They don't stop a whole lot of mud, but they do help and I'm sure my doors are cleaner since I fitted them. The clips are a bit fiddly, few swear words will be said, I found opening them up very slightly with a screwdriver made them slip on easier.

This pic might help show how low they are, speed bumps shouldn't be an issue.

I think they make the car look a little wider and lower from behind, which I like. They do keep dirt off the door (to and extent) despite their small size. I do wish the were slightly bigger.

As has been said, the metal clips were ridiculous and I too found that opening them up very slightly with a screw driver helped.

I fitted mine myself and used a pair of duckbill pliers on the clips. Slightly opened them up first, one at a time, placed in position and started to engage with a twist of a flat blade screwdriver in the gap behind and then put the tip of the duckbills in the gap and opened them up to push the clips home. I found the rubber plugs a waste of time as it was impossible to make them look neat. I also found that on the rear LH one that one of the original screws on the bottom was not long enough and had to find a longer one and penny washer in my shed

I am considering adding them as well. How do you like them?
I just love them....I didn't put them on my other previous Minis......I got them installed on my F56 2015....I find here in Canada it helps to decrease the spray from the back wheels spraying up on the rear window. This comes in handy during the Winter months (and rainy months to reduce the water) to helps reduce the salt spray constantly covering up the rear window. Helps to reduce the wear and tear of my rear wiper with the mud flaps installed. :)

The Mini flaps are just that - mini, except in price. But they make your Mini look even better.

Just get some.

hi no I had mud flaps on both my clubman's and now I
put them on my 2014 cooper s and they are ok. I drive
over a lot of humps here in st Helens the home of the
hump and everything's fine. just put them on yourself
as its a lot cheaper than the dealers. they do stop a lot
of the crap going up the side so they are worth it.

Booked in to have them fitted on Friday. It's too cold and wet to be on my knees on the driveway.
Fitting cost £82 plus vat which doesn't seem excessive.
Blimey my local Dealer quoted well over a £100 to fit! Who was that quote from if you don't mind me asking.

Did enquire with a local Independent who's very active on Facebook but they don't seem bothered to quote me.

Would have a go myself but not the best time of year to be outside and I have a sloping drive which isn't ideal if you need the wheels off.

Regards Bob
