    Hi,

    Got a set of front mats from audi. Cant see how they clip in. Can anyone offer any advice?

    The top and bottom black plastic bits seperate, and then there's a plastic screw on top.

    I had the same issue as maxp, took them back and reordered using my car registration number and got a set that fit perfectly.

    Think it was about £47 for the front two.

    Rear's were around £30-£35, which I passed on!

    I paid about £27 from TPS for the front ones IIRC, I too passed on the rears at the time (I think they are almost the same price) as hardly anyone sits in the back.

    I saw those ages ago too and have them bookmarked. They do look very well priced and there are possible optional addons. You could always sell the rear ones on ebay and surely even at a fiver someone is bound to buy them ! arn't they ?

    i paid about £40 for front & back from my mate who works at audi ;).

    for my old 1.9 tdi, however saying that the ones in my sig car are not a tight fit as my old car ones was.

    maybe i will look at getting some new front ones for her...... ;)
