    It appears the molded splash guards are now available...

    My 08 came with splash guards, and I think they look extremely good on my black car. I have pictures in an earlier thread. Search for Splach guards.

    Re: Splash Guards?

    I'm interested in getting molded splash guards. I want to protect my car's paint and also avoid having to wash it so often when the dirt is mostly what's spun up from wet roads. I am already not liking the black water spots I get - mostly low on the front doors, not too bad on the rear end.

    The black splash guards look great on a black car, but I have the light platinum exterior and I think it'll probably look like crap. Anybody else have splash guards on something other than a dark colored (black/blue/cherry) car? Any idea if they will make splash guards in other colors?

    Otherwise do you think it would be practical to have a shop paint the splash guards with matching paint or a similar paint color? From others posts, I recall seeing something like $400.00 minimum for the matching paint. Add the price of the splash guards and you can buy a lot of car washes with that kind of money.

    Re: Splash Guards?

    I purchased the black guards from the dealer. It took me 30 minutes to install on my White Diamond. They look good, almost invisible. Somehow they blend in with the tires. I like them as they do the job...

    Did you have to remove the tires to install?

    Now you've got me wondering! I have a set on order. I assumed they installed with screws into the wheelwell. Why would you have to lift the front of the car?

    A small hole for a screw need to be drilled from the bottom of wheel wells, as my cordless drill was too big I had to lift the front of the car. The back was OK.

    Photos - I am down South in the Southern country, will post pics when I gat back home in a few days time.......
