Hello All,

My 2007 GXP had mud guards on it when I purchased it from the previous owner. I am pretty sure they aren't the OEM parts the dealers put on. They look pretty good to me and are very flexible.

Alas I accidentally ripped a small piece of the rear passenger side flap last summer by running over debris that fell off somebody's truck. So I need replacements. I looked at the mud guards on the car and could not find any obvious branding.

Has anybody tried these mud guards (I think the ones on the car looks similar) :

and these

I bought some RedHound rears off of eBay to replace the rears on the car but do not like the hard plastic.

What are other forum members using since the OEM mud guards are few and far between?

You get what you pay for $15.00 cheap ,ill fitting junk per the reviews there are still OEM sets out there you just have to be patient and look they do pop up from time to time .I picked up a spare set from a dealer who was closing out his inventory of left over Solstice parts last fall . I personally like the hard plastic OEM ones the bottom of the rears got scraped up over time and all I had to do was take some 800 grit sand paper and clean up the bottoms ,some Wizards Black Renu and they look as good as new .

I worry about hitting speed bumps. There's a half dozen on my daily commute.
If you don't "speed" over the bumps you'll have nothing to worry about . I've had mine on for 8 years now with the only issue being steep driveways and the OEM ones are so well made that they hold up ,again a clean up with some sandpaper at the bottoms and a little Wizards Black Renu and they look great again . The other thing to consider is the cost of touching up the chips which are inevitable if you run your car without them . I also added a set of custom made chip guards in front of my rear wheels another area where the cars are prone to get chips .

so... are there any better/wider mud flaps that fit our cars? oh somuch gets by these...be nice if there were some "soft" extensions that could go on them for some added protection.
