Do the front flaps stop all the crap going in the door step or do they still get dirty?I'm interested to know if they are effective or not?

No, they don't stop the door sills getting filthy. But I imagine they're cleaner than they would be without them in place.

The rears were easy, the springs clips are pretty tough. I expanded them a tad it helped loads.

Thanks for the info. Probably pass on fitting them then + save a bit more onwind resistance and better fuel economy.

Do you think it would cause a noticeable difference? I would be surprised if it did.

Supermegamonkee, I think in a controlled testcase e.g. in a wind tunnel, you may see a small difference. However, if you press the accelerator a bit to hard twice a week, or brake two times too often, this difference is already gone.I am positive that the way you drive has a much larger impact on your consumption than whether or not you have mudflaps.

Ive had two goes at fitting the front mud flaps,your photos are brilliant just one small point though ,when I take out the bottom plastic insert as you stated does the one in the kit go on first against the metalor after the liner is back in place or last, as I notice it is longer than the original one. rear all ok and fitted first time.
