Arrow Weathertech Custom FloorLiners (WINTER)

How many of us would that are driving the 1 during winter would likely be interested in purchasing a set of weathertech custom FloorLiners.

Check out the following site.
http://www.weathertechcanada.com/sto...2#checkVehicle

Typical costs in somewhere in the 160$ range. I think this is all 4 as a set.

However,

If you are in, VOTE on this posting and I will direct someone from weathertech to this posting to show our support and dedication for this wonderful product that keeps our cars clean.

The alternative is Micheline or Goodyear rubber floor mats which are not as digitally cut and WILL drain water, salt, snow, mud all over the carpets.

Please, show your support.


And thank you,

Not sure but should this post not be in Marketplace part of the forum? Anyway, no matter to me... be you might want to find out cause those Mods can be quite harsh when it comes to vendors. (I know you are not, but... better to be safe than banned)

Look how deep they are though. They look like they would be great at holding muddy water in the winter.

The site says they don't make them for the 128 anyway.

I just want some mats that won't slip like the stock ones do. It's totally annoying.

slip? Mine do not! I have a velcro disc on the right/left side of both front ones. 1HungryMan, did you not get that?

Zero slipage.

Yes, the site said they don't make them. That is at this moment, but are willing make them should their be enough support from, said, a group like those in this forum perhaps. Agree with EXB, their is velcro disc to prevent mats from moving. BTW: Am not a vendor here, I am just looking at pushing this vendor to make some floorliners fro our cars. Ofcourse, your petition is needed to show interest and support. Thanks to all !

I've already bought the BMW ones and they do not slip. They are perfectly fine unless you get into a lot of heavy mud areas.

I got those mats from BMW also. Too thin on the edges.

I guess I'm only preventing rain from flowing around for the most part. I don't usually have to worry about large accumulations of mud or snow on my shoes.

Yea, I have the two discs but they do nothing. And the worst part is that unlike other cars which have little thingies the mats slip into this has nothing so they slip like crazy and are even dangerous as they often slip over the accelerator while I'm driving.

There should be a disc with the hooks on the mat and a disc on the carpet with the ring part of the velcro so that the two discs come together. The discs on the floor of the car are actually screwed in.

Do you have that?

I emailed WeatherTech as well. There's another thread that was started earlier this summer to gauge interest in their mats for the 1-series... It sounds like they were less than helpful in our request to have floor *liners* with the tall edges produced, versus the standard all-weather mats. I have no clue what the cost of production is to have them fabricate a new mold for these, or what the demand has to look like for them to justify that production, but let's all stay on them and see if we can get them to manufacture these things!!

I would be interested.

I am picking up BMW's rubber mats tomorrow. It should do the trick for now.

Knowing that the winters in Montreal are psycho, I would have no problem buying a better set of mats....

KCobra, I can sell you mine. I have 2 fronts and 1 set for rear. And also a spare for the front. I will really not have a need for them anymore. Am in Toronto Ont.
