Buying and customising your Mercedes car mats couldn’t be easier, to show you how simple it is, here is the story of one of our customers who ordered our mats for his Mercedes SL500.

Our customer was a car dealer who sepecialised in luxury and high performance cars. He contacted us to see if we had the mats for a Mecedes SL500, he was directed to our website where he could view the pattern and specification of the mats available. As you can see from the mats pattern specification below you can see that they are cut exactly to fit perfectly in the SL500.

With the customers car being a high spec car he wanted high quality mats to match. He chose our platinum mats, the highest quality mats we offer. All of our mats are manufactured in the UK to automotive industry approved specifications and are all water resistant and fire retardant. Below is an image our platinum quality mats.

The customer also decided to add a custom text logo to his mats, he chose black mats with a silver logo on a black background to match the silver car with a black interior.

All of our Mercedes car mats come with official Mercedes fixing clips to keep your mats firmly secured in your car.

Buying Car Mats – What are the Options?

Buying Car Mats – What are The Options?

As a car owner it is always a good idea to protect the interior carpets of your car with a set of car mats. ¬†This will ensure that the interior carpets are kept pristine, helping you to maintain the value of the car. ¬†It’s also the cheapest way to enhance the look of your car interior. ¬†So, when looking for new set of car mats, what are the options?

Universal Car Mats – these are a universal, one shape fits all set of car mats.

Cheap РA set of 4 mats is available from £8.99
Availability – This type of mat can be purchased form hight street stores and markets.
Black Only – no customisation options / colour choices
Not Perfect Fit – will not fit the contours of your car as they are a universal shape.

No Fixings Рthese mats are not designed specifically for your car and do not have the fixing clips to keep the mats secure.  This is a very important point to consider!   Car mats that are not secured have a tendency to move and can ride up between the pedals and interfere with the braking and controls of the car.  This is very dangerous.   All modern cars have fixing clips in at least the drivers mat to keep the mat secure.  It is advisable to buy car mats manufactured specifically for you car.

Tailor Made Car Mats / Vehicle Specific Car Mats – these are designed by the Car Manufacturer to perfectly fit the contours of your car floor and remain securely in place, using the manufacturers fixing system.

Until recently,  this type of product has only been available from Main Car Dealers.  Main dealer mats have traditionally been very expensive and can also take many weeks to arrive.    Shockingly Рmost new cars are no longer supplied with car mats!

We now manufacture exact copies of theses main dealer mats, as an after market product, at a fraction  of the price of main dealer mats!  Each set of car mats is manufactured to order and we are able to provide a unique level of personalisation as a part of this manufacturing process:

– Choose from four qualities of carpet or rubber
– Choose from a range of contrasting cloth and leatherette edges
– Choose to add Personal Text
– Add a Logo from our selection or provide your own logo
– Add a Club Patch

Perfect Fit –¬†¬†the mats are designed specifically for your car and fit its contours perfectly
Fixing Clips –¬†the mats come with fixing clips specially for your car, ensuring that the mats remain securely in position.
Customisation – the mats that we manufacture can be customised to order.
Rapid Delivery – car mats are manufactured and shipped within 3 days.

So, in a nut shell.  Tailored Car Mats are by far the best option for your car.   These mats are available from our web site, Manufactured in the UK to the exact specifications of the original main dealer mats Рbut at a fraction of the cost.

In addition, our car mats are fully customisable.  We offer the widest range of carpet colours and contrasting trim options in the UK.

We also offer the ability to add custom text, company logos or official ‘sew-on’ club patches to your mats.

For classic car restorations, exotic cars, kit cars, motor homes and vans, we also offer bespoke manufacturing service.  We can make any car mats or interior liner by working to your paper template.

Custom Car Mats – A Buying Guide


Ready to Buy Your Tailored Car Mats – What are the options?

Thinking about custom car mats? If you have a car you are proud of but wish to give it an easy upgrade in terms of comfort and appearance, garage owners will tell you one of the simplest and most cost effective ways to make this happen is with a new set of car floor mats. Over time, these show signs of age and wear and can make an otherwise great looking car seem rather old and tired. Whether for function, style or originality, personalising the interior of your car is not easily achieved with store bought products. Your Car Parts allows you to choose the correct set of mats for your car Рperfect fit and complete with fixings Рand personally specify your custom car mats to suit your own vehicle interior.  You can even add personal text and logos!

Our custom car mats buyers checklist

Firstly, you have a range of options to search for your car. You can click on the easily identifiable images of manufacturer badges and then continue using the provided pictures to find your model. Alternatively you can search using your license plate, or a series of drop down options of manufacturer, model and year.

Please note that when entering your licence plate number the image shown of the car mats pattern is a generic image.  If you would like to see the actual pattern of the car mats Рplease navigate the site using manufacturers logos on our car mats page.

Once you have selected the correct set of mats for your vehicle, you can begin customising your mats by choosing your car mat carpet quality.  We offer four choices of carpet quality, PLUS the option of industrial rubber.  Whether you are a restoring classic car, buying mats for your sports car, are buying mats for a lease car,  or in need of something more robust for your work van Рwe have the option to suit.  The colours and prices are clearly visible for each mat type.

One of the most common questions that we are asked is about the carpet quality – so let’s take a look at these categories more closely.

Firstly, let’s look at the carpet weights. ¬†In simple terms this is like the thread count that you see on bed linked and sheets. ¬†The higher the thread count, the higher the quality of the bed sheet!. ¬†In the same way the higher the weight of the carpet – the hight the quality of the carpet. ¬†Higher quality carpet has more stitches per square cm, or uses better quality, heavier material – making it more durable.

The Standard 650g Car Mat

Custom Car MatsThe Standard 650g mat, is a budget ‘loop-weave pile’. ¬†Essentially this means that the carpet is made of thousands of tiny loops and has a rough feel to the touch – a little like a scouring pad. ¬†This is a short pile, robust, rubber-backed, fire retardant, automotive carpet. ¬†All standard quality mats come with a re-enforced heel pad for extra durability. ¬†In summary:

– Short Pile, Loop Weave
– Rough Touch, More Difficult to Clean
– Come With a Heel Pad / Fixing Clips
– Available in Five Colours
– Fully Customisable Product
– Manufactured to Order in the UK (3 Days)

The Premium 800g Car Mat

Custom Car Mats Premium 800gThe Premium 800g mat is another short pile carpet. ¬†In contrast to the Standard Quality this is a ‘straight-cut pile’ – which means that the carpet is soft to the touch, and is easy to keep clean, as the dust and debris does not get snagged in the same way as it does in loop-weave. The mats also feature a heel-pad.
In summary:

– Short ‘Straight Cut” Pile
– Soft Touch and Easy to Clear
– Come with a Heel Pad / Fixing Clips
– Available in Three Colours
– Fully Customisable Product
РManufactured to Order in the UK (3 Days)
