    After purchasing my 2005 CL500 yesterday, the light grey carpets are 'mingin'.
    Not wishing to be a 'tight wad' and not pay main dealer prices, has anyone purchased a set of overmats by 'Ultimate Car Mats' ?

    This link will take you straight to the mats I am considering.

    What caught my eye is that at least these are tailored in exactly the same way as the originals i.e. with the two main extensions on the drivers mat at the front and they are retained in the same way as genuine Merc.

    Any comments appreciated.

    Kind regards, Will

    I do not think that anyone has ever found mats that are as good as the genuine ones,,, we had a very long thread on this. The adds for the mats sound like a dream come true,, they seldom are

    I haven't tried these particular mats, but if they are the same quality as others I have bought in the past at about twice this price they will start to curl after about 3 months and bare patches will appear around the drivers heel after 1 year.
    If I recall correctly a new set of velour mats for my 55 plate W220 cost about £100 from the dealer and as they were still in perfect condition when I sold the car after 3 years and 50,000 miles, I considered it money well spent.
    The dealer mats also match the interior perfectly and have the all important alloy badges fastened to them.

    To be honest, unless you want something "special" i.e. custom logo or colour combo, the genuine MB mats are by far the best quality for the money. My OEM mats survived 100k miles and still looked very good.

    Have to agree with above comments. You pay for what you get. Cheap mats will last a short time.

    I had a set from classic car mats for my W123 and they are superb but cost about £100, however well worth the money.

    It is sad that Mercedes only keep the mats for about 6 years, Euromerc often has many. They are bulky things and so many colours, so not easy to stock

    Thank you all for your replies, all are good too.
    I have therefore ordered a set of genuine MB mats from Euromerc.
    Only problem is they only had 'Helious' in stock (with no pics). I took a look around other sites and am pretty sure this means they are dark blue in colour.? I have Alpaca grey leather interior with light grey carpeting. As the body colour is Tanzanite Blue, I have taken the plunge in hoping that this will make a nice contrast in colour, plus they'll stay looking cleaner for much longer.
    Thanks again, Will

    I only ever got as far as a BSA Bantom back in 1952 for a few weeks, it was green, the same colour as the average kitchen back then ;) My elder brother had a 1937 New Imperial, they were the days, I always wanted a Douglas flat twin, the sound of those was wonderful

    "with the two main extensions on the drivers mat at the front and they are retained in the same way as genuine Merc."

    Sadly not the new ones as supplied with my recent purchase from a main dealer, admittedly on an E Class but all my previous mat sets had the two extensions.

    Will Barber, as a retired professional motorcyclist here is my personal record. I have owned every engine cofiguration ever manufactured as a production motorcycle. Single Cylinder to across the frame 6's and every other configuration that anyone would care to name in between. No longer riding due to very serious off in 2007 not my fault in any way shape or form but it resulted in a fatality, a very serious injury and me walking away with a few bruises because I knew what to do. Seeing a car fly over your head whilst you are doing a 45mph get off puts things in a very different light.
