I can quite see the point of mudflaps on cars that ride much higher, with much more exposed tyre to fling dirt up - but the e90, especially the M Sport models with lower suspension, have such low ground clearance anyway, I wonder just how much use they are?
I think they are pretty effective.
I live down a muddy lane and the mudflaps certainly keep the sides of the car cleaner - but dont do anything for the rear; but that is what i would expect as the tail gate crud is fine dirt that is deposited from the airflow as opposed to the mud thrown directly from the tyres.
