    IMHO i feel that these flaps spoils the sporty look of the car,still one wants to have them on,can put only two in front as i have done the same for my black ogre..

    Good joke with 100% reality.
  7. I drove my punto initially without mud flaps,the dealer did not had it in stock when i purchased the car. Later he called me and i got them installed. Personally i feel that Punto looks great without mudflaps. The OE mudflaps like vijay says, is bit on the truck side. The most horrifying fact in using mudflaps is that, dirt might accumulate coupled with moisture can lead to rust and paint chipping off. When i got them removed during wheel balancing, i saw paint from the front wheel arch chipping out :(

    I have the Mudflap from Fortune, as OE when i took the punto, It was a complimentary and am fine with it as the washer cleans it everyday morning, special instruction to clean the wheel caps and the mudflaps thoroughly with water so that the dirt is not accumulated.

    Better shown with pictures, I hate to see it :sadblue
    you can also see the dents done to the inner part and also a hole drilled for fitting the screws.

    Thinking of restoring back the originality.
