probably find its a stain resistant type of material. why not look into companies that can do you new carpet for the car or even better if theres another in the punto range with black carpet

I'd say you'll need to try a bucket of bleach for a few days/nights with the carpet in, or if you're a dare devil - put them in the washing machine with bleach a few times, that should get the carpets white/lighter.
Then put the carpets in a normal wash, normally worth putting in the washing machine for a good few hours. Then once dry, put them back in, but with black dye! Might need a few washes with lots of black dye.
REMEMBER TO PUT THE WASHING MACHINE ON FOR A GOOD FEW TIMES AFTER YOU'RE FINISHED OTHERWISE EVERYTHING WASHED WILL BE BLACK!

Well - that's how I used to dye random things.
Let me know.

If your really stuck, have you thought about using sub box carpet instead? You'll be able to buy it in black, and cut it to size, it should be about £10 a roll from you local car audio shop.

Would be a lot of work, but could look the nads (y)
