I've seen those, they are cheap....... And nasty.

They are not the carpeting ones, it's like that horrible polypropoline type material.... But great if you want something for the wet, winter months I suppose - Better than nothing.

Really? I’m surprised, I have Genuine MG Rover mats in all my cars and I can assure you the one thing they are not is cheap or nasty.

They are the Genuine ‘Carpeting ones’ not one of the many fake sets sold as Genuine on eBay which I agree are cheap and nasty. These particular mats are very good quality, my 1999 T Reg. still has its original set which are still looking good after 13 years!

I'm not going to argue any further but there is 'Original' and 'Original' and I'm telling you right now that these are not the carpeted ones, the carpeted ones, (like I have) cost nothing less than £39.00 And if you don't believe me ask Reebs on the 'other' site!
You mark my words, buy these and see!

Was tempted to buy some, but on looking closer, these do seem a lot darker than mine (it does say "dark" I suppose) but also mine have a Rover logo and these don't... :confused:

Fair enough! (but I'd miss 'em if I didn't have 'em!)

There are a number of genuine ones. Some models were factory fitted, so there are factory originals. These didn't have a logo. I have three sets of these, one of which came with the car, another bought very recently to replace them, from South Lakes Minis.

I have another set which do have the logo, and are accessory parts from Rover, not factory original. These are known as premium mats, and are deeper nicer pile. I also suspect there may be accessory non-premium mats, ut I don't know.

The two types I have use different fixings. The accessory ones use turnbuckles like in the listing, the factory ones have little metal rings, and rectangular clips. The factory mats look just like the ones in the listing, apart from the fixings.

None of the ones I have are rubbish, but the premium set is noticeably nicer.

Before anyone thinks I must be some kind of millionaire with the mats at the prices being quoted, I didn't pay anything like these prices for any of them.

Most recent were the most expensive: these factory mats:
