    Anyone know where to get some decent mats that match the carpet?

    i still have standard mats in my S3 but they are starting to get tatty. Don't really want to pay Audis ridiculous prices for a set of mats. Anyone got their hands on a similar set? I bought a set off eBay not too long ago but they looked aweful so I sent them back.

    cheers

    Matching carpet means going to Audi, my ones have covered only 60k miles and there was a hole in the driver carpet worn through from the heel of shoes/trainers. I got some of these off another member for free. Think they was purchased as part of a groupbuy many moons ago though!?

    i have been looking too as i want to replace my old OEM ones.

    First off was pointed in the direction of Ebay.de as they have a wider selection search for Fußmatten but my concern was that they are gonna be for a LHD car.

    So i have since found these on ebay Car Mats in Black to fit Audi A3/S3 (96-02) + S3 logo | eBay not bought any as yet but i did contact the seller to ask if the rear mats had fixing points too as in the pic they dont and they said they do now come with rear fixings too.

    I bought just the badges and I'm am going to put them on some mats myself they even look better then the ones on the mats above
    I will find the seller I bought them off when I get back from work, will save people a small fortune to because that's all they are doing is using cheap mats and putting the badge on and charging around £50

    cheaper is better so if you can find the linky that would be good.

    Anybody found any good quality mats for a reasonable price these baqdges could be added too?

    To be fair I think I got mine from Audi and were cheaper than I thought this year. Think I managed to get them for between £30 and £40 for the fronts.

    I have a set of S3 logo mats exactly the same as in JoJo's picture, from a group buy on here a year or so ago. Really good quality, lasting well and the S3 logo is a good reproduction.

    Don't listen to voorhees - he obviously doesn't know how to use a hoover!

    I'm with Jason on this, mainly because the OE ones last longer and wear better IMO. The group buy ones off here, whilst they look nice, have worn a hole through in half the time the OE ones did. Also, the heel pad on the after market one is gash, it just gets in the way.

    So any links as to where best to get actual OEM mats for a reasonable price as i can then add the S3 badges if necessary.

    Well I got a front set of mats for my S3 earlier in the year and I'm certain I didn't pay over £40 for the set which I thought was reasonable considering they were from the stealers. They also swapped the fixings around as the facelift S3's had different fixings compared to the pre-facelifts that have push ins

    eBay for mine. I guy in hamburg, Germany makes them occasionally. Awesome standard. Cost about £40 for full set including international postal charges.

    Check some of my photos if you like and I'll dig out the seller.

    If you can find the sellers details that would be great as £40 for a full set of good quality mats is well worth a look.

    Guys, just so you know, I phoned up Awesome GTI to ask as they had done perfectly good ones for my LCR and they do them for the 8L too. I just had to do it over the phone as they don't show them on their site currently.

    Ordered dark grey push fit, NO heel pad by choice, S3 logos for the hell of it. Sub £40 deliverd for the full set, worth a punt. I chose not to go with different colour edge trim etc. Will spam pics once they are here if wanted.

    The fit of the aftermarket ones around the cross-member (near the driver's seat) is pretty shocking, right?

    I don't think I'd be able to put up with such an apparently poor fit.

    Having said that, my Audi rubber mats are shocking. Not least because the guy I bought the car from covered them in copious amounts of silicone. Now, every time I get into the car, I'm like bloody Bambi on ice. Hideous...

    I got these for mine off Ebay a while ago, sorry about the manky state of them, they're not usually like that :3sadwalk:.
    i ended up getting a hardish plastic heal pad fitted at a local place for a tenner cause there was a mark appearing where my heal was.

    So will be very interested in seeing any pics of said mats Mr Footlong :)

    Got a reply back from awesome GTI and yes they dod do mats for the 8L S3 with the logo but as stated not on their website but i guess they are very similar to these Premium Quality Mat Set (4) - Golf Mk4 - Car Mats - Styling - Parts (especially as you can select an S3 logo and push fittings) so for under £40 delivered i think i will get some for Xmas.

    Cheers for the info as been looking for some for a while now i just hope premium quality is as good as the OEM sort.

    My mats turned up last night. I think something got lost in translation as I was after dark grey mats to be a better match for the floor but got black. Probably my fault somehow though. They aren't some super luxury item, but are perfectly acceptable for the money :). I am tempted to order another set if I can get the right colour and sell these on:
