    Should I Or Not??

    Just cleaned the new car, and it does look good now..
    Does the A3 look crap with mudflaps?? I'm used to Volvo's and most of they do have mudflaps, but i haven't seen any A3's with them??

    So what do they look like??
    Any views welcome..

    Also looking for good mobile phone fitter in the Basingstoke area?
    Thanks

    It's down to personal taste. Years ago I bought a used Ford Escort which had them fitted, and promptly ripped them off because I felt they spoilt the look, especially with nice alloy wheels. Would probably do the same if they were on my A3.

    I saw an A3 on the road the other week with them on, didn't look very good As Ben says though, its all down to personal taste, I certainly wouldn't want them on my car though.

    My parents A3 (silver'ish) has them and they look good. Not sure how they would look on a black car, so i haven't bothered.

    The other thing is after driving around this week after the snow, the car was covered in crap, but wasn't too bad down the sides or on the rear bumper.

    I'll save the 60 quid and spend it on something else...
    Cheers for the views..

    I think a black car is the only one that might get away with these. I suppose you could always remove them if your not keen.

    I always have them on all cars. I just think it saves so much crap from hitting the paintwork?

    I'd post a pic but imageshack, that I usually use, seems to be having a problem - any other hosting sites that you guys use??
