Essentially car mats can be of great use especially for a nice new modern vehicle. They can help to keep your motor interior clean and respectable. Which is all important if you commute with friends and family on a regular basis. Without doubt there is such a vast selection of different types in the public arena ranging from
- generic types you would commonly find on the high street
- expensive branded mats only usually available from the dealer that sold you the vehicle
- online from a car mats retailer that quite possibly manufactures the mats themselves.
- from a local car boot sale or even garage sale and clearance auction
But what are you really effectively getting from your exchange of money? Are you getting value for your pound?
Or simply a simple product to give you the most basic of protection against dirt and filth in the most native and primate of forms.
Whilst there is much in the way of rubber matting to indicate quality and a sense of worth of purchase mats can be a whole different ball game. Maybe one of the main attributable factor is that of itss thickness and feel. Another telltale sign of quality, whether good or bad, is the smell or odour that can be released from the mats. However from plastics such as mud flaps it is a much more straight forward process since these are not from compounds that are compressed in a same way as rubber matting.

The feel and look or appearance of rubber and rubber related products is quite unique in nature to anything else you can generally find. I like its raw texture and the fact that it is valuable yet not intrinsically that much of worth to the masses on the outset. But with raw rubber prices soaring through the roof, it is a commodity yet to really see its value settle down. Essentially a natural finite product or material.. let us use it wisely and cherish it for all its benefits and purposes of usage.
