    Guys

    For older cars - i.e. my W209 CLK55, where would be a good place to source these?

    Cheers

    Dealer . Although I'm not sure the amg models can have them due to the bodykit

    I am still looking for front mud flaps.
    I got a pair for the rear from e-bay :thumb:

    However my dealer advises me that they cannot source any mudflaps for my w209 and they are now discontinued:mad:

    Try searching for Schmutzfänger hinten clk mercedes in google…..

    Literally the German for mud flaps, rear, etc. And the German for genuine is original

    I've been pondering whether to get mudflaps. But do they really do anything useful?

    You do get reduced spray of mud and crap on the car but your car won't look at good with them on.

    Got the original MB mudflaps on my CLK (non AMG), they're quite small and not really noticeable at all on dark colours and they do help stop the front wheels flicking stones and road muck directly onto the lower door areas/rear bumper. Try the US sites?

    That the problem I have, the front wheels are flicking up stones.

    I will search the US sites now.
    The German site does seem to be OK on the face of it.

    Don't think mudflaps on an AMG is gonna be the best look!

    If they're of reasonable quality I'd like some on my wagon - the crud that covers the rear is a real pain on an estate.

    Being a black car with a large overhang, the look would be ok.

    Can't find any though, so I'd be open to suggestions.

    Mercedes mudflaps are made in England by hitech, they have a website where you can order, although I think the only AMG mudflaps out there are for W204 (which always seem to be AMGs)

    Does appear to be rather difficult to find AMG mudflaps.
    I shall keep searching........
