NCbeast;
Although Line-x is the more common brand, I recall seeing another company's system that could color match any OEM color. Google away! I think the all white would add to the look of your ride but as you know if the colors are slightly off or fade too quickly, it will make it look like some of the General Motor's cars of 80's

To those of you that have installed them yourself:
#1...Do you have to remove the wheels to gain "working room" to install them?
#2...Did you use Hyundai brand, or an after market?

Thanks...Cheers..

My SF came with them but having installed them on my Tucson:

1) I initially used an L-shaped screwdriver. My wrist/fingers hurt after just one - ended up taking off the wheels. So much easier.

2) OEM (Hyundai) branded mudguards look more, well... OEM. They wrap around the front fender, rocker panel and rear bumper. Naturally you can install aftermarket but they may not look as nice.

The fronts can be done by simply turning the wheels, which made it nice. The rears I was able to do wihout removing the wheels. It was a bit of pain, but less of a pain then removing the wheels.

I bought the Hyundai ones from the delaler. They had emailed me a $20 off an accesory coupon, which made the price comparable to what I was seeing online.

One thing I ran into on the fronts. They have four holes instead of the 3 the rears have. There were only 3 screws to remove from the car. There didn't appear to be a threaded hole where the 4th mounting hole was, so I don't have a screw there. The guards are rock solid, so I'm not concerned about it.

Purchased OEM ones via Eb@y. So issues with fronts, rear ones had to use an L shaped screw driver.

Have to say, I was concerned with how small these splash guards were, but here in Minnesota after a few snow storms, they actually do a really good job of keeping the snow off the vehicle. I am glad that I put them on!

2012 Santa Fe Splash Guards/Mud Guards

I just brought home a new 2012 Santa Fe Limited. The dealer wanted $45 a pair for the splash guards and I see I can get OEM for half that on Ebay or Amazon. Has anyone looked at the Powerflow #6401 "exact fit" to compare? Amazon has them for $15 a pair.

Thanks

I went with dealer installed mud guardsa and although small, they look great and do keep some debris off of the vehicle. Definatelt reccomend for the small investment.

Alright, I couldn't hold it any longer. Can someone please change "Spalsh" to "Splash"? Thanks!
