Yay.

I would leave them. They enhance the look more IMO.

BTW, technically they aren't supposed to be called mud guards since the Z does not belong in the mud. :lol: More like pebble/rock/stuff guard.

Remove them from one side of the Z and see which you prefer. Once they have been one the car for a while it will be difficult to remove them due to discoloration and etching around where they are installed.

I prefer them removed.

Yay. IMHO they look better than without. Plus they probably prevent a lot of rock / debris damage to the rocker panels.

So I say unless you are installing a body kit I would leave them. The car looks naked without them.

+1 Keep them on unless you're going to do a body kit with side skirts and a full rear.

I removed them - one of the first things I did when I got the car. I think it looks a ton better - they look like an after thought.

I've never taken mine off, but I have seen a few cars with lips and side skirts. The rear mud guards make the whole design look better if you don't get rear spoilers as well.

I believe the official name from Nissan is splash guard

Well said. I like them on. People who don't know any better seem to think I have a bodykit on. :dunno: :doh:

They are easy to remove, and to put back on if needed. Just a few screws, which should be put back in the holes if you choose to remove the splash guard.

I had them on the CS but not the UY. I notice the car stayed alot cleaner with them on. So I ordered them for the UY and they are on.

nice timing

im thinking about fitting the mud flaps now too, so my recommendation would be leave them on

though im thinking of just fitting the fronts, i dont like the rears, they hang down too much, whereas the fronts complete the curved drop look of the skirts
