  • Mud Flaps for the Astra VXR

    I've seen a vxr with mud flaps on in the July Total Vauxhall mag. I've been told this can't be done due to having 19" wheels and the side skirts. Has anyone else tried this.

    If you get a set of Astra G (Mk4) Mudflaps, you can use these as they are sort of 'Universal' & screw them into the plastic wheel arch linners.
    These are also the same mudflaps for Vectra B from 1995-1999

    I have a set going on my sporthatch very soon & that has 18" alloys & the XP kit inc sideskirts.

    I Know a few people with the Astra H that have done this, hope this helps

      With the Astra G flaps, you need to trim the reinforcing ribs on the flaps off with a sharp knife as the clearance is VERY little....can be done though. Our Stevie has them on his Astra H TT with 19s.....looks the dawgs danglies

          Not the best of pics to show the flaps seeing as its from the front, but you can just make them out.

                      Where's everyone found to be the cheapest for the Vauxhall mudflaps? I need a set for my cars and Lynns Astra, much cheapness

                          They don't make em for a lot of the newer cars. Even the Corsa C didn't have sets available, except for the poverty spec ones without side skirts.

                          I'm sure you could get the MK4 Astra ones to fit though?

                            With some judicious cutting and moulding the mk4 'flaps will fit almost any Vauxhall! Kerr&Smith is where I get mine....about £36 a set of four iirc
