2012 CTS coupe splash/mud guards DON'T EXIST!
« on: December 02, 2017, 12:12:15 PM »
Just bought one of these and I cannot believe no one makes molded splash guards for these cars.

Someone tell me I am wrong!

 looked and looked, found nothing.

Nope, they don't exist.  Back when I bought my 2013 CTS Coupe I looked around for them as well.  I was told the rear ones for a sedan can be used on the rear of a coupe but I didn't see the point of doing half a job.

Someone on the Cadillacowners forum suggested using these:  https://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=2111
I didn't care for the price for something I would have to paint to match just made me decide to go without.  In the almost 4 years I've discovered I don't really need them.

Good Luck.

Thanks!

I was looking at C7 Vette guards but yeah that price is a problem especially for a shot in the dark.

My car instantly got filthy on what I thought were relatively dry roads on the way home after buying the car. Upon general mud guard searches on ebay looking for something that might work an fit well. I decided to go with some new model Malibu guards. Looks like with some fitting they just might work and fit well. Cheap enough to try anyway. I'll post a pic if I end up using them. Going for the front only at this point.

You could take a look at these. They're supposed to be a fitzall solution.
