Being new to the mk3 club and having recently purchased my grey one which has now had stone chip protection on the front and mirrors as well as a full ceramic coating. My question is which mudflaps to get?
There seem to be a few types available and some genuine Ford ones. I can’t have them too close to the ground as I do park up off road at a few hill climb events I go to.
there is a pretty comprehensive thread or two on here, probably best to have a search back through old threads in RS chat. basically, you can have Bobcat’s style using std Focus flaps if you want a subtle look, or rally armour ones or Rallyflapz, both big flaps. Only real difference is the armour ones do not go all the way up to that little widget of fords on rear arch and leave a gap ( not to my liking) or the rallyflaps which go all the way up to the ford baby flap gizmo and to me look neater. Also available in thin 3mm Kaylan or a bit more robust 4mm non kaylan stuff and half price to boot.
mind the ‘gap’ rally armour
no ‘gap’ rallyflapz in 4mm stuff..
Bob will be along with his smooth OEM flaps any minute..
No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.
Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

part No F1798977 rear, F1722673 front. Personally I think they do a really good job of keeping stone rash down as well as dirt. Also I’ve found they clear all but one speed bump (I avoid it now) that I’ve gone over. I have a ramp from the road onto my drive so I needed them to clear that as well.
