    Driver floor mat worn down

    My driver side floor mat gets worn down to the bare material that holds the fabric together after only about 6 months. I assume this isnt uncommon for a manual car but how can I avoid it? I have STi floor mats in the 05 ATM and that square of thicker material isnt even lined up to wear my foot rests while driving.

    Has anyone thought of a creative way to prevent floor mats from getting ruined due to this?

    I don't know if that is normal. Mine is a bit matted down there but not worn substantially in going on ten years now.

    I'm not sure how normal that is.. I'm still using the same floor mat from my original WRX I bought in 2002. The mat probably has around 160k on it and real signs of wear, other than being matted down.


    I do drive barefoot most of the time, so that probably has something to do with it.

    Doesn't sound normal. Have you tried all weather mats?

    hehehe, I could not resist. Do you have a lead foot?
