i heard from a dealer when i first went to look at the tc that the floor mats will be avaliable in colors soon. the rug part of the front mats can detach from the rubber part so i think you will be able to buy new rug colors. anyone know anything about this or when they will be avaliable?

i know what you mean Eric. it is a pretty nice set up. if they have color ones for the back seats though, they will have to be whole new mats because they are just all rug.

Of course, it could just be that the dealer was just full of it. Damon excluded of course, some dealers just make stuff up to reel you in or make it seem like they know a lot...

if you are talking about the front floor mats. they are supposed to come apart around the sides. when you pull off the hard plastic tab on the bottom part, then you can pull out the carpet and just have a rubber floor mats. To put them back in, you will need to tuck them in around the sides of the rubber mat then snap the tab back on.
these are all season floormats, just the way they are made.
although this doesnt apply to the rear seat floormats.

Personally i like these floor mats bc i can remove the carpet for the winter and hose off the rubber mat in the spring and then tuck the carpet back in

saves me from having to replace the stinky white stained (from salts we use on roads) mats winter after winter!

Yeah... our floormats rock.
It would be nice to see some colors in the rug part... a little change sometimes is kinda fun.

If you mean that the rug is getting big lint balls all over it I believe that is normal (my mats should be here tomorrow). But think about this, if you ever bought a new rug for your home, the first few days of walking on it you'll see tons of carpet lint. Dunno if that's what you meant but that's what I gathered from it.

do you wear rough-sole shoes or something? Sounds like your twisting the fibers to much, or the mats are just defective! -t

it sounds like a defective set if it is falling apart. i'd show the dealer and ask for a new set. i didn't know that floor mats could be defective. very interesting

i had my mats when i got the car and the first thing i did was change the color of the carpets.. i took them to this upholstery place out in town and they only charged me 50 bucks. i took out the original carpet and gave them the carpet that way they can cut it the exact same way. now i have NEON GREEN carpet on the inside. I'll post pics whenever i figure out how. it is so frustrating!!
