I personally like the clean lines of the MDX w/o external additions such as Fender Flares. Of course this is a matter of personal opinion; with each to his/her own. Since the car comes with the front flaps, I believe that rear flaps compliments the total look and provides adequate protection.
Fender flares are more for cosmetic appearance. They are not much for any protection and are only just over an inch thick.
The rear mud flaps or guards are for the protection of spraying muds and rocks. They are exactly the same as those in the fronts, both functional and appearance. They are much cheaper, about 10% of the former.
The rear guards will help but are to short to do a lot of good. This has been discussed in previous threads.
The fender flares will help with the parking lot dings, but not sure how they will hold up under a real smack.
The fender flare is not as strong as other car makers. I scratched mine by just touching the wood frame of the garage door. Also, I do not think it will help on preventing parking lot dings which usually happened on the doors. It may prevent dings on the fenders

But you're right, the flares are cosmetic, whereas the mud flaps have a purpose; they protect the forward portion of the rear quarter panel (not long enough to help out the back). Get'em, they're essential...
I am planing to buy roof rack for my MDX 2018. I have base model.
Intend to buy is to save shipment cost of my IKEA king mattress.
What will you recommend. It would be my first accessory since I got MDX.
I just purchased an 05 model, it does not have the navigation screen. I was wondering if i purchased the navigation unit would it work in my model? It looks like the unit i have has the same plug, but an extra smaller plug as well.
Hi. Im new to the forum and ive noticed that it is nearly impossible to find nice ground effects mods for my X. Instead of buying one for a similar truck and chopping it. I decided to fabricate my own and im thinking of making a bunch if people are interested in making their mdx look more sport...
We just bought a 2014 MDX and I'd like to purchase some accessories. Heavy duty floor mats, advance running boards and roof rails (OEM parts). Does anyone have a recommendation for where to buy them that has good prices?
