Well, mid-way through their second winter, my cheap, eBay, China-direct floor liners have thrown in the towel. All I needed from them was 2.5 winters before lease turn-in, but they have fallen well short.
As you can see in the attached picture, when I went to pull the driver's side liner for a wipe-down, I noticed the spot where my heel rests has worn through the top layer of vinyl, exposing the padding.
So although they were only $85 for the full coverage set front and rear, I have to say that these proved to not be a good deal, a classic case of "you get what you pay for." I mean, I don't even keep these in all year 'round, just during the winter months, so these have maybe 6 or 7 months of total use. I do make many frequent, short trips, so perhaps my usage is a bit unusual in that regard and put additional wear on the mats, but still I'd expect better durability.
Of course, the failure mode speaks to generic patterning rather than specific vehicle design; I think had the manufacturer tried it out, they'd have found no one's heel actually lands on the heel pad where it's positioned. Providing extra durability is precisely the function of the heel pad, so this is simply a design failure.
I'll rock these through to Spring, and then toss in that other waste of money floor mat set, the rubber factory Giulia ones, for December '19 and January '20 when I turn this car in. I'll choose more wisely for my next Giulia, and probably go with the similar Luxus floor liners from Madness, since I do like the quilted style, and hope the heel pad is better positioned (as it appears to be from the pic I posted upthread). Those or Tuxmat...we'll see.
