Anyone use these or seen them in real life.

Seeking enhanced sill protection from my grit filled boot cleats following a country walk.

The black plastic ones?

I bought them for my R as I wanted a contrast to the white paintwork rather than the shiny finish of the Lockwood sill covers.

They fitted well but sat quite proud of the sill as they’re bulky and water didn’t drain off them in winter. They literally touched to bottom of the closed door and I got paint rubs from opening the door.

I’ve not bothered fitting any to my Ed40 but would have gone for the VW foil protectors.

I`ve heard that before but no problems with mine.

You have those mats in a Golf?
Their website indicates they are not available, where did tou obtain yours from?

PS I have a Weathertech boot liner, simply the best and puts the VW offering to shame.
