Car Mats - Worth spending money on them?

I am looking for some car mats for our new car but I am confused by how many are available. I am looking at two sets at Argos, one is £5 the other is £24.99. Both have good reviews but obviously there is a large difference in price.

The cheaper set is just rubber and the more expensive set is rubber with crome (effect). Both have non slip backs but the more expensive ones are hardwearing.

What ones do I go for?!

IMO best to get material ones because if your shoes are wet the material will dry them off and stop them being slippery when you are driving. My car came with rubber ones but I swapped them with material ones (from dads old car!)

I did think that but it would seem most mats are rubber. I saw a few material ones so I will take a look.

Just my opinion, I used the rubber ones it came with at first before I got round to swapping them, and if its wet out your shoes are slippy and those mats dont make a difference. Much better once I swapped them

i'd go for whcihever look like they'll be easiest to get in and out - i lift out & shake mine two or three times a week as my kids are always at the park, beach, playing football etc so they get muddy, grassy, sandy - and i can lift them out easily and move lots of the dirt - anything for an easy life !

To be honest, i only but the official car mats (if they still make them) due to perfect fit. The quality tends to be better but naturally come at a higher price.

Just my opinion tho

In the Argos catalogue, there is a set they call Deluxe, which are like carpet material. They're 20 quid - and I bought them for my car three years ago. It was only last week that I decided the driver's side one looked knackered...three years for a twenty quid set ain't bad. The other three still looked almost brand new!

I bought a similar-looking set from Tesco last week for a tenner...although the driver's mat has two layers of carpet where my heels rest, I can already see the material looking worn. So you do get what you pay for.

Asda are doing a carpeted set for a tenner, but they feel much better quality then the ones I got. Mind you - do you splah out £50 on a ridiculously luxurious set, and have to clean them every few months over a few years, or do you go for the ten quid option, replace them yearly and save yourself the bother of ever having to clean them...the choice is yours kimbles...!!!

Lidl are selling car stuff, including mats, from next week - £5 for a set of material mats with extra padding for drivers heels.7

Dunno what they will be like but just noticed in the leaflet thing that came with magazine, had the rubber ones too
