Yes but you'll have to bear with me as I'm working unsociable hours this week. This might help in the meantime.



It's a bit on the dark side round the wheels.

I can kind of see it. Looks good! I'll just have to wait until mine come in to see it looks. Do you think it helps with the look at all?

Some mud flaps are eithe too small to be any use or too big and look cobbled up. I think these are just right. Did you see the fitting notes?

In my experience, they reduce mud getting slung up the doors but the back of the car still gets filthy in seconds. I think a mighty big vortex exists there!

I feel like it keeps the lower part of the front doors clean. Before I had them, after a wash the lower part (black plastic) got really dirty just driving home.

I’ve added the fitting instructions to the tech section if somebody wants to have a go.

There are a few threads on Mud Flaps but I'll put a comment on this one!

I put on my winter tires this October and also added Front & Rear Mud Guards.
Based on the mazdashop.ca website under CX-3 Accessories, the Front & Rear Mud Guards cost $228.00 CAD with installation.

I bought the same parts (as far as I can tell they are identical other than the fasteners) from Amazon.ca and it cost me:
$23.46 CAD (Mud Guards, Front & Rear) + $19.54 CAD (Retainer Clips Kit with Removal Tools).
Total: $43 CAD
Basically took me 30 minutes to put on all 4.

Here are the parts I purchased:
  1. Weigesi Mudguard Splash Guards Mud Flaps 4pcs Front and Rear for Mazda CX-3 2016-2018 - 31uX2kE6PXL._AC_.jpg
  2. Car Retainer Clips Kit - 711-caudRgL._AC_SL1200_.jpg
I have not put them through snow or mud yet but they hold on secure with no problem at highway speeds. Will provide an update if any issues.

Oh and I forgot, here is a photo of the final install. They look like they could be original equipment to me.
