Default Mats

Mine are looking rather past their best. Anyone have a good experience with getting some new ones made? Seems a bit of a gamble looking at the online mat companies

5-7 days production, 14-21 days shipping from China. You can get very similar looking ones on AliExpress for quarter of price, probably made in the same factory by the same people.

And there was me thinking they came from the good old U S of A. Best avoid then.

I've had car mats for both my cars made in the UK and they were fine and delivered quickly.
Just can't recall the companies now, and they may have outsourced to China of course by now...

Edit: The last lot I bought was for my Volvo from Cyberspares, full colour-coded interior set and boot mat. They seem to advertise a lot on Amazon, can't find the old web site...

My Audi winter set (black) I think came from caramats.co.uk or carmats-uk they seem to have very similar products and prices.

Maybe there is some mileage () in searching for a UK manufacturer of carpets and mats for the D2 range of cars? Pretty sure there would be enough 'templates' available for this?

Somebody like Coverdales? https://www.carcarpets.co.uk
