    I ordered these. They came very quickly, well packaged, and well labeled. A nice little touch to help make my car feel just that much more 'upscale'. Occasionally, I have need to empty my pockets into the console for a bit - no more rattling as I toss the keys and pocket change in the tray - and MUCH easier to fish the change back out.

    Just a nice touch for the interior all the way around.

    I also ordered these for my Prius "to be". I actually came across Wilson Wong's eBay site before I saw this posted thread. If you visit his eBay Store, you can also link to a variety of other auto chat sites discussing these console pads and find many testimonials of happy customers.

    I'm sure I'll be pleased! However, I think the console pads will arrive before the new Prius.

    I just ordered a set. (I'm picking up my new 2010 on Monday)

    Thanks for the tip!

    Hi:

    I just did something I never ever thought I would do. Order something from eBay! Heard so much of people selling 'stuff' which turned out not to be what it was suppose to be. But after seeing so many positive replies to this person I figured I would 'take the plunge' so to speak. Look forward to them arriving in a week or two.

    Hope I won't be disappointed.

    I just unpacked mine, and boy were they smelly. Does it dissipate over time?

    It's the same material they use on mouse pads, and does smell, but I left the windows opened, in the garage overnight, and it was gone after 2 days.

    Didn't notice a smell on mine, but if there was one, it dissipated quickly.

    Ordered mine on the 19th, got them in the mail yesterday (24th). Not bad since that included a weekend.

    I've purchased a set as well. They were shipped instantly and arrived quickly. I doubt I'm personally going to use all the pads it comes with since some of them are for areas I'm not concerned with rattling or slippage. The ones I am using (especially for the two glove compartments) are great!

    Now if only there was one for the sunglasses hatch to keep my glasses from rattling around up there....

    I ordered a set last week. They arrived in about three days and fit perfectly. Very pleased.

    I ordered a set for my wife's new Prius late on a Thursday, seller shipped them USPS on Friday and they arrived the following Thursday (after the long Labor Day weekend). Ours were made of textured black rubber, a bit thinner than the thickest rubber mouse pads, backs and fronts identical, no strong odors or smells. Each pad is precisely cut and individually labeled; I'd like to know how he gets his accurate measurements. Nitpick: pad for console change tray doesn't fit all the way into front corners (rounded instead of squared off), hardly noticeable. Pads for back seat cupholders are round like in jay_man_also's Post #2 picture (Camry) above - a good compromise for these molded cupholders. Pads all fit perfectly otherwise, no trimming is required. A sheet of double-sided adhesive cut into squares is included if you opt to tack the pads down (good for rear cupholders and coin tray, we left the other pads "loose", they stay in place just fine). Hardest part of install was peeling paper off double-sided adhesive squares ;) Overall, good quality but $34.99 is a bit extravagant for 11 pads ($29.99 for 04-09 Prius 12-pad kit. less for other kits). The seller is very friendly and professional, and the pads add something we felt was missing in our '10 Prius, especially the gloveboxes and cupholders. We recommend them.

    OK, I'm going to be a bit contrarian here and say I find them a bit smelly and don't really like the feel and texture of them. I may just go buy some felt and use these as templates.

    Hi:

    I received my Console Pads last week. It took two weeks for mine to arrive - farthest east you can go in Canada!

    They all fit perfectly and I am very pleased with the transaction considering this was my first eBay purchase! The seller (Mr. Wong) replied to my questions, concerns very promptly. Good product, good Customer Service!!!

    I have one suggestion and don't know whether it is just me or others might concur: would love to have had an additional pad for the Lower Glove Box that would cover up the large section that when it is opened and lowered whatever is actually in that section those items will actually lay against. Don't know if I made myself clear! :confused:

    Thank you once again for making this Aftermarket Product for us.

    All the best.....

    Just installed mine, agree they are very nice. Fit great. Agree would like to have had an additional piece for the lower glove compartment. They pieces were well labelled and the included double sided tape worked well. Agree they are a bit pricey, but shipping is included in the price and our Prii deserve them :)

    So, when you are done do you want to sell them?

    Sure, but I may have to check with xman live first. I'll let you know. You may want to PM me to exchange e-mail addresses.
