    Mud flaps anyone?

    Anyone put mud flaps on a SB?
    Just wondered if they would reduce spray on a white car but never seen one with the on, or a picture
    on the forum with them on.

    Cheers

    Not with a s-line though due to the sill covers..

    Well worth it on the front at least, in my experience they reduce stone chipping down the lower sides.

    I previously had an 8P Sportback Quattro S-Line, which Audi claimed the mudflaps did NOT fit, however as a friend works for Audi I got a set just to try and they fitted perfectly with no mods and I am very fussy, so when my 8v S3 arrives I will be checking these too.....just saying!! I'll look for a pic and post it up.

    Has the accessory tab just appeared in the configurator? When I was working with my wife to build her car it wasn't there.

    We asked the dealer for mud flaps and he said they cost £170. I now realise that the mud flaps only cost £80.

    When I queried this with the dealer, he says that they are not factory fitted and they charge to fit them? Is that correct, if I use the configurator to build a car and spec mud flaps are they not factory fitted?

    We live in the country. Our roads are often covered in mud.

    I found the following http://www.audi.co.uk/content/dam/au...ries-guide.pdf

    "Protects the underbody, bumpers and rear of the A3 from severe dirt and stone impacts.
    Also reduces spray water* 8P0075111 £54.17 £65.00

    Rear mud flaps. As above* 8P3075101 £54.17 £65.00"

    Can Audi not manufacture mudflaps for s-lines in all models as they must be the biggest sellers yet they never seem to fit.
    V8 baby... oh yeah

    It is the same for most manufacturers that have cover sills on there cars, our Mazda 2 Sport was the same. I think they assume that because you have chosen a more 'sporty' design you wouldn't want mudflaps fitted...
