Title: $230.00 for ONE floormat!!! :x
Post by: SweetVW on March 20, 2007, 10:52:29 AM
I called Emich VW just now and asked what a replacement drivers side or a set of floormats would be.  He stated that they sell the floormats individually and that the driver side alone was $230.00.  He stated that this is the mat that came with the 337 from the factory.  He did offer an alternative floormat set that was the same minus the red stitched piping around the edges and was a little bit thicker for $74 and change.

Holly sheist!!!  :x

Them's some high quality mats right thar!

For that price you could find some really nice moster mats--maybe even some with 'GTI' on them. I lubs my monster mats! :D

Dave, check out the Stratmosphere custom mats.  I've used them for the last year and have never seen nicer mats at any price.  There is a big difference between these and the OEM Audi mats, which are pretty nice.

also check out www.cocomats.com  they can make custom colors, and are the best mats I have EVER seen.  I have some in my MINI, and they ROCK.  If you ever want to see them, let me know, we can hook up for lunch.  My custom made to fit, custom color combo was about $140 shipped.  Took about 5 weeks to get them as they were custom cut to fit my MINI, but they also do that for any car, so they look OEM.

You could get them in black with red dots, or any other combo you want.

I can get a better shot of mine if you want, but here is one made to match my interior, blue and tan.

Lloyds also makes great mats.  Many suppliers sell them.

My likey the cocomats.   :thumbup:

Jon, do they anchor down or just rely on the nubbed underside to keep them in place?  I really did not see anything on their website about that.

Jon - those mats look awesome.

I am running the Audi OEM all weather mats for the allroad.  IIRC, they were about 200 but for 4 0f them.  judging by the amount of MUD and MUCK currently in them, I am glad I went with those rather than cloth.

Dave - what ever choice you make, just don't go with these:

I like the underdash glow, but ONLY if it's understated. I had it in my Passat- a nice, soft calming blue glow barely noticable but just enough :D Loved it. Hate that.

they are just the rubber spikes, no anchors, but with their weight, thickness, and the quality of the spikes, and the exact cut to fit the car, mine don't move one bit, EVER.
