    Dear All,

    I purchased a set of 4 moulded mud flaps off of ebay for my 99 A3. Really impressed fitted the fronts with no issues but the rears are causing a fitting issue. The moulded fitting holes on the flap are located in slightly different places to the holes on the bodywork.I know it is simple more drilling of new holes etc. I was wondering if anyone has bought a set and had similar issues and how they over came the fitting ie did you fit without screwing? did you use alternative screws that are longer than the original used on the bodywork, did you use just clamps etc?

    I know it sounds a simple solution but I dont want to start drilling holes willy nilly in the rear wheel arches!

    Many Thanks
