Thanks for the pics.

The coverage is not terrible, but not great. I have a particularly difficult time with the short dead pedal and passenger front footwell heights.

The factory mats are similarly short on the seat end. Dunno why.

I agree that, for the money particularly, something better is expected from such an esteemed brand.

I’ve seen the Tuxmats in person, and they are more than nice, they’re elegant.

I've had WeatherTech in the past, decided to go with them again. Went to order on line, they wanted $18 shipping. I discovered they have a showroom in Bolingbrook, IL, a south suburb of Chicago, and since I had to visit a client out that way, I placed my order in person. They cover beautifully, and I paid $179 plus tax, well worth it. Protects everything, snug fit. I sound like a freaking commercial.

Here you go - strictly for entertainment value. (Might be useful for Lusso/Crema owners)

I purchased my Giulia in June. I couldn't find any mats that actually fit the floorwell, so I made my own. Although not useful for winter, it worked quite well this summer. I plan to use them again next summer. I might tune the shape a bit near the gas pedal.

For comparison, I show the original mat on top of the mat I made.

Anyway, I made a cardboard template, bought a piece of cheap carpet, cut it with scissors & installed.

If I can do this without a laser to measure the floor, why can't laser measurement to better than this?

Nice work. Does the proximity of the mat to the seat rails impede forward seat movement? It is a mystery to me why the factory mats, and others like Weathertech, are so far ahead of the rails. Besides providing poor protection, it just looks silly. “Laser measure”?? Haha. Riiiiiight...

As if we didn’t just see the pictures...

From those pictures I'm pretty unimpressed with WeatherTechs "laser measured" liner. On top of that I am also very put off by WeatherTechs customer service considering they consistently told multiple forum members over a year ago that the mats would be ready in 2-3 weeks time...

Needless to say I've had their mats before and they are nice quality, but I'm not motivated to give them any business this time around with the Giulia. For around the same price, the Tuxmats look like they provide superior coverage so I'm going to give those a try.

Talking about cheap solutions ($29.99) and scissors & installing. Take a look at these Weather Tech Universal All-weather pre-cut mats at Costco. Maybe an option and currently working perfectly OK for me.

The W-Tech mats do not impede forward motion of the seats (if you are thinking that that's why they aren't a snug fit around the rails).

For me, I rest the heel of my shoe on the ridge where the dloor comes up. Without protection there, the mats are not as worthy. The tux cones up and over the ridge?

Yes, there was really no attempt to provide carpet protection next to the gas pedal.
