Not bad. I love Costco and I may just give these a shot. I live in the south and if we get snow, I won't be driving my QV anyway.

Hi, do the tuxmats on the Q4 driver side extend over the whole dead pedal, unlike the weathertech which only partially covers it? Thanks!

That leather set looks great. I'd almost hate putting snowy, muddy feet on them though.

Yes, they entirely cover the dead pedal.

I received the full set on Saturday. Since I have a Lusso with the crema interior, I got the black. Because of the color difference, fit is important (to me). I am disappointed in both fit accuracy and coverage, particularly the driver mat.

I think this is their first (successful) attempt at mats for the front. When I checked in June, they only had mats for the back, suggesting some sort of problem.

I have not contacted Weathertech yet so will reserve additional comment until I hear back from them. After they respond, I will post photos (since this kind of stuff is as much opinion as fact).

I don’t understand why you feel obliged to WeatherTech over pictures, but I am curious as to how they handled the passenger side transmission tunnel hump, and would like to see a picture.

I wouldn’t expect the mat design is otherwise any different than the RWD model— the floorpan isn’t— so it was probably just a tricky molding job for that hump which caused the delay.

In any case, I was unimpressed with the RWD set, and am not surprised to hear of your disappointment, unfortunately.

Interestingly enough, the passenger side transmission tunnel hump is the only area that fits perfectly. The laser measurement apparently worked in that area.

I will post the pictures laster today. The reason for holding back is to see if W-tech sent the "first try" mats by mistake. I assume that they measured once and did it wrong & that's why they were only selling the rear mat set.

Pictures to follow - this afternoon.

Here you go. Weathertech liner photos installed in 2018 Ti Lusso AWD (crema interior & black liners).

As you can see, the mats are "short" on the seat end. That's probably more of a visual problem than a functional problem but for $205, the laser-measured liners should conform better.

The driver liner does not extend to the right of the gas pedal - that place where your wet footwear sometimes rests. The left edge of the driver liner is about a 1/2 inch too tall so might be a spot that your shoes catch entering the car. Probably not a big deal but not a "laser-measured" fit.

As I said in my original post, the problem is the carpet color. If I had black carpet, it wouldn't be so obvious and I would probably be over it.

My alternate choice was going to be Tuxmat. The photos of their liners show better coverage/protection but I don't know how their materials compare to W-Tech. I went with W-Tech because of their reputation. I never heard of Tuxmat until a couple months ago.
