I wonder if the fiber/nap difference makes them easy to clean? Up to this point, I wasn't even aware that someone make carpeted all-weather floorliners that fit like Weathertech but are 1/2 the price, so I think I might have to buy a set.

It’s a very short nap. It’s sonehow fused to a waterproof layer underneath. You just hose them clean and either drip dry or pat dry with a towel. They don’t absorb any water.

i hate the look of the aftermarket mats out there (aside from cocomats). I run the honeycomb monsters for the daily. When they get dirty, i just know it's time to clean the interior. :shrug:

I'm in Ann Arbor, but based on the pics, I'm willing to take a punt on them, sight unseen. I mean let's be honest, how much time am I really going to spend staring at the floor, to notice the color of the mats doesn't match exactly?

I ran Monster Mats in my mk5 and they lasted a year before a hole wore through from my heel by the brake/gas pedals.

On a side note, 3 pages discussing floor mats lol

they are ok, but do not provide enough coverage. Especially up by the pedals. I was always getting that area dirty...

I use the monster mats as they came with the car. I think they provide decent spill protection. I do agree by the pedals the rubber wears faster. The honeycomb is a good design to keep water ect. I think next year ill get like 1 or 2 of the wide weather tech ones for winter.
