Default Carpet mats

Hi
I was wondering if anyone could recommend some tailored carpet mats for my '62 plate v70 auto? I havn't had great experience with aftermarket items before as they never fit, but I don't have 'main dealer money' sitting around to spend on mats either!

There seem to be one or two options around on ebay, and whilst they say they're model specific, I'm not convinced they are! Has anyone bought non OE items that are of reasonable quality, and fit?

Thanks

From experience, I have been there, done it and have the trophy wait until genuine ones come up on Ebay.

They do come up and it is all then down to how many people are after them on the day unless they have been listed with a buy it now or make an offer price. (tick the box in the advanced section to only show private sellers)

I have bought two as new full sets over the years for my V70 and not paid above 40 including the postage.

I think the OP is in Dartford Kent not Spokane County and the OEM ones still work out big money

I realize OP is UK. Believe it or not, it is possible to ship worldwide these days and it`s not all that expensive. Non OE ones are always going to be low quality. I would think having someone tailor making some can`t be cheap. A quick estimate was 75 GBP to ship

Default These have been good for me...

I have used this eBay supplier recently for our Ford Focus and Volvo S80. Low price and ours fit very well, including the correct fixings to stop the mats sliding. Quality good enough for me anyway!

Try a firm called Simply car mats. easy to find by google. Bought a full set for my 06 XC90 a couple of years ago. Top quality, perfect fit, choice of colours, trim and finish. Oh yes forgot to mention decent price to. Think I paid about 70 for the set and that included the third row mat for a 7 seater xc90
