    i got all weathers thrown in with my purchase. They are fantastic... Much more "beefey" then some knock offs... They are deep so they hold water dirt and the mix from getting on the carpet. Also With the OEM you get the snap holes like your OEM floor mats have to hold the all the weather mat in place.

    And you cannot beat the form fit of the OEMs... they match the curves real well and contour around the pedals and trunk/gas latch well...

    I may have been less happy if I paid 60 for em but I got mine basically for free.

    That's what I'm talking about, the snap holes. With what do you snap the mats to the floor?

    There are small "nipples" built into the floor on my rex. Two holes on the floor mats with metal rings around them on the carpet mats. The metal ringed holes snap over the small "nipples" keeping the mats in place as you drive. This is just on the drivers side I believe.

    On the all weather the same thing is going on but there are no metal rings. Just the hole for the "nipples" to fit into. However because of the rubber on the all weathers, the holes fit snuggly on the "nipples".

    Nipples huh? What year is your WRX? Mine is 2009 and the mats fit, but I didn't see the nipples...maybe I have to check carefully.

    mine too is an 09... go look under your drivers seat right before your floor mat ends... they are centered on the mat about 6 inches or so apart.

    Man, just my luck! The nipples are not there and I don't feel anything under the carpet. My WRX was from the first batch of 09s, bought in October 2008.

    Maybe that was not included, I don't know...damn!

    Well, could there be an adapter or something so I can attach my mats? Maybe the nipples are sold separately?

    I got STi mats from Park Mazda and Subaru. They are black nylon wool with a waterproofing chemical impregnated into the fibers, the backing is a rubber/poly gum with a texture similar to gravel. There are floorspikes at the fronts and rear, and they come in a set of 4 for $75 shipped. They have a Cherry Blossom Red "STi" logo on the sides of the fronts, and there is a snap which must be bolted in on the driver's side seat bracket bolt (12mm on the passenger's side of the driver's seat). It takes a fraction of a second to adapt the snap to a non-STi. Once installed, they do not slide forward like the OEM WRX mats do. There is indeed a nipple on the left of the driver's side mat which snaps into a grommet on the mat itself.

    I added Momo T200 "Grid" (yellow logo) mat plates to each front mat, since they are the same machining, color, and material as the metal stock pedal kit we get w/ the WRX (Deluxe kit w/ Aluminum dead pedal). The mat plates make the pedal area more agressive and business-like as far as appearance, and there is no slipping at all on any of it. You'd have to wear glass shoes to slide on all that knobbiness. Luck has it that the STi mats have a skid pad that outlines under the Momo mats' best location, which when used, make a driving shoe's rolled heel useful in a new way. It just makes pedal control better. There's ton's more feel.

    When Winter rolls around, the ol' WRX mats go in and get kicked around... our Winters are snowy no matter what. I am in Maine, where floormats are destroyed very often. Regular OEM WRX mats last a good 4 years before they slip, and they are around $45 shipped.

    Did I hear someone say they bought used mats?
    Mint condition Royal Blue Prodrives... I'd consider as spares

    Don't have camera, but there are no nipples. Theres nothing sticking out of the floor on that area. What I found is a small section of the carpet, just where the floor rises under the seat, cut to reveal 2 small holes, one of them threaded for a screw.

    Maybe that's for something to hold the mat for my WRX edition, could be for something else. Anyway, the seller from eBay told me there were someking of clips sold at the dealer for the mat. I'll be checking that.

    Thats kinda odd... I have honestly never heard of that before... Check your dealer and see if you cant get those.. like i said they are only on the drivers side right before the floor mat would end... they really help to keep the mats in place getting in and out of the auto ...

    The grommets that are included with these mats are in the bottom of the box... check that. There should be what looks like a bent fork with a snap attached (this applies to 02-07 mat sets from Subaru). This snap is bolted to the floor in a way that is very self explanatory. Simply loosen your seat bolt and slide the tabs in, tighten to spec, and you are good to go!

    I have an 09 also and purchased a set of the all-weather mats. I think they were a worthwhile investment considering that the stock carpeted mats were not that durable. One bad winter an they'd probably be shot. Mine cost about $60 as well. If your're looking for the best possible fit / finish I'd go with the OEM all-weathers. . .

    Also purchased the trunk liner for the sedan. Probably an unnecessary accessory but I can't stand getting grime on the trunk carpeting and, again, the fitment of this piece probably couldn't be matched after-market so I went for it. . .
