I picked up the all-weather front mats for the SG Forester-

They come with some sort of hook (?) whcih i'm guessing is to secure the mats, but i dont see where this is supposed to go. Anybody have a shot how the hook attaches to the vehicle?

Wow those Husky liners look just like what I need.

Does anyone know how to get those over here (UK)? Or if it came down to importing them, would they fit RH drive cars?

I like the Husky design because it has that "lip" along the sides BUT the OEM mats are grooved so if you get snow/slush/water in the car, it sinks between the grooves and keeps your feet from slushing around in the mess. No I can't decide which one to get:confused:

Dammit, why do I have to analyze every little thing:roll:

Yeah, the Subaru mats are a bargin for all 4 at $40. I paid about $130 for the Husky front and rear. My main reason for the Husky Liner is that it's easy to clean and has a good lip to hold junk in. I just wipe them with a damp rag.

I'm in a warm area so I don't need grooves for snow/mud or water. My main mess is grass and that sand that sticks to shoes from parking lots. The rear I like for covering the hump. The Huskyliners are thin but I've never had one wear out or had any holes develop.

If you're around a lot of snow, mud or wet stuff a lot, I'd get the Subaru mats.

I'll look at the catalog but for the record- it kinds sucks! Searching for a part is so non-intuitive- and I have searched through dozens and dozens of catalogs online.

It does help when I go to the home page and search by vehicle but then I end up with two carts. I don't know if I have the patience for this :)

I've been using the OEM rubber mats all winter. I love them. They are plenty deep to hold all the snow on my boots after snowboarding, and it is much easier to shake the pine needles from them then the carpet mats. You can't beat the price Subiegal has them for either. That's where I got mine :)
