    Mats

    Hi peeps,

    Has anyone bought after market mats? Any good or should I plump for genuine ones..?? My drivers side is worn.. I've seen some sline ones on eBay but wonder if they are a bit chavy?

    OEM rubber mats are the only ones I'd consider.

    I don't know how people keep their carpet mats clean, I'd have them filthy in a few days!

    Those are the ones I was talking about, what do they look like in the car, not too much with the sline? Does it look genuine? My worry is does it look to much with the door plates?

    I've just bought the OEM Rubber ones from ebay @ £36 - it came from Lincoln Audi, and they are quality and clip into place.

    I've previously bought a cheap tailed set before, however they fell apart when I put them through the washing machine. Don't ask me why I did that

    Kinda need the door haha! what happened to yours pal!? - Nah had the standard S-line alloys on when i got it, thought id get some S5 alloys though, make it look a bit more unique

    Like i said ive had the mats for a while and they are getting a tad worn now but the material quality from that ebay company is pretty good!

    LONG LIVE AKOYA SILVER!

    p.s. the rear floor mats have no S-Line embroidery, just the front 2

    Oh no! Some people are just idiots! The amount of times people have just changed lanes on me without checking mirrors is so annoying!

    Alloys were a straight swap, 18" also, so took the tyres off the old alloys and stuck em on these cause they were brand new...
