Re: Splash guard pix - per request

What ... you didn't want to pay the extra 125 dollars for those steller splash guards?

I still haven't figured out why dealers try to con people into paying for these things. They put them on and think you just say ok. I guess some people do...

Any chance on a pic of the whole car with them on? :)

The same reason they offer you a surge protector, extended warranty, Monster Cables, etc, when you buy a big screen TV. People making a large purchase tend to want a little extra protection, and $125 isn't too bad a price for those considering they have to pay for the parts and a mechanic to take all 4 wheels off and install them.

I don't mind the look of those at all- they're a lot more subtle than some I've seen.

No problem, Zymurgy, Glad I was able to contirbute.

Cadillac tony, I understand the cost and actually like the splash guards; I just don't like having much of a choice when I find a car on the lot that I really like, as in the case of my CTS. As it was I ended up with a spoiler that is nice but more $$$ than I would have preferred to spend. Add-ons are ok as long as you can agree.

FYI, I picked my baby up in Ocala!

Re: Splash Guards?

My dealer just mailed me a postcard with some options, winter mats and splash guards and the optional 18 polished wheels. I'll pass. The card appears to be a GM card and not just a local dealer item.

Re: Splash Guards?

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.
