yes that was the reason I changed it, but regretting now.
I think it is better to go with the UGLY rubber flaps. It might be looking a bit ugly, but it will definitely save your car from looking ugly :evilsmile !!!.
This has become a major irritant for me, when ever I go out the car is getting splashed with mud from some or the other sources. I am forced to wash the car almost daily:cry:.
Now the problem is, where will you get this rubber flaps, I checked with Ramkay last week and they don't have it.
I need one with some extra width as my tyres are of 205 width.
I never had the issue with the brushing. Maybe you must be passing over some monstrous speed breakers.
Try RDC Fiat, they could be having it. If its not available with any Fiat dealer then you may have to get it custom made.
Or try this address in Mumbai. Its a known shop for Fiat spares. They might guide you.

sreedhara_bj's location should tell it all. We live in the speed breaker capital of the world. There are speed breakers here, that can scrape a Tata Safari :A :A. I know of at least one case of a Ford Ikon hitting a speed breaker on Mysore road and, hold your breath, the engine block fell off.
Here in KA, we have this nice habit of putting a speed breaker as soon as a minor accident happens, do not mark it, so that we can have major accidents :firey

Will these be good enough?
Around two years back, when one of the rear mudflaps fell off, I got a set from JC road for Rs.300, which remained strong until I replaced all of them with the molded one about six months back. The "braying" sound coming from the front mudflaps(old) while going over speed-breakers was irritating. Though the JC road stuff didn't have the OEM glossy finish, it was very effective.
I have been using OE flat rubber flaps given during the delivery & now still flat Gloss even after 1+ year. Purpose served at its best ! But the new molded flaps looks perfect but purpose not served to the mark. I remove the rubber flaps once in 6 month ( Can't help !! i love the way the rear looks !! ) ...
If you still have the rubber type flaps & find it getting bent, unscrew & remove it from the body. Wash it properly, wrap it with news paper & use hair blower till the flaps get bit soft. Then place it under the bed for 3-4 days. Flaps will be normal.
Note: It might be difficult to fit the flaps back, Jack up the car & remove the wheel. Screw driver can reach better & screws get better tightened with wheels removed ( easy access in short)
One of the mud flap got rear ended on my drive, and broke. Checked for replacement, however, we may need to ordered all four as a set I believe:confused.
Planning to use feviqwik to stick the plastic part which broke off (holds only one screw of the three), otherwise the plastic is in good shape.
Any other suggestion?
naruf1, Share a pic of the torn flaps, i don't think glue will help on long run. Why dont you try cutting the flap to the shape of OE moulded type & see that helps ..
Believe sticking this joint would do the job.
