World Carpet seems to have decent pricing but it appears it's got to be glued down. Are there alternatives?

You can still get Anthracite and Natural carpet from the dealer. Absolute cinch to install, no holes to cut and it all lines up perfectly. About $300 for the set, which is very competitive to the a/mkt stuff, most of which requires trimming and cutting the holes for seats and e brake, etc. Al's work seems to be awesome, but his carpets are cut and sewn, not molded.We haven't heard from Al in a while.Who ran him off??

Al is on mye28.com a fair amount and I can try catching him there. I was of the assumption that OEM carpet was NLA, guess not!

I got one of the World type molded carpets and it was an absolute piece of crap to fit. Go to the dealer.

Hey Guys,

I'm still kicking, just haven't been here for a while. Every time I tried to login, it was freezing up. Plus, been so busy, my internet time is limted.

Anyway, we do have an E21 pattern, but it is for a multi piece set, indeed. Also, we're in a holding pattern right now, and not taking any new orders until later this year.

Al

My friend got his carpet maker to do a set like MB's which u can lift and remove the foot areas to check for leaks and rust. I like this idea and I will od that should I need to replace the carpet.
