Factory mats may have an aethestic appeal but for protection of the carpet they leave a lot to be desired. I wanted something to protect my car's carpet, after all it isn't easy to replace. Lloyd's Rubbertite mats fit the bill. They fit perfect, lay flat, don't slip and will catch anything you throw or drop, at them, including a cup of coffee. They are easy to clean, just vacuum or wash off and they'll probably out last the car. Great product.
