In search of… Cheap Floor Mats 98 Boxster

I bought a set of floor mats from Autooetc, purchasing the beige color, hoping that their beige would match Porsches Savannah Beige. The color wasn’t even close. The customer service lady was very helpful and afterwards sent me color swatches. None of them were close. The price of the mats was $55. Is there any place where I can purchase custom floor mats similar to a savannah beige for around $55 ? Otherwise, I may just settle for the color black.

I appreciate everyone’s help.

Used genuine Porsche mats should be cheap and widely available from dismantlers. That is where I would look for top quality and perfect color match.

If cheap is your primary criteria, you will have to check the actual color from each seller ... or just buy the black. To get factory matched colors, you'll have to pay more like $90+.

I have no idea why mat companies can't make a decent factory replica for something like $40. I guess this is just one more mystery of the universe like Big Foot, Atlantis, and UFO's.

Too true. It can be a nightmare sometimes for interiors other than black.

Thanks everyone !

I'll peruse E-bay for genuine Porsche mats and then if I'm left without any choice, I'll get black.

I appreciate your replies.
