    I've been contemplating forking over a couple hundred buck for floor mats, front set & cargo liner. It seems a bit excessive, no actually way over the top. Here in central Vermont, dirt road that I live on, winters that we have, may be a wise investment. Someone help me out here, talk me into it, out of it, something.
    Also, if it is to confirm that I purchase these mats does the tan match the bisque interior well?
    Thanks

    I ordered these the same day I took possession of my car. I have these in my Range Rover, BMW and Murano. They are worth every penny and save your interior carpet from the nastiest weather and grime Mother Nature can throw at you. My Detailer recommended them to me and I will always purchase them for a new car. Incredible product.

    I think they actually enhance the appearance of the car as well as protect it. I wish I had purchased them sooner.

    I highly recommend the Weathertech's as well. You forget about the price after your heel rubs a hole in your first set of $100 carpet mats, or you get mud on your interior carpet.

    If you want to try something a little bit cheaper, you can checkout the CarBox mats. I haven't used them personally like I have the weathertech's, but they're about $90 cheaper for the whole set.

    I purchased these from Weathertech and they are wonderful. I initially ordered the tan but the color clashed with the bisque interior so I exchanged them for the black and they look GREAT with the bisque interior. They match the door panels and dash.

    I say treat yourself and save your interior and order them!

    I love the weathertechs - I have them in both of my vehicles. I opted not to get the hatchback liner though (saves some dough). I just carry around a tarp in the spare wheel compartment if I have someting dirt to load.

    The tan mats are darker than the bisque, but they don't look bad at all in my opinion (and much nicer looking than dirty carpeted floor mats!).

    First accessory I bought for my car. Worth every penny.

    Thanks for all the replies, guess I'll be ordering some Weathertech Extreme's from you Danny. Guess I'll have to order the Splashguards also.
    Funny story, or maybe it just ticks me off so much I have to laugh to keep from breaking something.
    I go to the dealer to pick up my Prius today, I'm about an hour away so leave early with time to spare. See my salesman, he tells me the splashguards he told me he'd get thrown in are not an oem item so he can't get them on. These are the same splashguards I settled on after he told me the block heater I'd asked for him to throw in in the first place wasn't necessary on the 08's. So now he's getting me the clear plastic bumper protector. You know the heavy duty Saran wrap thing. And he'll throw in my first couple services cause he feels bad.
    Why does he feel bad you might ask, probably a little because of the two things I've already mentioned. Mostly because the Prius I drove a little over an hour to pick up was not picked up in the dealer swap yesterday. The cars not there! Come back tomorrow.
    So instead of rescheduling all the things I'd already rescheduled to make it today I'm here ranting. Guess I'd better get to it. Thanks for listening.
    Oh yeah, about the mats. In the pictures of them on this site they look very light. Misleading?

    Sorry to hear about your dealer woes! Better luck tomorrow...

    If you are talking about the tan mats, they are darker than they show in the picture.

    I like mine. My daughter mud covered soccer cleats no longer are a problem in the car.

    I pull them out and hose them off when I wash the car.

    One regret, the color did not match perfectly, but I still like them. That could have been my fault.

    Thanks for the picture...............worth a 1000 words,and all that. You know what I mean.
    Are those the Wet Okole seat covers? Been thinking about blowing more money on some of those also. I've got a a silver pine mica Prius coming with package 5 & the bisque interior. Thought I'd get the darker green/black seat covers, no piping. Comments?

    Hi All,

    I have the rear cargo liner. Well, it is waterproof, but its quite thin, and the plastic is hard and slick. So stuff just flies around back there now, versus the OEM carpet mat. They advertizes grooves to help keep stuff in place, but with the durometer of the plastic so high, they actually promote slipping, I think.

    Also, it covers up the storage well on the driver side. They should have made a large pocket that drops down into the well, or terminated the curled up edge before the storage well.

    It is a good deal for winter solar gain however, if you have a spot where the sun can shine in at noon, and your not so far north as the sun does not get high enough in the sky to come through the rear glass.

    The pictures are great. I wish the "tan" was closer to the pictures on our site's shop page. It would match the bisque interior better. Guess I'll go with the black, do the contrast thing.
    Thanks again
