I love rally style mudflaps. They're practical and nowadays most people don't associate them with rally anyway.
Looks like you might have a similar model SAAB to mine ('83 900 4 door). Does yours have the wide mud flap in front of the rear wheels? I think that was supposed to be some rally thing as well.
On my old Saab - YES!
the swedish word for mudflap is cool:

German word is nifty too!
I haven't considered them for the R53 MINI,
but just now looking and they look alright on this rando car I found...
...looks good I think as well as functional too.
Now I'm considering getting some.
