the wear proof mat that was noticed on the RS tC is now a standard item on all tC's. my guess is that they noticed people were complaining, and made a change. this sounds like warranty stuff to me. i am going to talk to my service guys about it. i was able to warranty out Eric's replacement drivers mat, so i dont see why we cant. i will let you know. in any event, they are at least available for purchase, though i dont know that you can order just one mat. i will post more after investigation.
