Winter mats?

Hey guys, I haven't been on in a while, and wow, there's a lot of new people.. hi everyone!!

I'm trying to debate which winter mats to get in my CLA250. I decided not to go with any packages from my dealer, my rep just didn't have a good deal and I figured I could do better.

I want something that doesn't make my car look awful (black on black).

I was thinking these were good choices:

1) Lloyd floor mats
Lloyd® - Rubbertite™ All-Weather Protection Floor Mats

2) Covercraft

3) Cave in and buy stock ones and haggle:
All-Season Floor Mats Car Accessories from Mercedes-Benz

What would you guys do? It's about $50 no matter what, but I want something that lasts my lease term (3yr) and that looks great. Would you go OEM? It's getting wet and my stock mats are getting destroyed.

Hey @jimelectrical, what was the dealer quoting on the OEM ones?

I've usually gotten away with aftermarket. I also usually buy used, my ML320 is used (I really should post pictures!). You could probably go to a smaller shop and buy some for $30 or so if you don't care about it. They're going to get snowed on anyway right?

OEM ones are $185 but are not available yet. Since I'm getting mine as part of the deal with the car, I bought some cheap ones at costco for $19 to use in the meantime.

Which ones did you get @aaronp01, just some basic rubber mats?

Yes. They were either goodyear or michelin brand; I can't remember. I've e-mailed the dealer for the status on my freebie ones so we'll see what they say.

You may want to consider the weatherTechs. I have them in my ML350. You just have to watch the area right next to the seat which can get some salt stains but they are great.

Hi Joe! If I were to buy used MB mats for the CLA250. Any ideas as to which other models' may fit the CLA?

How do the hard rubber/plastic mats feel in the cold? I've never had them but I would imagine they feel slippery. Granted not a major issue in a car, but I could see myself not liking the feeling. Also how well to they hold on the carpet underneath? If they slide around with a bit of foot movement, then I would probably get the Weathertech molds since they won't move about over a generic shape that can move about.
