Default Winter Floor Mats - WeatherTech

Bought a set of WeatherTech - DigitalFit winter floor mats and they fit 'like a glove'. They are made of good quality material, will see how long they last but they seem perfect if you're driving the P-car in the winter.

Am planning on cleaning all the carpeted area, spraying it with Scotch Guard before putting down the floor mats. A monthly cleaning (I don't drive much) of the interior should keep it in good shape and prevent any salt or water damage.

Any other thoughts, ideas from the experts?

The Best Winter Mats I have ever had. I do not drive the Porsche in the winter so I did not buy them for the 911, but it is the first thing I buy for my daily drivers. I use them all year, my interior carpets are Brand New even after 5 years.

They used to make them with Porsche Script instead of the Weathertech Sticker, might be able to find a set if you search.

Bought direct from Weathertech.. I think they're overpriced at ~$186.95, but no regrets. Nice quality and a perfect fit! Has anyone priced them from Partsource?

The Weathertech products are of high quality and are made in the USA. You will love them.

I got the same ones but in black, the look great and fit great. Tad overpriced but I guess they'll last many years to come as long as they are maintained.

Your photos don't show it but do those mats have the huge WeatherTech badge attached to them. A little too much for me.

It is one of the first items I buy for our cars. I have one set in my land cruiser for the last 15 year. The carpet below is still new. This is my hunting/fishing/camping truck, so it has seen a lot of weather. They are so good BWM rebadges them and sell them as their own.

The latest version have a WeatherTech logo that is glued on and easily removable, one of mine came off during shipping and was stuck to the middle of the mat so not a big deal but they fit great. They are moulded to fit the foot-well of the specific car and instead of being flat on the edges they have sides that keep the water & snow contained.

This is ot, but how much corrosion and rust you see on your car when you drive it with salt on your roads?

Bought used Weathertech mats and an outside car cover. I have weathertech's in all my other cars as well. They fit very nicely, as expected. The car cover? I guess I will use sometime. Ex Porsche owners seem to keep their stuff immaculate. Rust and corrosion? My used car has spent eight years, running all year round. I have cleaned and scrubbed it. Everything seems to be galvanized or aluminum. It is now in a heated garage and cleaned regularly and fully service as she always has been. Like a once cold outdoor mutt, she is very appreciative being inside.

I have these in our SUV, and like them very much. When new, they have a shine/gloss that makes them slightly slippery, but this diminishes quickly with use. Nice to know that the WT logo is removable.
