I've requested mudflaps to be fitted by the VW dealership that is supplying my car. Total cost for supply and fit is £160. I'm hoping they will look right on the car as the wheel arches and lower door area are black plastic also. I agree that 'elephant ears' size wouldn't look right, but the trade-off for them not being unsightly might be that they don't stop as much of the stone chip and mud splattering as oversize ones would. Hopefully VW have got the compromise right.
