Floor Mats

Post by Xarano »

Wanted to recommend https://autostyle.co.uk as a great source of high quality floor mats.

After finding out that Mazda doesn't produce the R3 style floor mats anymore, and wanted to charge £60 for the standard RX8 ones, I looked around and found the above site.

They let you upload a custom logo to use and they'll embroider it on for you!

They were £72, barely more than Mazda, and I get to keep my R3 logo, along with including a heel pad and Red border to match the R3s red stitch.

Also, as I could not find a high quality version of the R3 logo anywhere online, I created one myself to send to them.

Anyone feel free to grab it below:

Any OC member can set-up a group buy.

The more complex version involves them taking orders, handling the money and distributing the goods.

The far simpler version has them contacting the supplier, negotiating a special price based on an expected minimum volume of orders, and then advising other members how to place the orders directly at that price.

There are variations in-between but my preference is always towards the latter, as it's then not necessary to have a firm cut-off date, or maximum quantity. As a process it also lends itself much better to anything that involves customisation and simplifies any potential warranty issues.

The even simpler option is just to negotiate an OC members discount (usually a code) which is promoted in the Members Discount section. Again these discussions with suppliers can be undertaken by any member, though it very much helps if you're already an existing customer. Some suppliers have been known to provide a retrospective discount (partial refund or some freebie) to the negotiator, depending on the ongoing take-up of the offer.

I just uploaded the image as I have put it in the post, and got what you see in my pictures. So I guess so!
