    I recommend you don't get them too thick! I bought some very thick ones last year from an e-bay site & they were so thick & stiff they were like MDF.

    Someone posted a link to a site that was selling some for peanuts. I bought some & although they're not Premium, they're much better than the e-bay jobbies.

    Can't find the link right now as I'm on my phone, but I'll look later.

    I got some from premier car mats on ebay. Went for the luxury graphite. Very happy with them.

    I spent hours looking then paid the £47 to get the genuine Audi ones - Stoke Audi Parts was the cheapest I could find at the time. I am very pleased with them. I just need to find the rear set now !

    I've got the rear rubber ones and front carpet ones, i'm not a massive fan of the rubber ones to be honest. Although they do serve their purpose better than carpet mats.

    Here you go mate, second post down, They have the clips and fit perfectly! don't forget to enter the coupon\discount code IWANTADEAL! think I paid around £14 for a set of four (inc postage), but not sure what they cost now.

    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/audi-s4-a4-a4-cab-b7-chassis/209402-floor-mats.html

    Value Car Mats.com

    Edit: £18.40odd, but enter the code in your basket before checking out and the cost reduces to £11.84 ...even if you don't like them they're cheap enough to replace later. :thumbsup:

    Have got a set of these.
    Very happy with them for the price.
    Quality is very good and they fit well.

    Would say worth more than the £11.84 they are!

    I seem to have a fixation on my mats now the better weather is on its way, and got lucky finding some (soul black - which is actually grey) OEM's on eBay today ...just before I went to the main dealer to pay double what I ended up paying. Now I feel a need to pass on some of that good fortune:

    I don't have any affiliation with the seller, but I went to pick them up in person (he gave me a small discount for saving him the hassle of posting & fees) and he's a genuinely nice chap.

    He said he had 1 more set left, so first come ...Audi A3 8P Genuine Carpet Mats *New Set 4 2004-2012 8P2863691 QJN Soul Car Floor | eBay

    :hi:
