    Okay, I don't have the time to be washing my very white Prius every weekend!

    Can anybody recommend a good set of mud guard/flaps I can install?

    Something other than OEM? Haven't really seen many other options and from what I hear, a lot of gunk builds up behind them. I've had OEM ones since pretty much new and I've been with happy with it.

    These will fit a 2021 AWD? I got one of those as well.

    Thanks, I did find an OEM part number so asked a few on-line Toyota parts folks and they said they don't have those....so overseas only makes sense.
    I sent a comment to Toyota on their Toyota Brand Engagement Website telling them it's a huge oversight on their part to not offer mud guards/flaps for AWD cars that are, obviously, for those of us in the snowbelt and got a very kind response so hopefully they'll have them in the US soon. (Shouldn't be a hard thing to do.)

    Dang, they want 60 pounds to ship...with the exchange rate $1.34 to a pound that's still pricey. I'll research the part numbers on EBay.

    Yeah it was a little pricey, but only place you can get OEM, for some reason Toyota will not offer them here.

    Here is something:

    I can't see Hidyho posted, did you try them, if so, how did they work out? I just got a 22 AWD-e, would like to add some.

    Oh yes, got them and they are pretty easy to install. I don't remember if it's the front or rear, but you do have to drill an extra hole which requires removing the wheel. Came with all the hardware.

    Were they the UK factory ones, or some other? I don't see any picture or link in Hidyho's post or your quoted reply to them. If they're not the UK ones, do you have a working link/site for them?
