Well, now I just have to wait 2 months for my new BFF :)
In the meantime, I am about to order a set of 4 pcs of mud flaps through an Ebay seller.

Have anyone of your guys tried to mount these? It is the original ones.

Hi there,

the mud flaps are a bit of a pig to get on - front not too bad, but rears - need to jack up and take wheels off in order to make room for drilling a couple of 5mm holes and then pop riveting in place, Kit came with 6 rivets for 2 fronts, same for rears - you'll need to get a pop riveting tool - about 3-4 quid from the usual suspects(Amazon/Ebay) Upside is they do look quite good.

Thanks for your good description - it's nice to know what to expect.

Easy to find on eBay and listed as genuine Citroen. At over £30 per pair I don't doubt they are genuine but approaching £65 plus the install effort is a lot to avoid a bit of mud up the sides.

For some of us it isn't just to avoid mud and small stones up the sides when driving stock car to the bakery. It's also a matter of design og look of the car. Personally I think it looks great with the flaps.

Which they don't in fact they are pretty useless.

I was hoping they would be effective but they aren't but I bought mine for style as well and I agree with you they finish off the car nicely.

Don't suppose you could provide a photo?

This is how it came back from the dealers after it's 1st service but that's another story. I know all this mud wouldn't have been stopped by the mudflaps but I feel they are just for looks not practicality.

Probably not the best picture but I do feel they finish the car off nicely.

They badly scratched thr black sill below the drivers door. I do beleive it was a conspiracy between the mechanic and delivery driver to hide it.
It didn't work and the head of service was very appologetic and is replacing it free of charge.

I'm hoping they will cut down some of the muck kicked up by the wheels, especially at the rear.

Pretty easy to fit, so long as you have a pop riveter. I took each wheel off for ease & to clean the inside of the alloys. Probably took 10 minutes a corner.
