    Hi all,

    As the title implies I wish to get some new car mats for my Honda Legend. I always fancied having a Legend with the grey leather but they were quite rare, in what already was a very rare car.

    I ended up going for the black leather interior, and it already has the black car mats in, but was thinking of treating her to a new set. Now my question is should I stick with the matching black mats, or is it going to look really silly if I went for some grey mats?

    Polite answers only please lol

    On grey car grey mats look wicked , but they look scruffy when dirty.

    Like your first name Zoran "The Zube Meister"

    Do you think the contrasting black interior with grey mats would look OK?

    And thats a cool first name.....you don't even need a surname with a first name like that!

    Grey on black will look good it will make the cabin more airy as it lighter colour and cut out the endless black drab..

    As for Zube we are not worthy...

    I'm going to have a sleep on this. Will resist temptation to ring HH right now and sleep on this tonight.

    PS Sorry Zoran but I kneel to no one, only my Legend when I am cleaning and waxing her :Smile:.

    And CJ how did you do that kneeling graphic thing? It's not on list of graphic thingies? :Blink:

    I've had grey on black in a black interior before and they do look good.

    BTW CJ's secret is that he attached a gif file :Wink:

    Personally I'd stick with black, but I never have been one to take a risk! :Smile: Both of my cars have black leather interiors, with black carpets and black carpet mats...

    How about rubber in the front (for Winter) and carpet mats for the Summer? Protects both the carpets and the mats.

    I have rubber mats and I love them.Easy to clean and a really good quality.
    won't be buying carpet ones any time soon.

    I thought about rubber mats for the winter but just do not like how they look. Maybe I need to consider a really nice premium set....my last personal recollection of rubber mats was about 25 years ago

    Well I've just realised I have a perfectly good set of black carpet car mats in my car currently. The only reason I was looking to change is to get some contrasting mats in to liven up the interior. I think therin lies my answer.....it's got to be the grey carpet mats!

    Rung up HH and quoted £99 which is a bit steep, but they are very plush carpets, and the best bit I think is you also get a piece of carpet that attaches either side of the rear car mats and sits over the hump (don't know proper name but the annoying thing at the back that stops the middle rear passenger sitting comfortably :lol:)....how cool is that?!?! Got it on current set and looks really nice.

    Thanks for all the answers guy. Just wish I had seen the Honda rubber car mats before. Put in some new carpet ones on my CR-V earlier today which also came from HH, but just seen a picture of the rubber ones and they do look really nice. Hey ho never mind!
