Has anyone bought any universal floor mats from Canadian or the like and fir them successfully?
I'd like to get some nice rubber mats for the front. Performance Mazda wants $91 for a full set, on "special"

thanks!

$19.97 or maybe 29.97 @ Costco for Michelin - Ill let you know.

---

I got a stupid question for everyone... I just bought them (Michelin Mats) and they REALLY don't fit in front. It says on the packaging that they are "adjustable", does that mean I have to cut and trim the edges so that they fit nicely? Or am I just on crack and the MZ3 needs special mats?

Thanks!

You have to trim the Michelin ones to fit. Cut along the grooves with a good pair of scissors. I have them in my 3 hatch and I think they are really good for winter because of its deep moisture pockets and it keeps the water contained in the winter. They are $29.95 at Costco and I think it is better than any canadian tire ones.

Woot! I finaly know what to do with them, I was wondering if that's what I had to do, but wasn't sure. I still have my carpets in the car... ;)

Thanks!

Anyone have pics of their trimmed-to-fit "universal" floor mats? I hate returning stuff...

A possible idea would be to trace the shape of the carpet mats onto newspaper and take the newspaper template to the store to try to find one large enough... Then again I might look like a stark raving loon :lol:
