I can understand what you might be feeling about the tail lights now

But I would suggest you to get that replaced ASAP to prevent water seepage in to the tail light compartment (Courtesy : Heavy showers in Kerala)

There are few dealers willing to bring in the 3D kagu mats in Cochin. Havent checked them out personally. As Ventolute mentioned, check out the shop from where he purchased.

Thanks a lot venotlute

Do you know the name of the shop or any contact details? Or it would be nice if you can provide an insight on the price range. I need it for my F10 5'er. I just want to know if it's available there before I pay a visit. I don't come to Kochi quite often. So if you can provide me the phone number or something it would be really helpful.

@aravind511,

Please find the details of Global tyres-where you may get 3D Kagu mats. Yes this shop is opposite to EVM motors,Peninsular Honda etc.

Global tyres, Vyttila-Aroor bypass,Cochin,0484-2112407,Benny George-09446395664. I bought them for my ANHC. It took them a week to procure- quoted price 4500/- gave me 250/- discount. I suggest you call Benny and place the order.

Cheers,charthom.

hey aravind511. There are the details posted right above this post. I Dont go to cochin that often either. Just happened to waltz in there after a visit to vw cochin and found the mats there. This guy sources the mats from Bangalore. And yeah i was sold the mats for 4500. I purchased the same mats from hot tracks in Bangalore for my vento for 5500.

Hi Aravind,

Of course the price depends on the car.The product is very good. I feel it is worth the money and wait. Please check out page 33 of my thread for ANHC,
"Does anyone buy A Honda City anymore..." for a comparison of black and beige mats.

Welcome to the 3D mats clan-all the best!!

Best Regards,
Charthom.

PS.You act like lightning!!

I had tried to procure them directly from Hot Tracks, Bangalore. But I found the guy I contacted the most unprofessional,indifferent,ignorant and snobbish salesman around. He over quoted 4800/- too. I got frustrated and dropped the idea. Later on,while filling N2 at Global, I spotted the 3D mats for an Audi. They agreed to source for the City too-hence I got them.

Thanks a lot charthom and ventolute.

I have placed the order for black 3D Kagu mats. It will take one week whereas beige is readily available. The beige ones in charthom's ANHC gels well with the beige interiors and looks awesome. But got a little skeptical about how the colour would go with 'cinnamon brown + black' interiors of my car and hence ordered black. I called up Bangalore and Hyd dealers for 3D mats. And yeah, it seems Hot Tracks is charging Rs.500-1000 more. Hyd and Kochi dealers quoted 7.5K to 8K where as Hot tracks' price is fixed at 8.5k. Will upload the pics once I get it.
