RE: OEM vs. generic floormats ('90 V8Q)
I give the highest recommendation to the Cannon mats. I have had a set
in my Benz for about 8 years, and they appear indestructible. I just
bought a set for the V8 and the fronts fit pretty well. The backs are
going to go back: either I received the wrong size, or Cannon thinks
there is a lot more footroom back there than there is.
