Default Footmats for City VTEC

Hi Guys,

Recently bought City VTEC... it came with footmats which are of the carpet material... which seems to go dirty the moment you step in the car... wanted to check with city owners if they use the same or buy new transparent ones over them...

Also, are mats available for the boot as well....?

Let me know
Udit

Bro,
in all our cars, including the merc, we have a transparent plastic mat covering them. It makes more sense for everyday use then the carpet mats.
Cheers

the beige mats get dirty very soon so you can but the plastic transperant mats over them.

they are washable and can reused.

Besides the transperant mats, there is an option of black rubber mats as well.

Udit,

In all my cars , i use the 3M rubber fibre mats. they take the dust in, and dont let it stay up on it, and even mud and all are easily taken in by it, leaving the top portion clean and nice. U can just take it out and dust out the dust in it, and if wet feet has been kept, then u can even spray wash the mats to remove off any additional mud which is stuck inside it.

They are like fibres of rubber all over. give a nice cusion to ur feet too. comes in grey mostly, but can search for other colors too , like black/brown etc.

Udit, the dealers in Bangalore have another set of dark-beige/brown colored rubber mats that look good (unlike the transparent mats that look odd w/ beige interiors). They charge 1200/ though and the set doesn't include a boot carpet. BTW, a rubber, black boot mat is provided by manufacturer/dealer at the time of delivery.

I feel that is a good option but slightly expensive though.

When I bought my car in May 2004, I had to purchase the boot separately. Are you sure they are providing boot mat at the time of delivery?

Yes, because I got it during my ZX delivery.

yup same here...using transparent plastic mats for my city zx vtec too.the carpet mats get dirty very quickly and the advantage of transparent ones is that the beige mats are still visible througgh them.
