It never occur to me to post this here, so here it goes.

For those who are looking to protect the car from the nasty Canadian winter I have purchased these and so far they are doing an excellent job.

I got it at partsengine.ca. They are not fabric and IMO are better than weathertech and Kia winter. I have look at both prior to get these and I think these are better and also less money.

I paid 145 for the hole set.

Dallas the gas pedal cut seems to be of poor design. Your salt is all collected at the bottom there.


I was thinking of getting some of these fancy WeatherTech/3D Spider but I bought some cheap stuff from Walmart for $15 and they seem tow keep the snow in and around the rubbered area fine.

I know sometimes my heel gets stuck on the kia winter floor mat, the gas pedal cut does kind of suck but I just try to position my foot differently. Have not tried the summer mats yet.

Hey Rick, do you find that sometimes your heel gets caught and then your clutch releasing isn't as smooth? I am working in some new shoes currently and they catch the Walmart liners I have which sometimes makes getting out of first jerky. I tried hovering my left clutch heel and that just doesn't feel natural to me; not sure what techniques people use, but I never learned that way. I suppose when you look at it, that will save you a lot of carpet wear when winter is gone and you're back to the carpet setup. I really hate the liner feel as it is right now and I don't plan on selling the car so keeping all the OEM carpet in pristine condition isn't much of a concern for me although I would rather prolong its life than otherwise.


May be I could alter my technique where I have my heel at a 45 degree angle almost like a reversed heel/toe style. And yeah while the 'sport' pedals are cool to look at, I've had some slips every now and again when my shoes are wet. Yikes!
