Did you install them yourself? How hard was it? How long did it take? Are these the OEM factory splash guards? Looks great!

Nice too bad they don't have factory flaps for the sport trim. On that note, not to hijack your thread but... Is anyone else running these Rally Armor flaps?

Yes - I was able to install them myself... I did not use the clips on the drivers side as the access was too limited... just the screw driven through the black plastic wheel well cover. On the passenger side I was able to reach in behind the black plastic wheel well cover and run the screws into the clips... Don't know how Honda intended for the mechanic to reach up into the drivers side wheel well to use the clips??? Had to drill new holes on the bottom of the back wheel well covers for the pop-in fasteners... so you do need a drill motor and the proper size drill bit.

Attachment front and back took about 15-minutes...

Yes - these are from Honda...

Yes, the Honda splash guards are highly recommended. They do the job and look nice on the Fit.

was never a fan of mud flaps/splash guards. neither of my WRX runs them nor my Golf-R or GK for that matter.. it just makes the car look cheap and it's barely functional. well, dem armor flaps are probably functional but ur car aint a faking pickup truck!

​​​​​​"2016 Fit EX CVT (Bought for Wife)" You're killing me bro. As always thank you for your unabashed and unsolicited opinions. As I've already made clear on this forum, I decided long ago never to walk in anyone's shadow; if I fail, if I succeed, at least I lived as I believe...

hey iím just posting to let u folks know wat car guys like me think about rally mud flaps and for those considering to see things from another angle before (or after in ur case) purchase. it doesnít matter wat i think is a bunch of bs.. cause u know u like to take things a bit out of bounds.

on my cars i only do the least amt of mods that have meaning. rally mud flaps is more of a hummmm i only have a little money to spend.. wat can i do to my street car....type of decoration da car doesnt need. youll understand once u put da thing on and get chuckled by folks behind u. yep donít be dat guy..

da smaller oem looking ones are passable i thinks. but i still think it makes da car look cheap mainly because it is unpainted. cars in da lower trims tend to come with body parts dat are unpainted.. so why emphasize. and from my experience with car dat came with painted splash guards, not very functional. just as useless as door side moldings.

i think some tweaking may get those factory gaurds to fit. As for these ?"mudflaps"- what has been seen cannot be unseen... -[runsaway]

I like the first set of mud flaps pictured --- and greatly dislike the rally armor flaps.

And since my other car is a F430, what I think cannot be questioned.

I have both front and rear OEM splash guards aka mudflaps on mine.
Yes, they are black but I think they look okay on the white car. They match the rear bumper fake vents and all.
However, once I changed my wheels to ET40 offset and tires to 205 width... the car is being evenly splashed and covered with mud on both sides, so they do not guard much, if any. But they also do not flap, unlike Rally Armor ones, lol.
I had those on my 500 Abarth and the car looked hilarious.
But there are actually a few rally Abarths in real life, so that's okay.

gentlemen .... there's no one "correct way" to mod a car

if someone wants to slap on mud flaps.... who are we to tell them "don't do that". TO EACH THEIR OWN, right?


vegans tell me all the time to stop eating meat .... *chuckle* .... spoiler alert = I still eat meat
I also drink beer excessively
AND, I sometimes leave the water running when I brush my teeth
