I've had the fronts in storage since I got the car so the passenger one has a mild crease to it that should settle out; never really noticed how curvy the rear ones are though.

I have some pictures of them sitting in the car but it's hard to see that they're actually a proper fit because making out the contours of the floor relative to the mat is difficult.

I don't think I got the orientation of the rear mats right in the picture...

~edit~

Got my first quote in today on duplicating the mats, looks to be in the $200 range without embroidery.
The guy's supplier is worried that he's going to have to license the "celica" or "GT-Four" from Toyota and they won't put it on the mats unless it's legit.
I asked him to see if any other supplier would do it and still he said they won't.

Looks like this could be the end of the line for embroidered mats :(

Yeh, 200 bucks is a bit steep for mats, even if you can afford them.

Yeah, its way too steep for reproduction mats.

I've got calls in with a few other places to see what they can do.

My front mats have part numbers on them but they don't really exist in any epc type thing that i've tried them in...

I'd take a set in RHD, but certainly not at anything approaching US$200 !!!

I sorta gave up after contacting 8 places and hearing the same thing over and over again - quotes of $200-500/set of 4 without embroidery unless Toyota agrees :(

If there really is enough demand for these I'd consider renting an serger and doing it myself.

the factory floor mats are discontinued at the dealership & there are none in stock hiding anywhere, at least not anywhere I can find.

the only options are to have some made or cut your own set to fit from larger mats.

part numbers on the mats are weird and unlike the rest of the Toyota part numbers, I'll post them here later if that's any consolation.

Going to look more seriously at producing these myself when I get some spare time this week.

Several years back we had a group buy going (Frank Dillman?) and the mats cost about 80. Unfortunately the company that made them was no longer interested in making them after the second group buy. I still have some of them if someone wants to buy a set to use as a pattern.
Think I have an extra set in black and maybe blue. Pretty sure I should keep the grey set.

Hey guys, I found these on ebay last night;

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyota-S ... 3f0cfdaac4


If the maker is willing to embroider supra with its font on them then they might do ones for our cars.

They have a website as well, any of the Avery brands listed dont seem to have a problem when entering in things like Celica for embroidery. The Lloyd brand ones dont let you use trademarks though.

Might be a good avenue to look into. I'll be getting some from that site for my AT eventually.
