I got the dealer to provide i30 mats when I bought my car. They look good and the driver's mat has the i30 logo. Although I have only done 8500 miles in 8 months, holes are appearing in the driver's mat where my heels come into contact with the mat. Have other drivers had the same experience?

Has anyone any suggestions as to any material which could be attached underneath the mat to enable me to keep using the driver's mat? or will I need to replace it?

When I bought my i30 I though the dealer mats were pricey and previous experience on another car of these fabric type mats had showed me how the heel digs a hole rather easily. Unless a manfr decides to reinforce then with Kevlar, this will always be so!

So I bought much cheaper but sturdy ones:

at £23 delivered. You have to correspond with the seller to specify exactly where the floor hooks on your model are placed as it varies according to specific i30 model and date of purchase.

At this price of £23 I would just replace, but the possibility of replacing just the driver's mat at a sort-of pro rata price would be brilliant (and more environmental)!

One other thing: Since they are more comfy for office wear, my main driving shoes have rounded heels. This will probably extend the life of the mats a bit.

Thanks for the helpful reply. I have the standard carpet mats which were provided as part of the deal when I bought the car.

I'll phone the firm you mentioned on Monday and I'll see if they will sell just the driver's mat - it's worth a try as the worst they can say is "no". If they are willing just to sell the one mat, Ill let you know.
