Just ordered a set of these in the grey to match the seat piping in mine and the original carpet colour.
£134 with the 20% off. I'll let you know the results
Cheers

They look lovely. However, being leather, surely they’ll scratch and look tatty in no time? Any grit on your sole will damage the surface.

I figured that too, but the mats I've got look grubby fairly quickly too. Maybe I'll use the carpet ones on the floor for people to wipe their feet on first . I'll keep you posted when they arrive - it'll be a few weeks apparently.
Cheers
Ian.

I've had them in our GT for about 6 months, but I'm not at home so I can't get a picture of them. Mine are black with red stitching and they appear to be well-made with absolutely no wear shown. Just an FYI, they're made in China and I honestly don't think they're made of real leather. They certainly feel and look like leather, but for about $220 (US) or £134, I doubt that they're real. I've received many compliments on them!

Don’t know about leather but some of the real fur coming out of Russia and China is cheaper than the fake stuff. So much so that some shops have been caught out selling fake fur items that are actually real fur.

Some investigations have also come to the conclusion that real fur is more environmentally friendly and better for the preservation of wildlife than fake fur. Who'd have thunk it.

I contemplated getting these for myself for Christmas, but having not seen them in the flesh, didn't know if they'd look a bit naff. They look great in the pics.
So one recommendation on here so far, I'll be interested to see what you think when they arrive. I'm really tempted.

There is a photo on its website of the black with red stitches on a granturismo. Looks great in the photo in my opinion. I have ordered one to match my black seats with red stitches. I will either return it or put it on eBay if I don’t like the look of it once installed

These are the mats that I have. My car has red carpet, so the black with the red stitching really looks great.

I have just received mine, but car at the dealer to sort out a few minor issues - making the most of my warranty before it expires.

The car mat is decent quality, with nice red stiching to go with the car interior. Given that it is a weekend car and not used in wet/winter, I think it is relatively simple to keep clean. Not sure if it is real leather, but quality looks good to me.

A photo here, I will take another one when installed in the car. image.jpg

You beat me to it :)
Marvellous - just got mine yesterday too and was surprised at how tough they actually look and feel. The install advice is to allow them to settle out for a while to allow the travel creases to drop out and then fit. - so they're currently laid out in a warm room
Likewise I'll post some before and after - a project for the weekend methinks.
Cheers
