    Morning Cutters, just looking for some real feedback on mudflap you have used and would recommend.

    I have now ordered a set of spacers for the standard 666m's until I can decide on what rims to go for. But as a result I'll need to fit the stone chip protection (mudflap).

    what do you guys recommend based on look and quality?

    Thanks folks :thumbsup:

    I've got the AP Design carbon flaps (front and rear) and they definitely help with reducing dirt down the sides. Look nice and fairly subtle too. One point I will I will make which can be seen as a positive or negative is that because they are carbon you can sometimes hear them doing their job.

    For reference mine has 15mm spacers all round :)

    As above, fit perfectly, take a few minutes to do and they’re quite discrete

    do you see much chipping on rear arches? were the easy enough to fit? I know the fronts are a piece of piss but the rears look to need spacing forward is that right?

    The rears come with a spacer to bring them flush with the arches. Really easy to fit :)

    I know the front pic up on poppers already in the arch liners, are the rears the same or do they require a few new holes to be drilled in?

    The rears are the same. No holes need to be drilled.

    The rears use two of the screws that hold the arch liner on.

    As above the rears come with spacers and use existing holes so very easy. I really don’t like the shape of their fronts though.

    sounds like a winner, did you reshape the fronts or are they as supplied.

    Certainly helps the fact its against the black, but man what a motor! very nice. what spacers have you fitted 15mm on rear what about front?

    top level of aggression mate, the matt black looks mean! (bet its a nightmare to keep clean though! as my white is lol)

    I made my own fronts when I got the car, some day I’ll transfer the design to carbon, the AP ones just don’t look right to me.

    Agreed - I think the fronts need to taper in more at the top.

    Obviously 2ft away you can see them but does anyone really get that close other than you? And don’t forget online pictures are generally zoomed in.
