    Hello all,

    Looking for a full set of genuine mud flaps for a 7th Generation accord. Anyone know of where to get some? I've checked ebay, but only find the rears so far, and its too much for me to buy directly from the dealers but I do want them to be OEM and not some aftermarket rip off.

    Accords don't have mud flaps at the front?

    I'm confused. They are listed as an option for all FL 7th Generation, except Type-S.

    Typical, mine has never had them on, I don't have front or rear ones, although, I have just now ordered those rear ones from ebay, so just need the front ones now. Il edit my original post to reflect this

    Type-S has side skirts and rear bumper lip so the genuine flaps won't sit properly.

    TBH mud-flaps are a waste of time and with time they damage the paint with constant rubbing and it hardly protect the paint from mud. My advise you don't want mud on your car stick to non muddy roads.:Wink: and they look ghastly too:spiteful:

    LOL. interesting thread.
    I went for a set of mudflaps as I really do think they work. I had a Civic coupe with them on and drive up and down the motorway for 5 years on a daily commute. My mate also had the same car with no mudflaps and in only a year the side skirts on his coupe was littered in stone chips .

    I think they do work but also they do need to be cared for - i.e remove them and clean behind and polish the surfaces of the paint work it covers and then re-install them. I suppose that's abit much for some people. The Blue Arosa I owned had them and the side sills were really clean and stone chip free

    I managed to find a second hand set of the fronts on ebay my sheer luck, I was intending to buy the fronts from Honda though - The rears I got from ebay here

    There are some justifiable arguments against mudflaps.
    They can erode some paintwork at the contact points on the car, detract from the smooth lines of the Accord and decrease MPG.

    However, I detest the muddy splashes and paintchips that can happen without them. So my choice is to have them.
    They are like Marmite. some love them, others hate them.

    My recommendation, is that if you do fit them, use Honda ones. The fit is perfect and the you don't need to worry about the quality.

    However, you're still winning by miles. :blush:
