Hello

Can anyone point me towards a good replacement mats supplier please? My grey originals are well past it, a motor show ordered replacement set have not been a success and, as my 993 C4S owning mate constantly reminds me, are really letting the side down! Mind you he struggles to get his car above 4,000rpm so opinion on many matters has to be questionable!

So, some decent quality replacements mats are on the shopping list. All suggestions welcome.

Thanks very much

Do you mean the original carpets or overmats?

Good question...and now I think about it it's the footwell carpets I'm after, driver and passenger side. Thanks

If you go to Dinslaken you will find a number of suppliers who will be happy to take your order there and then.
Failing that I would try Carbone - or an OPC...

I agree with your 993 mate - shoddy mats let the whole car down. Gun Fire

Southbound probably the best U.K. Option, any color you want and OE quality

Magic. Thanks very much both. Missed Dinslaken this year...but not waiting until 2020 to sort the deep pile!

Southbound i agree ... like the ones in the picture but without the Ruff logo , or buy the Ruff ones .. i had a set in both my 964s and they are virtually indestructible plus easy to clean and are not chunky , highly recommend but very expensive .

Well, finally I've managed to crack the replacement mats problem...it's only taken about 5 years!

Called Southbound. They were super helpful, pointed me towards the base of my old (and stored) original mats for a part number and then explained that Porsche had reintroduced grey mats as part of their new classic range! Brilliant.

So, for around £160, I'm now the proud owner of a complete set of brand new, OEM mats, proper colour for my car and including the metal thingys to stop them sliding around. Here they are alongside the old ones.
