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.

Its a very short nap. Its sonehow fused to a waterproof layer underneath. You just hose them clean and either drip dry or pat dry with a towel. They dont 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.

Weathertechs will be my last option. They are ok but fw are better looking (imo) and easier to clean. Salt comes off with just a pressure washer. Another note is the fw has mushroom tabs instead of holes. Less chance for water to seep thru when taking them out. The tabs seem to be the weak point as I broke one off just by regular Pulling. They sent me like 4 sets as a replacement. I guess they know they're not the greatest. I just pull it off more gentle and haven't broken another one since.

Never dealt with tuxmats (they are local to Toronto too) but the price and looks (again imo) swayed me away.

Just curious, does your clutch pedal push into the top of your Findway mat?

Asking because I just picked up a set and every time I push the clutch in, it pushes into the top of the mat and makes a creaking sound (plus it doesn't feel good like that) because there's a small void between the underside of the Findway and the carpet of the car where the clutch pedal is. I have a clutch stop too, so it doesn't even go in as far as a stock clutch would - which would make it worst.

Want to know if this is normal before I either get warranty exchange if not normal or refund if it is normal - which would be too bad, because they are great mats otherwise, especially for the price.

Does anybody know the part # for the OEM 2019 Rabbit floor mats? they look like a much cleaner look then the mojo mats.

Yeah the mojo mats are too much IMO. I have the monster mats and like the look, have Husky liners in the SUV and they work there but would look off in the GTI IMO.
