I have not come across such mats anywhere except VH1 lifestyle shows, where the rappers show off their 'bling' rides!

Better stick to PVC mats. Fur mats may cause fibres to come loose and float around inside the car. The mat will also be hard to clean. Besides, by using fur, you can expect the PETA to come running behind you!!!

Im not sure but I dont think he meant actual fur mats but the cloth ones which have a little padding to make it soft and comfortable.

I went through the bentley website to check out the fur mats, if they've used it, but could not find anything. Try your luck - Bentley Motors: Bentley Motors Website

FUR MATS ?????????? For our dusty climate ?? You will spend a lot of time cleaning your car's inside.

If you are bent upon it - here is a suggestion. buy those rugs/carpets with ARTIFICIAL synthetic fur, have it cut to size & bingo you have FUR MATS in your car, maybe you can put some fur on your dash as well to complete the FURRY look !!

Has the "furry suggestion" come from the "ladies" on your avtaar ??

On a serious note - not adviseable !!


Cheers

I guess what you mean is shag carpet, you should be able to get it at a good carpert dealer, then cut it to the size/shape you want.

This is how it is in the Rolls Royce.

V10 you could try a couple of home furnishing stores and get custom cut lengths as per your requirement. They should have this material for sofa covers and all.

You need to, but if its a S Class then you can always get it vaccumed every week, and you have many more cars.
