    I have fenders on mine but 2 mates have been pulled up regarding having none. I don't think they got fined to be honest but fenders/ no fenders is a sort of a grey area dependant on who you speak to I think. I love the look of mine when it used to be fenderless (21 years ago) but the reason I fitted some is I didn't want to give an excuse to be pulled over. But....looks wise, fenderless every time for me but I don't work for the Police or VOSA. Someone will be on here to give you a better answer than mine though I'm sure. Great looking car by the way.

    On the other hand if a copperdoes decide to pull you and you don't have a set in the boot he can PL9 you ( Prohibition Notice ) requiring a 4 wheel lift to recover it.

    It's not an endorsable offence , and you will need to MOT your car to get the prohibition removed.

    Don't think it meets Construction & Use to not have them, as with any road vehicle. Strictly speaking I think you even need mudguards on a bicycle, but how many even new ones have them? The police have got bigger fish to fry - like that Audi A6 in front of you with a stash in the boot - that's if they even know of the regulation.

    Sorry, my post crossed with Kapri's who's the oracle.............

    What about the "I don't need them unless it's raining Officer" answer? Does that work? Then again, I suppose it's who you get pulled by on the day...if you'll pardon the expression...

    ..and when they ask what you do when it starts to rain and you can't pull a set from your trunk it all goes pear shape.

    Yep, thats why when I first got the Coupe I did exactly that for a short while until I fitted them 'permanately' so to speak. If someone was fenderless but had them in the boot and either fitted them or at least proved they could be fitted when/if they were pulled over, would that suffice?

    Not all that grey I'm afraid.

    63.—(1) Save as provided in paragraph (4), this regulation applies to—

    (a)invalid carriages;

    (b)heavy motor cars, motor cars and motor cycles, not being agricultural motor vehicles or pedestrian-controlled vehicles;

    (c)agricultural motor vehicles driven at more than 20 mph; and

    (d)trailers.

    (2) Subject to paragraphs (3) and (5), every vehicle to which this regulation applies shall be equipped with wings or other similar fittings to catch, so far as practicable, mud or water thrown up by the rotation of its wheels or tracks.

    Flipping heck....it's not a case of "not all that grey" but..."not grey at all". I wish I could say the same for my hair. Along with Kapri's, theres your answer I think gurustorm.
