Does anybody know where to get mud flaps that are color matched to match the color of the car

I'm looking for some too, not necessarily color matched though.

I contacted Chris at rippy auto. Sounds like there aren't any made by GM for the car specifically. I was looking for the same type that I had on my DTS. Black with a white lettered Cadillac script.

I don't need mud flaps...my STS is allergic to gravel roads and anything remotely close to mud :)

Well, mine is as well, however since it is going to see Snow the mud flaps come in really handy in keeping the nasty snow buildup from happening behind each wheel and down the side of the car.
At least that was the case for the previous car I had with flaps.

Very good point, didn't even think about that...

They make them for the SLS which they are molded to the bumpers. However I cannot find the correct gm part number to get them.

To be honest if my DTS didn't come with them I would have never realized how nice it is for the winter and likely wouldn't be considering finding some now.

1BadCadSTS - yet another thing the SLS has that we don't. You mention they aren't molded... I wonder if they are carryover from the Seville / Deville line?

Wow. I guess I misread that post....

I looked pretty hard when my wife bought her 2007 STS (& annually since.) Nobody had the Cadillac script or specific application.

I did contact Chris about this. He is unable to obtain any Chinese market parts.

I found a great resource for mud flaps when I bought a set for my magnum, google "pro-fit splash guards"

They have some OK-looking ones molded for the front but only generics for the rear.

I didn't know they made exact model ones, mine were sold in sets of two to match my car, they look great.

I was able to find a set of new SLS China mud guards and have installed them on my car.
They are molded to front and rear specific, and the rear have a raised "SLS" logo on them but they are really difficult to see.

Overall I think they are a rather subtle addition to the car.

I inspected them as much as possible there was no part number on them.
I found them on a Chinese wholesale site it was a very random find and I was uncertain if I fully trusted the site.

I would recommend if you do buy some that you get a prepaid visa card from somewhere that will cover the balance just in case they are not a trustworthy merchant. It was on aliexpress.com. I wasn't able to find any other SLS parts on there.

This is the link I got them from. They appear to offer discounts for 10 or more purchased so I think they should have some available.
Its a bit under $100 shipped for 1 set of 4.

Have any of you guys looked up WeatherTech? I dont know much about them but on the display I looked at it says "no drill mud flaps"

If you live where it snows, like on the CO front range, you'd be AMAZED how much help even small mudguards like this help.

I'll have to consider these, as some day, I'm moving back there, and I can't imagine the mess I'd have on a white car. Well, any color other than 'champagne', as that's CO dirt color.

Just an FYI

Quick search on the web site I was able to find them for 68.80 shipped.

Ordered them up!

They also have some molded back up cameras to replace the rear license plate lens similar to the CTS camera option, looks really cool but unsure of which one to get!

For those interested the SLS flaps have been doing well. I would say they have prevented some nasty snow buildup and spray down the car. A worthwhile expense in my mind.
