Question Photos of splash guards installed on C6?

What splash guards do you have installed on your C6? Would you mind posting a photo of front and rear showing what splash guards you have?

Awesome!!! I just rec'd mine from Parts Taxi Friday via UPS.
Did you install them or have the dealership do it? Is it an easy install?
Any detailed help in the installation procedure would help me greatly.
I am not the shadetree mechanic I inspire to be!!!

I am very particular, so I spend more time making sure things are done right the first time. The tape makes it a little tricky to install, cause it's kind of a one shot deal. And my car is waxed to the point where (masking tape to hold the pieces in place) will not stick to it. The fronts use the factory holes, makes them go on pretty easy. You don't even have to remove the tires, just turn it one way. The rears require taking off the tire and drilling holes in the inner wheel well (be careful the drill bit will want to suck itself into the plastic wheelwell). I held the rears to where they fit the contour the best and drilled the holes through the piece. Using one of the bullets to hold the top and worked my way down installing the fasteners as you go. Then with the fasteners through the holes but not locked, you carefully remove the backing from the tape and press to the opening. If you just stick it to the panel gently you can adjust it slightly. Also do one side of the rear at a time, you can then measure from the bumper-quarter panel meeting line and position the other in the same place. This way they will both be even from behind..
Good Luck- feel free to ask me anything you would like.

Does anyone know whether, or not, splash guards can be installed on new 2010 GS's? I saw my first one yesterday and the plastic wheel well liners appear to "roll" out to the body edges. Is it possible, or even needed to install GCA splash guards on the GS? Just wondering as I had intended to install them, but now am not sure that it is possible. Thanks!
