tipo floor mats ?

do all new tipos come with those rubbish looking front floor mats ?

they do the job I guess, but when a dealer is claiming "they have put mats in for me for problems I had during the ordering process" only to discover that no, actually they are standard fit mats ... slings a little. :/

are these a Fiat provided thing or a dealer specific thing ? just wondering whether to kick off and demand something more, or just forget about it and get some of those proper TIPO branded fitted mat sets?

Re: tipo floor mats ?

You might need to put a picture up to show what you mean, a cheap set of rubber mats are ugly and cost the dealer nothing but carpet mats tailored with a tipo logo on them are usually much more costly and give a more luxurious feel to any car, both would be original fiat accessories, some after market but 'tipo' branded sets might look good but be cheap, not last and not fit properly.

Previous genuine fiat mats I've bought had lasted a good 3+ years and fitted perfectly

Re: tipo floor mats ?

It's a set of front only none branded mats, they in themselves look ok... Quite thick with a rubber heel protector insert, but when i first saw em i assumed they were generic non brand mats, not really what i meant when i asked for a set of mats, previously the dealer in question has given me the branded tailored set for the car in question.. I've now purchased and fitted the proper tipo set with very subtle almost 2 tone lettering.. but i discovered when trying to buy these that other tipos come with the same front non branded mats i had in mine. Trying to figure out if this is another one of the car dealers lies ?

Re: tipo floor mats ?

A lot of the Tipo's for sale on AutoTrader have non-branded generic looking mats with a large rubber section where your feet are likely to be most of the time.

If yours came with these then they appear to be the correct ones, but whether Fiat supply them from the factory or not, I'm not sure. I would lean towards saying they probably do, otherwise there wouldn't be so many Tipo's for sale with them already fitted (I can't imagine many dealers bothering to fit mats to pre-reg cars if they're not already present from the factory).
