I've heard the cloth floor mats in Subies get messed up pretty easily.  I'm in the same boat as you guys, though.  Got the All-weather mats and kept my stock cloth mats stowed away.

I like cloth for the summer and rubber for the winter. I swap mine when I swap tires.
the bottom line is this, people just need to realize that when they buy cheap CO's [KW on down], they are buying cheap, poorly engineered shocks for the sake of having height adjust-ability. - whitetiger on legacygt.com

I much more prefer carpet mats.  I change cars for the rainy/snowy weather.  I only put rubber mats in my wifes car over winter because she doesn't take care of her car.

i have this theory that says if a womans room is really clean then their car is a complete mess but if her car is clean then her room is a mess. but a little off topic, i only have one car so i keep all weather mats in for the reason i dont want to keep switching between the two and i dont want the carpet ones to get all jacked up

I have both for my 12 WRX, but I haven't used the all weather yet.  Actually I'd prefer to sell these and get some from Weather Tech instead.

I have the carpet mats that I got with my car originally, as well as the rare blue ones with the STi logo on 'em that I only put in for shows. The regular ones get dirty fairly easy but I clean my car religiously. Some of you already know I don't drive it during the winter. =)

I have the black carpet mats that say STi on them in and then the all-weather mats on top of those year-round. Not sure why I have them both in actually, that's just how I've always done it with my cars. Maybe to keep the carpet ones clean but still there in case I need to show them off ;) The carpet mats are a lot nicer and look a lot better but I prefer not getting them dirty.

Stacking mats is usually blamed for stuck accelerators (Lexus, Ford, Toyota recalls).


The 2011 carpet mats in my car are awful. The driver's side one is worn through the carpet into the actual mat itself underneath my gas pedal...all from normal driving.

Swapped to winter mode yesterday. Snow tires, rubber mats, and topped off the washer fluid with de-icer.
