Fiat brand foot mats

Bit of a naff question from me be but does every one on here buy the Fiat footmats..? They look good but at 54 certainly not cheap, i see some very similar ones for half the price on Ebay..and made to fit a 500..or so it says on the advert.

The branded ones are great, fair enough, I got them as a freebie, but, if and when they wear out, I won't hesitate to buy them again. Hope this helps?

Ask nicely when you place your order

Re: Fiat brand foot mats

I've got Fiat mats (rubber and carpet types) but only put them in the car when I go to a meet or somewhere special otherwise I use some from ebay which have the extra heel protection for normal use.

Re: Fiat brand foot mats

original mats are the way to go because they are designed for that car only so they look like a proper part of the interior, and they fit properly too.
there are a set on ebay that look to be a bargain!

The non-original ones on eBay are made to fit the 500 as well. Spending money on originals is just a waste.

Re: Fiat brand foot mats

I have the original Fiat branded ones which do look good. The only downside, as posted sometime ago, is they have velcro on the underside, to prevent them from slipping. Putting the mats in and out will therefore eventually cause the carpet to "fluff up".

Re: Fiat brand foot mats

I got a set of standard mats from Halfords for 8. Fit the 500 perfectly and don't slip about.
Bargain!

I got the coloured edge ones with the 500 logo on them off ebay last Xmas, they fit really well and have worn well, at about 15 a set you can have a new one every year. I had red edging and logo to go in with my red stripes etc. But that's just me.

Yeah I think I've got the same ones. They're good quality, hard wearing and pretty cheap. Got some really heavy duty mats for the wifes car the other day for a grand total of 3.41!!!! It was at Costco and they're discontinued but still.... that's bloody cheap
