So my slightly used '99 TDI that I bought, oh about a month ago, did not have any floor mats. :(

Beggers can't be choosers when TDI shopping so I didn't fuss about it.

My budget will allow for one set of floor mats, so being in New England, I'm thinking about Weathertech mats, but no carpet mats underneath.

Or... would it be better to just go with the standard carpet mats, like these?

Thanks for any opinions on the MATter.

Gotcha. I see them here. I see one vendor says "will not fit oval retention posts." Hmmm, I don't know if that applies to me or not.

Done! Thanks for the tip.

FWIW, here's my TDI in its natural habitat when at rest.

I wouldn't do monster mats, I'd get some of those molded floor mats. They're cuped at the sides, have rubber sealed bottom, etc etc.

They've saved my carpet from a Route 44 drenching. I don't think monstermats could pull that off. ;)

carpet mats are good... for my dog to sit on in the driveway.



but in my car, i cringed every time anyone's shoes weren't perfectly dry... ohhhh mud!

the monster mats are awesome. they just feel like amazing quality, and suck any dirt in--and as mentioned above, SOOO easy to clean. and they look so sharp. :rolleyes:

I hear ya, I've got a BLUE R32 dead pedal... that stays hidden except for car shows. However, I think it's well worth it; these molded mats rock. :) The heel won't wear out like my stock ones, and they're super protective. :)

Monster Mats are great but they are rubber and rubber actually wears down faster than the carpeted "deep dish" ones.

I have Monster Mats on my passat - easy to clean - parents love to play golf

I have VW OEM Deep Dish - same ones that noR posted, these are your best bet! They "trap" the dirt while the monstermats leave the sides open a bit...

get the deepdish :)
