Just don't go for the pink with floral design !!

Although green with daisey pattern might go well with the green car ??

I have three sets of mats. One that I think were with the car from new. Grey heavy ribbed. Serviceable but uninspiring. An ebay set that are OK but the wrong colour red and a set that I bought second hand from another ex SLK owner
