Given how dirty the back end of the mini gets, does anyone know whether mudflaps make any difference?

Thanks!

No!!! :( I decided on mudflaps since there's a lot of dirt roads over here. And I can honestly say the rear-end of my car still gets as dirty as if it had been on the Cotswolds Run :mad: :) :D :p

They probably help a bit with preventing flying stones from hitting the bodywork too much. But they don't stop the rear from getting messy :rolleyes:

Maybe flexible rubber type flaps would help. But the official MINI ones are kind of rigid and blend in with plastic trim. I haven't seen anyone with anything but "official" flaps :)
