Default Floor mats

My floor mats are bad, beyond repair...I want to get some new ones but I can't find anything that'* the quality I want made for my car. Something nice but not overpriced, a good quality carpet (maybe a bit of rubber for the high wear areas). Does anyone here have a good idea as to where to get some, or should I just go w/ universal.
Note: Tan leather interior.

I got new originals off ebay as well as several other members here. Good price too.

If your looking for something a little more extreme for the winter snow and salt the go with a husky liner or extreme liner. I got extreme liners for my truck and they fit great and hold a ton of water and debris

Make your own.

I used the ribbed matts that you see when walking in buildings.

I'm in southern california, we only get the yearly rain and dust (where I'm at). I'm thinking of going with just some original style ones.

Not sure if the seller still has any but at the time he had lots.
You can find the ebay link from here.

I just ordered a set of floor mats for my car from the local pontiac dealer, the parts guy assured me they are exactly the same as the original carpeted mats. Set of 4 for $47, I should get them in the next couple of days I can let you know when I get them if they are the exact same as the originals, this is also for the tan interior. I also ordered the kickpanel trim pieces for my car too the drivers side comes in the tan color but the passenger side was only in gray, will have to paint to match

I got my floormats from the dealer. They are exactly the same size and shape as the original mats and the carpet looks to be the same quality as well. The only differences I found is on the drivers side mat the original one has in the upper right corner the border around the edge of the mat stops and it goes flat, whereas on the new one the bordrer goes completey around, which is no big deal. Though the new mats are so new and clean they're a bit lighter in color than my carpet. The color does match it just means I need to clean my carpet again.

I also found out that the original full carpet is still available for $500, I wonder if it could be ordered cheaper from GM parts direct?
