No drilling??
I fitted mine, the instructions require 1 hole drilled for each of the mud flaps.
Only drilling into plastic trim under the car.
Front ones can be fitted by turning wheels hard right or left (depending on which side your fitting)

Rear fitting needs the wheels taking off. And you'll need a rivit tool for the offside rear.

Dealer fit then you say. At £90 well worth it rather than me attempting it.I was only going by the website blurb on the above link.

They don't look too obtrusive from the stock photos. Well worth it to minimise the salt spray onto the car. Next winter for me to worry about that though.

The rears mud flaps are really worth it, they've cut down the crap being sprayed up onto the tailgate.Fronts have made a difference too, worth the money

I think those pictures have made my mind up - I'll get the mud flaps, Will also be going for the genuine ones rather than the cheaper E-Bay versions which don't look as if they're a good fit.

Question (perhaps only half serious), but if I fit them myself does this count as a non approved modification and threaten the warranty while if the dealer fits them I'm OK? I'm sure I saw somewhere that fitting means drilling metal (rust?) as well as plastic - but maybe I'm having another senior moment

The only driling is into the plastic trim of the front wheel arch.Rears require a drill to fix to the bumper.

As they're genuine vauxhall parts, I can't see why the warranty would be at risk.
If they can't be fitted by the owner, why provide fitting instructions with them?

'Cos the "technician" needs to know how to fit them as well
