^^^ Looks nice mate, couldn't find that when I was searching, how much did it cost you if you don't mind me asking? Also where did you get that silver top for the cup holder? Or does it come with the smokers pack?

I got a set of gaiters from them but with silver stitching and they look great when fitted, sorry not got any photos handy. A tip for you, look through their other items for sale, the price for GTV ones varied between £12.99 and £19.99, there listing says ask about different colours for stitching. Find the one for £12.99 and on your order state the colour you want for leather and stitching.....saving £7.00....:)

Nice tip mate thanks, was wanting red stitching as I have etna black paint, so its to "match" the paint...I know it wont match for 355 days of the year, but that 1 day when it is sunny and the red in the paint is shimmering in the sun, it will match!! :lol:

Very nice, lovely interior too! :thumbs:

Was it difficult to trim it then? I would end up f**king it up and going too short! :lol:

I started by fitting them full length but they looked too scrunched (hope thats a word )up, so to make sure I didn't mess up the new ones I trimmed the old vinyl ones till they were right and then cut the leather ones too suit. Where I had to cut the stitching I re-sewed that with nylon thread and then superglued the ends to stop it coming loose. Make sure you fit the handbrake one with the brake released or it will pull too tight at the rear. Good luck and post some pics when it's done, they make a big difference.......:thumbs:

Found these on the bay today around £30 inc p&p.
They would look good with these mats, with the red stitching and rectangle Italian flag. However would want the handbrake and gear gaitors to match, otherwise it might look a bit disjointed :confused:

That set I posted a pic on earlier is the handbrake as well as the gearlever cover.
That pic set is properly my favourite so far and for £30ish not at all badly priced...could be better though :lol:, as its coming direct from Italy too!! Mmmmm very tempted. How long did your other one take to come to you? Also did you have to trim yours down to fit?

EDIT: it appears yours comes with the plastic just to clip it straight in, whereas the other set seems not to and you will therefore have to reuse your own plastic clip and properly have to trim to fit.
