Mud Flaps
 
I just purchased a 2010 Legacy and I was wondering if mud flaps are hard for an average hubbie to install. In other words, do you know if the holes are already pre-drilled for it? Has anyone done thier own and were there any challenges with it? Thanks!

the holes are already there, just a little tricky to get to. I recomend getting after market mud flaps that actually hang at least 4 inches lower than the body line of the car, congrats! and welcome!

I got the factory guards and I personally wouldn't want them any taller. Yes, they only have about 1" up front, maybe 2" in the back, but I just see anything bigger being a big snow collector come winter.

Just my 2 cents though.

I tried to take the crews out of the holes, but it seems like they just keep spining and do not want to come out. Anybody else have a solution for the way these screws just spin? Thanks.

I've been waiting for these as well... They've been almost ready for a month now. Not that I'm impatient or anything... :spin:

those are some pretty big looking mud flaps...the oem ones do a pretty good job (for how small they are)

Just wondering if anyone know where I can find some good pictures of the OEM mud gaurds installed. The picture on Subaru site doesn't really show enough.

Thanks.

Thanks for the pictures. It they work decently I think they are the perfect size for me.

I would have gotten them if they were the same color as the car. 8p

you could probably have them painted to match pretty cheap. any body shop would be able to match the paint color
