    ...........can these be fitted if the car has factory running boards on please?. Typically the Audi dealer i spoke to seems to think not due to the '' board'' mountings?. Thanks in advance.

    Well having spoke to the main dealer who i'm getting the car from is insisting there are no part numbers for the F/R mud flaps for a 2018 SQ5?. Any body got the part numbers for them please?.

    There's no SQ5 specific parts, the S-line ones fit.

    No, they fit as per the Audi Instructions, you need to notch the rear plastic, slit the liner to fit some clips, and then drill a hole in the plastic for a push in clip. All in plastic, and unseen, nothing in metal.

    ............well got the car & no mud flaps fitted!!!!:frown new: dealer is insisting they cant get any to fit?. Also when i got home i noticed a small chip in the front screen!!!!. Car has been through the Audi approved 149 point check? & it was mentioned by the checker & apparently they did get a specialist windscreen person out who said they cant do anything with it. This was never mentioned to me when i picked the car up but when i got home i spoke with the dealer & there coming to collect the car for further inspection on Monday, iv told them inspect all you want, but you had better fit a brand new Genuine Audi screen so i will report back on the cars return.

    Really fed up about the mud flaps as car has the running board & due to the fact they have done a load of that **** surface dressing to the roads close to me very time i drive the boards end up covered in loose chippings thrown up from the front tyres !!!.

    I know I have read somewhere that mudflaps aren’t possible if wheels are certain size. So could be that as don’t think they can be fitted on cars with 21” and possibly not 20”.

    Glad they finally tried it and found they fit!

    No idea why Audi have not specified them as SQ5 compatible, given the arch covers they fit onto are the same parts.
