Was on the phone today with the salesman who im buying the 3008 from, while on the phone I said when the new car comes I want Mudflaps fitted, there was a ok then a hold on CHECKING, waiting then he said yea erm they dont do front mudflaps on rear ones and that will be £160 .... Awkward silence I then proceeded to inform him to try more like £80 for full set of front and back he said he'd get back to me.

Still hasn't yet.

Some dealers certainly try it on.

A while ago I went to my local dealership and asked for a quote to fit the mudflats. I was quoted a total of £280 for the parts and 2 hours labour for fitting which was a total ripoff so I didn't bother.

Later I went to a local garage that specialises in repair/servicing of Peugeot vehicles. They supplied original Peugeot mudflats and charged 1 hour labour. The total cost was £130.

I'm glad I had them fitted and feel it was money well spent. I just wish I had thought about them when negotiating the vehicle purchase.

I've got that set on order, did you have to take the wheels of to fit?
When I fitted the front ones, i just turned the steering to give me maximum access. According to the basic instructions (in German as well :confused:), you are told to drill a hole for the central screw into the edge of the wheel arch. I didn’t fancy doing that as I am sure it would mess up the corrosion warranty so I left it out. Used the other fixings on the front and applied some ‘hot glue’ on the edge where the mud flap touched the inner wheel liner. They are quite solid.
The rear ones dont require any holes to be drilled and use the existing fixings on the car. I managed to remove and refit the central screw using just a torx bit and a spanner. A bit fiddly but doable.

Ok turn up for the books, got told I would get a full set of mudflaps yes Front and Rear supplied and fitted, £70 for flaps and Zero for Labour they are saying as the car hasnt even been built yet they would fit them as the car arrives to the dealership as with all the other cleans protections and checks they do before handing over the car.

So i'd say bonus, so thats Zero labour on the flaps a Full tank of fuel and the bag of cleaning kit ... I'm happy.

Now if only they would give me a Build date ;)
