Hey guys and gals, I'm interested in getting the mud flaps/guards for my super white but was wondering if they are automatic car wash friendly? Are they so low that I will have problems with the wheel railing at the car wash or will they possibly get damaged? I live in new york city and don't really have the option of washing the car myself. I'm forced to go to a car wash.

Thanks in advance.

I have the mud flaps, scion doesn't make them for some reason. The ones that I got off of eBay are fairly hard and rather small and stubby. When the box came, I thought they screwed me by selling me only 2 rather then all 4, but all 4 were intact in the tiny box. Small car small flaps, makes sense. I think the antenna would come off before these guys, besides they are so low to the ground, doubt there will be much rotational action down there!

And here I am more worried about my radio antenna. I actually remove mine when I take it thru the car wash. I'd think the mudflaps wouldn't be a problem. Most use at least 3 screws to mount and with the size that's really secure. I'd be more worried about the spoiler ripping off if you had one :)

Against my better judgement I'm forced to use a drag and thrash car wash in winter. No problems to date, but the antenna gets flipped up by the roof brushes at any of the local car washes and the wheel covers have some minor scuffs and scrapes that I can't attribute to anything else. The only alternativeis a dirty car.

I use a self-wash with the pressure washer, or I had wash mine, in the summer.
