Finally installed the mud guards I ordered from eBay! Not 100% perfect fitment, but pretty good for $30. Thoughts?

I've always been a fan of the mudguards.

They'll look alot better when you're paint matched.

Looks not bad for the price, they still seem to follow the molding contouring well. They just bolt right on in stock holes? I agree that painting them would give them a nicer look so they don't look like they cost $30
I'm actually a fan of the bare plastic. Also, they screw in to only a few of the existing holes. For example, the stock trim in the front is held on with 3 screws on the face, and 1 underneath. These bolt in to 2 of those holes, and one underneath. They're really good for the price. Obviously, I would prefer OEM Toyota Altezza guards, but those are impossible to find, and they're expensive.

To each it's own, I feel it.

If it was me though, I'd color match, then put weather stripping around it.

I had rep eBay side strakes on my S2000. The gaskets made them look OEM and 1000% better fitment.

It's not that bad for its price, it looks nice. Tbh, I am not a fan of mudguards on car, I guess we all have different preferences.

Just to let you know, THOSE ARE OEM! So you actually got a great deal at $30. And like everyone has suggested, they would definitely look a lot better if you paint matched them. I used to have a pair myself, well I actually still have them but not on the car. Unfortunately they got trashed from being low.
