like they would be the most functional.

the rear bumper on the 04s are different at the bottom, the body line indent part is differnet than the 02 03 so when u try fitting them it just doesn't line up right, i tried the 0203 on my 04 when it first came up and it just didn't fit, fronts work fine though

imprezzed: those are the nicest DIY flaps I have seen. Clean look and good fit.

I went with prodrives and have loved them, but I did pay a lot for them. This was one of my first mods to the car and I thought they looked nice, so I throw down the cash.

I got mine from Arnie @subietech. He is great to work with and his install instructions work great. Free plug

cxlifr - It's kind of hard to keep a car clean up here where it snows 5 months out of the year That's clean compared to most cars here.

You're still taking my first post personally, which leads me to believe you want to argue with people on the internet for the fun of it. I don't, life is too short. I was simply stating my opinion on the flaps, which do look good, but are too expensive for my tastes. End of story. Truce alright?

jcwrx - Thanks, I think they turned out good.

Cool Prodrive Mud Flaps

Update:I received the Prodrive Mud Flaps from http://www.subietech.com/ in less then two days. Very easy to install. Kit included aircraft nut plates, and bolts with screw heads. They fit perfectly; and look like original equiptment. Subaru should of installed these from the factory. They look better then expected. Not like an add on, or a do it your self job, or Truck like.
I had expected to have to remove the tires, but only needed to jack up the car.
I turned the front tires to create the room needed
to install the front flaps. And just jacking up the car created enough room to install the rear flaps. Total instalation time was twenty five minutes.
The Prodrive mud Flaps are Very stiff, but pliable. I was considering painting them, but they contrast the tires, the rocker panel, and the color of the car very well.
I feel that anyone looking at the car would think that the car came from the factory with them.
Nothing in life is ever what we expect it to be. This modification
went better then I had expected. And looks and fits better then I had thought it would.
The trunk liner I purchaed fit perfectly: and looks great. Installed it
in less then one minute.
I wish to to thank Arne, at subietech. For importing the Prodrive
Mud Flaps, and the trunk liner. He was great to deal with. And is a standup guy.
