Can't believe no one has said that it's up to you mate.
You're the one who has to see it every day so if you like it, do it. If you don't, then don't. It's not really anyone else's business what you do with your mini, they can only give you an opinion.

i think you need to think hard about what look your actually going for here mate.

your car has the low slung street racer thing going on, which doesnt include mudflaps.

if it was red with white squares on the doors, higher, group2 arches, knobblies, and a cage i would say fit the flaps.

there are plenty of additions and modifications that i like, but as you have said yourself, not many of them work together. dont mis your styles as it will just look a mess. i think your car looks good as it is, its not my style, but what you have done suits it. i think i would just perfect what you have, dont stick anything else to it!

thank you :)
i totally agree with everything you just said :P
BUT i have one or two things that are definitely going on the car which are, these mudflaps or original 70's mud flaps, louvre, some 70's plates and a black and silver GB sticker. as it is satin black I cannot put any stickers on it of another colour as it just would not look right unless they were wight IMPO these are my last of my mods to the cars exterior, i dont think ill be changing the arches yet as these have only been on for about 2 months, i dont think i will personally but we will see as the standard plastic arches may be adequate. :D
i am always looking to improve my mini looks wise, the back end look sweet but the front is missing a few things like a sump guard and possibly some fog lights? something i dont yet :P

i know, totally agree, enjoying your mini is great! someone else enjoying your mini is a plus :)
so I will get determind to do certain things, for example the louvre and mud flaps always had a thing for them, i like badass looking stuff, i always have but i want mine to be a classic at the same time, so there is a centre point where the public need to decide for me LOL

I used to have some of those mud flaps (the mini ones with the leyland badge). Was one of the things I thought would be cool but just never looked right with anything else. Like most people have said your mini is different to most others which is one of the things that make it cool. IMO I don't think those mudflaps suit the look of your car but do what ever you want. I'm sure I can still be one over.
