New car mats for MURF

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Fri May 31, 2019 6:42 pm

As my old mats were starting to fall apart I used the club's discount code with Carmats4u and think they look rather good, if I say so myself. :clapping

These are the Premium Mats - https://www.carmats4u.com/rover-200-mk2 ... -mats.html - Black with Beige Leather edging to match the Sandstone seats. They were £67 all in for 4 mats ( in May 2019).

The service is excellent - they send you 4 paper templates to confirm fitment and the club discount goes through easily.
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

Those platinum mats are a bargain now - they have a special offer lower price and with the club discount, they're a steal.

For anyone who doesn't know, they have a non-slip back, vinyl edging and the carpet pile is between 1.7cm and 2cm depending on whether you're counting the backing in the measurement or not.

This basically means you'll be nipping out barefoot in the middle of the night to squish your toes into your car mats - unless you're decadent enough to have 2cm pile carpet in your lounge.

As confirmed by John McClane in Die Hard 1 - squishing your toes into deep-pile carpet cures most fatigue-related ailments, including jet lag - as per these two short excerpts:

1. This one first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdL3DYcfjuM
2. Then this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xTB1xCHb5M

Try it. It works :D

Paid way more than that when I had mine done - a few years ago now - but I don't think I had the club discount at the time either.

Jonathan's comments are right about the pile!

As I was impressed with their service, I ordered a set for a car I don't use so much. I ordered a set of their non-premium mats for a lower price and while they are perfectly good (they are similar to ones you'll find in Halfords) they are not a patch on the Premium set.

Highly recommended :clapping
