    new owner and member

    just got a 2016 Veloster after trading in a 2012 Kia Soul+. before that i went thru 2 Hyundai Tiburons so this is the 3rd forum i now belong to. after having the Soul, this car is unbelievably slow, like horribly slow, as in cant get out of its own way slow. do i care? hell no. me and wife love this thing. she loved her Soul, i liked the Tibs and this car seems to offer the best of both so we have no complaints. i found OEM mudflaps on Ebay for cheap and was wondering if anyone has put a set on and how difficult they are to do so. im kinda old and just dont want to strain, struggle and go crazy trying to get them on myself. working on cars just isnt "fun" anymore!

    I have the OEM mud flaps for the Turbo, they were very simple to put on. No need to remove the tires.

    welcome to the club!

    the rear muflaps are a bit easier if you remove the wheel. i used an S shaped screw driver to put them on with the wheels on.
