    Usually I think all cars look better with mud guards. What do you think about them on the prius?

    There's reasons they don't come standard. I'd fugedaboutit.

    They were standard on the Gen 2 and Gen 4. They left it out for Gen 3. (This is Canadian spec. US spec never had it as standard equipment).

    Can't say it improves the looks of the car, except that it keeps it cleaner longer.

    I have 1 car with the oem mud flaps.....after a few days, you won't even notice them. All you'll see is a prius.

    I noticed the US mud flaps are actually extremely small, probably won't even notice them!

    mmhmm. I got the "Euro" ones from the PC shop. They're longer (and it bit more conspicuous) but they do the job of keeping the spray zone to a minimum.

    I always equip my cars with mud flaps as it helps save the bodywork. When I recently purchased my 2011 Prius Four it didn't have them but I found a full set of 4 OEM for $66 from a Toyota dealer. I kinda like the way they look. :)
