To everyone who reads this, these really are the best mats going for our cars. I just happen to be the first one to order STS-V mats and we realized the V floor pan is different than the standard STS. Needless to say, the correct floor pattern was gotten by Car Motorsports and my mats are getting sent back to get recut.

Thanks for the great customer service Rich, I look forward to getting the proper fitting mats in my car...finally!

Thanks again.

Keith, I have a question for you regarding the color match to the factory interior.

I have an STS-V with the Black and Red interior, and I would like to get mats like this for my car. I am concerned, however, that the colors of the mats might not match the car.

What color is the interior of your car, and how well do their colors match the factory carpet?

Thanks,
Dale Hemrick

Dale, the Charcoal color from Car Motorsports matches the Ebony color of the STS-V almost perfectly.

But listen, this is important. Insist on the Charcoal. There are some guys at Car Morotsports that get the CTS-V and STS-V colors mixed up. the CTS-V ebony color interior is far different than the STS-V and they may recommend you go with Quicksilver to match. Do not get Quicksilver to match the STS-V ebony, it just won't match well. Charcoal is the way to go.

Hope that helped.

Excellent! Thanks so much, Keith! I really appreciate the advice. It is so nice to have a group of people this involved and knowledgeable about such a specific car.

I'll be placing my order soon.

Thanks,

You might want to hold on just a bit. I saw pics of Keith's and they look great, but he told me that if he had the opportunity to see the samples, he might have gotten a different color border. You can't go wrong with the mats just like Keith had them made, but just in case you wanted another option. I have asked CarMotorsports to send me the samples, but alas, I have not received them yet. I actually e-mailed them again yesterday....

By the way, as Keith learned for all of us, the STS-V mat is different from the STS mat. I ordered some weathertech mats (made for STS/STS-V) to keep in my trunk in case I have to go somewhere and my feet get muddy. I tried to fit them in the car and they are a bit too large because of the transmission tunnel being larger in our car. Its fine for a temporary mat, but make sure any mats you buy that you want to fit perfectly, they have to be made for the STS-V.

Fred, I did say that if you want something a little different, try the charcoal with the black border. It will not match as well as the charcoal with charcoal border, but I thought it may look cool.

It all depends on the look you want. If you want to match, get the charcoal/charcoal. If you want it to not match, but maybe still look good, you can try another color.

Fred, don't mess around with the email. Call and talk to Rich.

And yes, I was the guiney pig with the STS mats not fitting our V's, but Car Motorsports has it all straightened out now and any new orders will fit perfectly.

Hope I helped.

I'm actually thinking about getting the charcoal with a red border.

I currently also have a collectors series 02 Eldorado with the red and black two tone leather interior, and I have very similar mats from another company that are black with the red border. They look VERY sharp in that car, and I wanted to duplicate that look in the STS-V since I have the red and black interior there as well.

I wonder if the red stitching on the border that they use is a close enough match to the red on the interior of STS-V? I agree that the charcoal with the black binding would also look very sharp.

Call them, talk to Rich. Ask him to send you samples of the red. You can see them on the website, but they don't give you true colors. Rich will hook you up, make sure you talk to him.

I couldn't agree more. From experience, talk to Rich and get samples first. I had a trunk mat in my CTS-V and was sorry that I didn't get samples first. It looked great but did could have matched color better.

By the way, my mat didn't fit when I first got it. I took pictures and sent them along with the mat. They re-cut it and got it right!

Unfortunately, it does not fit in the STS-V so I am ordering again. This time I have my samples in hand and have matched the color I want to the trunk. I am just waiting for them to call me back.

I also purchased their Sunshade for my CTS-V, TA and GTO. They really make the difference keeping the sun off of the steering wheel and dash as well as keeping it a little cooler inside. We need all of the help we can get in the Texas summer heat!

Finally talked to them today (very hard to reach - they have "limited phone time"). I ordered a tunk mat with the V in the middle - the Ebony colored swatch matched the tunk interior the best. Now the wait begins...

Folks, I am really not happy with these guys. First, it took waaay too long to reach them and when I finally did, they did not sent the order confirmation as they said they would? The prices Alan posted on this forum are higher than those posted on their web site.

This is really crappy service - I CANCELLED MY ORDER! I will not deal with these guys again!

Rich asked me to post that he can still supply all of the products you know from the fist post in this thread. He is just not with Car Motorsports any longer and will be announcing another company soon. Give him a call if you want more info...

OK. I just got the samples last week. Keith is exactly right. The Charcoal is the correct color and the Quicksilver is a bit greyer. I just got off the phone with Rich. Really a great guy. My mats are on the way!!

And yes, Rich is a stand up guy.

He is working for himself. To make a long story short, he severed his relationship from the other folks at Car Motorsports and will be introducing a new company soon with much of the same products and more (leather mats!). He still has access to all of the products though since they sourced much of it (such as mats) from the suppliers. In the meantime, he wanted me to post his contact info as a courtesy to those on the forum.
