Anyone have any ideas on better mats for the front that would have a heel-pad to keep a hole from wearing through? I have the rubber set for winter, but the driver's side mat is already getting a spot from my heel after 1500 miles. Just wondering if there are any custom sets that have the OEM fit that won't wear through. Any thoughts appreciated. Love the car so far!

They don't exist - I've looked. Just resigned myself to replacing front mats every year.<br>

Evolve and Heico make a aluminum plate that goes right under the gas and brake pedal on the floor matt. Rick

Or..take it to an upholstory shop and have a heel pad sewn on. <br>Shouldn't cost more than 10-15 bucks

Re: Front floor mats (JRL)

i bought some clear floor mats at autozone/advance auto to help protect the carpet mats from dirt and wear, and you can still see them pretty well because these are clear and just place right over the carpet ones. although the ones i have now worked better in my s80 because these slip and move a little more in the R but they have some newer ones now than what i have which may work even better.<p>i really like the peace of mind though from not getting those expensive carpet mats so dirty.<p><A HREF="http://www.rubberqueen.com/PDF/catalog.pdf" TARGET="_blank">http://www.rubberqueen.com/PDF/catalog.pdf</A> #7050 are the clear ones.

I bought some mats on ebay this march that have a driver's side heel pad and they were not that bad.I can't seem to find the guy's name but if you check e-bay you should be able to find them.

<br>Don't you guys get it?<br>Carpet mats are to protect the carpets, not to be anal about the MAT itself <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">
