Yeh stop a bit of mud going up the side of the car or rub the paint of and have potential rust issues !!, i know what i will be doingnorthernscirocco said:Just been a recent post on here re the damage caused by dealer fitted mudflaps. Had toyed with the idea of them 'till I saw that. :naughty:
Its no so much any drilling etc that causes the damage. It is where the mudflat meets the bodywork, grit gets inbetween and starts abrading the paint causing the damage.lotuss2 said:As I said before, I've had front and rear fitted to mine. The dealer assures me that no drilling of the metal bodywork is involved. They utilise existing screws in the wheel arches, the only other hole drilled is under the rear bumper which is of course plastic. No damage should be done to the car that could entail rusting.
