    Default Genuine or very good quality mat's

    Anyone got the sort of price for new genuine mat's or anyone bought aftermarket ones they were particularly happy with?

    I need a set for the Astra and Vectra as the cars didn't come with them fitted

    I bought a set from Argos for about £15 that I've now had in three cars/90,000 miles and counting. They protect the flooring in the car and were cheap/cost-effective enough that when/if they eventually wear out, I won't shed a tear. They're not fancy but you can get them with a number of different-colour trims IIRC.

    £15 tesco heavey duty rubber mats for me, I dont like wet carpets in the winter these are carpet inlay rubbver backed.

    Used a stanley knife to cut the 2 holes for the lugs on the floor and they work a treat.

    I bought the vauxhall rubber mats for both front and back from their website and, 18 months on and 26k miles later, there is not a mark on them and no sign of wear under the pedals. Very pleased with them.

    No need to get expensive VX mats. Gte heavy duty rubber mats. These if necessary can be trimmed to fit, although to be honest I found both the Mondeo and now the Vectra can take a set without any trimming. I would avoid carpet mats as they nearly always end up cureld up and can actually be dangerous when used in the driver foot well.

    I always go the fitted carpet route to be honest, I am always very fussy about cleanliness and the look of the real thing, even as far as buying OEM where possible but there are so many aftermarket places that do a 10mm polyproylene grip backed replica for less than half the cost!

    in winter and snow I have rubberised overmats I put in the car but apart from last winter I have barely had to use these.

    Don't really see the point of carpet mats. They curl and can become dangerous and they get just as dirty as the actual carpet, whereas you can easily scrub clean a rubber mat.

    To be honest I have never ever had a set do that, in over 20 cars now, perhaps it comes from buying a quality well fitted one with the retaining lugs, I don't know?
