    Floor mats

    I hope this isn't too far off the subject but I assume detailers deal with floor mats all the time. My question is, does anyone make a excellent quality floor mat? Seems like OEM mats start to show wear
    (especially in the heel area) within about six months or less.

    Thanks.

    I don't know of a particular aftermarket brand, but here is a tip I have to keep my OEMs new. I take them out, and replace them with some cheap generic mat from the auto store. If I am going to some social event, I put my nice plush OEMs back in. Mine are quite nice, with the model stitched in the mat in white thread, so I don't want to get them dirty or worn.

    I hear they are good but pricey.

    I currently just buy the cheap mats ($15-20) from Walmart...they last a couple yrs and has saved my OEM G35 & Impreza mats looking new

    Thanks for the tips. I'll give it a try and see if I end up too lazy to switch them out.

    Here's a tip for cleaning the all weather type, especially weather tech (with its touch corners and fought texture). I use foam pad cleaner and a regular soft bristle brush. It foams up nicely and I use rags to wipe up instead of water. Water tends to mess with the particle suspension. I follow up with copious amounts of meg's natural shine protectant.

    I power hose my factory mats and dry them in a drum , they still look like new to me. They're just nylon and plastics , which lasts almost forever.

    If it's a family car, tell your wife that driving in high heels is against the law and potentially dangerous.

    Wal-Mart type floormats drive me crazy trying to vacuum
    A lot of car manufacturers are even starting to "go cheap" with their carpeting I notice
