He said there is some versatility with the 'S' wants to keep to original logo. Look great don't they. Kris will be happy :)

That is great news, Nick. It's taken less than the stated 14 days too. :D

Yes yours must be on it’s way as well Andrew , so it will not be long yes at some sorting office all these matts . Anybody with beer cloths now will be saying you want to get one of the dash matts .
For £45 you can’t go wrong really I just hope it’s not to long for the boot . As the dash is all the way across the car and the boot must be smaller . Just a thought .

Hi chaps, look what I got from postie just now !! :D

Well I have to say my cool mat is STUNNING !!!

Even better in the flesh and you can really see and feel the quality. The slightly but very noticable cushioned backing really gives it that extra bit of luxury rather than if it was just a plain backing and the embroidary is stunning and they have the 'laser' logo spot on !!! The edges are trimmed to a very good standard too.

Mine as you can see is the Black one which really looks sooooo 'cool' and really makes the logo 'pop' out at you. I am so happy with mine :)

Full credit to Colin and his team at Cool Mats for not only getting the design spot on but to a very high standard too.

So here are a few pics. The very lightweight creases are from being in a jiffy bag but Colin said these will fall out after lying flat for a few days. Will post up some pics when fitted too.

But for now here are some straight out of the bag :wave:

Hi Nick,
Looks great, mine came rolled inside a tube iirc :?
Great quality and as I mentioned to Andrew recently, I can't imagine they are making a huge profit on each mat with material and postage.....

Window sill mat :headscratch: There's an idea :cheers:

As Young nick has pointed out I also got mine today and it’s great will roll the mat and keep in the glove box .
But yes a credit to Colin at Cool Mats it’s a great part to the Capri and so easy to just put on the dash .

Picture of new Matt will also post some up when fitted .

I went for the grey and it’s spot on with the dash .

Andy...give me a chance fella...I am trying to sneak mine out of the wardrobe as the wife does not know I have bought this :shock: :wave: :lol: :lol:

By the time I get home from this duty its dark so will not do it any justice. Jason methinks will beat me too it :)

Have loosely rolled my cool mat up and the very light creases from transit are falling out already. Its a very good quality material ! I really like the cushioned backing too which Colin from Cool Mat told me is a new feature only added very recently. It gives the mat a nice feel.

All the best

I’m glad this has been added. Was impressed with quality of Andy’s Sierra one. I’ll have to get one too, it’s on my Christmas list :D

My dash has more cracks than a strip club or building site, so don't think I need one of these but they do look awesome!
