    @bobcat had a read cheers I think I’ll have to see one in the flesh with mud flaps to make my mind up, I’m sure I will at some point!

    @stu-c agreed my old fiesta ST was a brilliant car but nothing on the RS, had a few chips around the front plate when I bought it I’ve actually touched them in with a black sharpie and the colour match is brilliant.

    @bobcat Ha, i’ll have a look into them i’ve always thought they looked a bit “Chav” but im sick of looking at tiny white marks around my wheel arches and having to spend hours sorting them.

    Had a similar issue on my M3 but that had a tendancy to chip infront of the rear wheels on the actual arch.

    @bobcat Aye it was good run for it, tried it on every type of surface this weekend including a couple of inches of snow! Amazed that it managed 35mpg on the motorway as well. Brilliant car.

    @dogbone hope to see you around at some point, seen a couple of NBs and a frozen white around Wakey so far.

     

    Does anyone elses RS suffer from stone chips behind the tyres? On the rear bumper in the bottom corners and the painted section of side skirt in the front wheel arches? In other words the section that mudflaps would cover up.

    Why did they use a white coloured primer at the factory! ha.
