Anybody ever upgrade their carpet?
Has anyone changed out their factory grade carpeting for something more luxurious? Available is the "Essex" grade carpeting from ACC and sold through their network. These are still molded replacement sets, and seem like a good improvement for being a relatively inexpensive upgrade, though the color choices are pretty limited.
I'm more wondering about going to a wool carpeting such as Wilton, which would have to be cut and sewn to the vehicle instead of molded. Between the much higher carpet prices, there would also be the much higher labor prices. The benefit would be the same rich carpeting used by Rolls Royce and many exotics. It also wears much better than the poly carpets. And finally, since it is a cut and sewn product, one could choose edging or piping in an infinite number of colors of thread or leather or vinyl for an extra custom look.
So has anyone done this, or looked into it?
