spray from front tires--deal with it?

I hate mud flaps on cars in general but I don't know what I hate more--dirt all over the car. Since the tires on my 05 M3 vert are wider than the wheel wells, they kick up a lot of small dirt specs on the doors and body area behind the front wheel.

I am not sure what my question is here--I guess I just have to deal with it and hose down the car more often....

What do you guys do? The same?

Looks like your options are get over it, put on mud flaps or don't drive the car when it's wet/snowy out. I know it's horrible for me to say, but a car is just a car and a car is going to get dirty if you drive it. So I guess that leaves you down to the previous 3 options.

Yeah, I thought about it some more. I guess my gripe is why they didn't make the wheel flares a bit wider. its only off a little bit. Probably would have looked funny I guess.

I got over it.
