meh- the flaps in my opinion (notice i said my opinion) are not wide enough nor do they run up the sides high enough......they look good/matching the body lines-however----------

lots of rain recently here in tampa,
and on a black car- the road "stuff" shows up easy.....
and the factory "mud flaps" are not cutting it....

i guess as far as i can tell- they keep the rocks from coming right out and hitting the body of the car..... but the spray/mist/sand just seem to flow right around the guards and end up on the body of the car...
i know in a perfect world the flaps would keep the car mostly clean-
but so far- i am not finding the factory flaps doing their job like they should be.....

Well, I installed mine a couple of weeks ago... It's rainy season here in Panama (from March to December, basically) and the results show already. They aren't perfect by any means, but mine do keep those huge mud splatters from appearing. It's much cleaner now after all the thunderstorms...

Sad to hear they're not cutting it for you.

my OEM front splash guards made a huge difference for me. Bummer they aren't working for you. I guess FL rain is different than CA rain. Lol. :)
