Front and rear mudflaps are not fitted as standard on the new A4, the dealer has quoted me 170 to fit them. At the moment I'm swaying towards not having mudflaps fitted. Out of interest, what have other new A4 owners done (or going to do) - mudflaps or no mudflaps?

I didn't bother. On previous cars they fell off after a couple of years anyway. Heavy flooding (which we seem to have had more of:mad:) seems to take its toll.

I agree with all of the other messages, I have always fitted mudflaps to my cars but the B8 looks awful with them on - they can't have been designed for the car as they are ugly!!!!!

I agree and didn't get mudflaps fitted, it looks better without them.

I have to be part of the 'anti-Mud Flap camp' - I really do not see what the point is for everyday driving. Of cars that I have seen with them on, they still get splashes of mud up he side of the doors, they seem not to reduce spray and far more important on a cosmetic front with the new A4 being a curvy, yet aggressive and mean looking car, mud flaps just takes away from all of that and distracts from the sexy alloy's from the side. :drive:

I didn't have them on the previous A4 and I haven't got them on the new one.
