    i love the looks; stylistically i think its tight, but the price is a little out of my league.

    200 on floormats alone sounds outrageous to me. idoubt it'd be that hard to make your own floormats for cheap.

    I'd have to agree. I think they look pretty cool, but $200!

    I agree they might look good, but the price is a total rip off! Even if I did have the money to spend on something useless like that I probably wouldnt get them, imagine the cleaning involved, taking them out of the car and stuff. Blah!

    $200, adds weight to car, doesn't make it go faster... they gotta be crazy! Ok but in all seriousness, I dont think it's really worth the 200... check ebay

    I have his mudflaps but not his alloy floormats....But at $180 they are cheaper than the $200 you refer.

    They also include an alloy dead pedal.

    Bluuhhh, uhh, uhh, hack, hack, hack....uuuhhhhh. (puking sounds)

    Sorry, just my opinion. You did ask.

    After spending over 20 years working in an industrial environment (chem plants, refineries, offshore, nukes) I have seen enough aluminum deck plate. The last place I want to see it is in my car. Who thinks this crap up?

    Peace,

    i think those look absolutely rediculous. it doesn't match anything on the interior and looks stupid. wtf would you want metal floor mats for?

    totally horrible imo. and for $200?! i was hoping they'd pay me!

    i bet they would get pretty hot in the summer, and would cause someone with bare feet to get an unexpected welcome when they sat in the car

    just imagine when they get wet... talk about water spots, burned feet, and of course, metal shows dirt easily! now if they were brushed aluminum, it might actually blend in with some parts of the interior better.

    Dude, I wish I had thought of marketing the Pet Rock! I bet that cat isn't driving a WRX. More likely, something with an Italian or German accent.

    Not that there's anything wrong with the WRX, I drive one, but then again, I didn't market squat.




    Peace,

    i had one marketing idea that never really got off the ground, mostly cause of design flaws and really, the simple logistics of it.

    my friend and i were talking, and came up with a multi-Billion dollar idea: condom cigarettes - so you can "smoke" it while you smoke it

    when someone comes up with the money to market this idea i'm sure they'll become very very rich
