450 Mud Flaps
They stop a lot of mud flying up the side of your car.
Many thanks to Chris Allen for providing these pictures.

This is what you get per pack, one plastic mudflap and three fixings.
Look at the forward section of the rear arch, this is where they attach.
Underneath you will see two predrilled holes used for fixing the flaps.
Slide the top clip under the existing arch and push up into place.
Push one of the plastic inserts into the top hole of the mudflap.
Insert a plastic peg into them and push all the way in.
Push the two inserts through the mudflap and into the holes.
Fasten the inserts by pushing the plastic pegs into the centre until the head is flush.
The mudflap will now be securely fitted, do the other side.
Front Mud Flaps?
Thanks to Blackdog for the info.
The cabrio mud flaps are longer in length and fit perfectly in the predrilled holes at the front edge
of the rear wheelarch on the cabrio. For the rear edge of the front wheelarch, the coupe spoilers
will fit once some holes are drilled. The cabrio spoilers will NOT fit at the front as they are too long.
So, if you get some coupe mud flaps, they fit on the front arch too.
Thanks to Edward K for the info.
I recommend cutting the flat tongue off the mudflap, just above the top fixing hole. Otherwise you have to pry open a gap between the bodywork to insert the tongue, thereby creating a gap for water and mud to get in. Three rivets is more than enough to hold the mud flap in place.
