What footwell mats?

I transferred the old ones from my mini but they dont fit (obviously) and look rubbish.
Without spending loads on specialist mats, which ones are the best for my 500 lounge

Thanks

Re: What footwell mats?

I always buy tailored mats from ebay. Got a set for my Grande Punto for about 15 quid delivered. Just bought a set for the wife's Corsa for 14.90 including courier delivery.
There are loads available on ebay. Just buy from a seller who specialises in selling car mats, and who has loads of positive feedback.
Quick check on ebay shows over 800 listings for Fiat 500 mats.

I like rubber ones in the winter but I got my carpet ones in my previous 500 from eBay. If you're like me, you can get them with the 500 logo on too and with coloured piping to match your car colour.

I had some eBay mats but they just didn't last long. Rubber all the way for me now

Rubber if your a mucky booter, carpet if your a polished shoe lover!

Re: What footwell mats?

Well maxi lives in Wales, so it's all mud and sheep poo so that's probably why he favours rubber.

Re: What footwell mats?

I thought there might be something in the foot size to carpet wear ratio. Maybe not.

Re: What footwell mats?

Just bought some fitted mats for our Megane from EBay - very pleased with the quality and the tailored fit. The fixings on the drivers mat are perfect. Price was 18 including postage. Seller was Carmat World, but they don't list Fiat mats. Plenty that do though, worth a try at less than 20.
