996 floor mats

This is about floor mats. I have fallen for the over-promoted [xyzabc] mats in three different Porsches and the data is in: these are fine for show, but not for daily use. Three major issues: (1) they wear out very fast, even with careful care. (2) the quick release connections fail constantly and do not lock up correctly because the injection moldings are too frail for the floor use and pressure from feet moving around. (3) The colors on the emblem designs are not fast and tend to bleed under normal use. This being said, I have found some really heavy, cheap deep ridged mats at Target that do the job for a fraction of the cost. No, they do not have the Emblems, but they work and preserve carpets, trap water and stay put! My two cents worth after some 30 years of playing the [xyzabc] game.
