Factory fender flares

Can anyone help me out with finding factory fender flares for my wife's 2012 Rav4? Please don't say salvage yard, I've spent about three saturdays walking around them even driving out of town to look! I've asked 2 dealer part guys and they can't seem to find them, well how do I get them if I were in an accident I asked, no answer! I would like to get them as a Christmas present for my wife. Any help would be of great help.

Do you currently have a Sport or a Limited, for which you are replacing the flares?
Or are you trying to install them on a Base?

Have you considered Ebay? For the base, you would have to drill holes in bumpers and fenders?

I am sure any dealer can order the flares but you would have to order for a Sport/Limited. It is not an option on the Base, as far as I know.

look at ebay, find RAV4 which are being parted out, (search on "steering wheel column", "RAV4"), and asked the seller if they are willing to sell you the flares. But you might still have to paint them.

Don't limit your search to the 2012 model year. The flares from 2009-2012 are identical. Probably the Sport flares from 2006-2008 would work as well, but I don't know for sure.
