    you could just try using contact glue... like evostick or the like.. it's what they use for bonding and repairing fabrics..brush the glue in through the hole and pull the rip together using masking tape.. work a try??

    can't cover up with a mat becuase it's up the side by the gear box area,god knows what here heels where doing up there. plus the material won't pul back together looks like a tiny little bit is missing.

    Looking at the halfords kit's i'm guessing there some type of gause patch....

    Just a thought, could you take a patch from under the passenger or drivers seat (at least it would be perfect colour match).

    Scrape/cut fibres of unseen carpet and using tiny amounts of glue stick them in the hole and brush over. This is how chips away do it only they charge £40!
    I tried it myself on a cigarette burn with my fat clumsy fingers and got a perfect result.

    Yep that would work. Did the same thing on a carpet in a flat I was renting a long time ago, when I dropped an iron on the floor! There was an off cut in a cupboard and I carefully did that and it looked perfect! Meant I didn't lose any deposit!
