Well if you can't afford new floor mats from the dealer .there is an easy solution ..............just touch them up ,
in my case mine where fine just as many of you know i swapped my Red SE leather for some 07 GT black leather interior so the only thing left in my interior that was red was the tiburon lettered floor mats

here what you need go to craft store...and find a fabric paint marker there are many colors to choose from. mine was an Elmers product, i chose silver as they didn't have the right blue i checked two stores use the marker to touch up your lettering and get black fabric spray paint to touch up the rest of the floor mats i did on the edges to get rid of the red stitching .

another thing i ended up doin to my floor mats which do at your own risk, i pressure washed them til the brown stopped coming outta them. then i took a propaine torch while it was still wet and i went all over the mat with it. All of the frizzies and loose carpeting got melted/burned off (even on the edge). i did NO damage to the mats themselves and they cleaned up the look a quite a bit. especially where my heel rests under the gas pedal.

(sorry for the hijack)

No idea why I didn't think of this before. damn good idea and it turned out great! So does the stuff wear off on your shoes or anything? I'd hate to accidentally track that in my house.
