Malibu Mud Flaps

I was wondering if anyone with a new 2013 Malibu has OEM mud flaps that could post a pic, I would appreciate it. I would like to see what the car looks like with them on.

I live on a gravel road and think that I need to have something on there to protect from rocks hitting that fender.

Thanks,
Pete

Thanks,

I am just about to put the car on the road so you are actually not late. Mine is black, so I think that will hide them even further.

Thanks for posting,
Peter

Mines white diamond and having the 19" tires, the splash guards are worth every penny and work as designed.

If I may I would like to make another alternative to Yosemite Sam mud flaps.

I hate mud flaps especially on a car as nice looking as the White Diamond LTZ. I can recommend this product I have it on my 1991 Silverado with big tires and not a scratch, stone chip or dent on the painted surface. I also have it on the rear of my new 2013 Malibu. Find a dealer in your area and check it out. They are invisible and definitely protect the paint. Also, I so not work for 3M.

I am the person my parents warned me about!!:eek

Re: Malibu Mud Flaps

Here is a picture of my truck with the plastic shield installed under the rubber side molding from front wheel to back bumper.
You see how the bottom of the truck rolls under so the tires can throw rocks up against the paint and ruin a very expensive paint job.
This is how much I trust 3M plastic shield over mud flaps. (click on thumbnail for larger view)

I think the mud flaps would look great if you had them painted to match the body color.

Re: Malibu Mud Flaps

I actually like the functionality, not so much the look. I'll tell you one thing for sure, the 19" tires really thru crap all over the car prior to puting them on. The 3m plastic sheilds would not alleviate that.

Havent notice gravel or rock before or after.
