    Any experience with Lloyd’s floor mats?

    I was thinking about buying a set from them as I know they are the best aftermarket ones you can get. A buddy of mine used to work at a Porsche shop where they restored 914s and old 911s and they got all their mats from them. They offer a set for the 8 series but unfortunately bmw doesn’t license to them so they can’t sew an 8 on it or any BMW likeness for me. But I would still like some even if they’re plain.

    My concern was the lack of bmw specific hold downs for them. All the Porsche ones had the proper hold downs but they license to them. Has anyone ordered a set from them for any bmw and did they have the hold downs? I can’t seem to get in touch with anyone on the phone there either to ask them.

    I have a set. They do have BMW correct hold downs, although there are two types of BMW hold downs, and the style they used weren't the same kind that I had (but they were easily and cheaply changed).

    Although they won't put either 'BMW' or the BMW logo on the mats, I was able to get '850Ci' embroidered on mine. The logo is large, and centered in the mat as opposed to being along the side edge as is the case with stock mats. Also, the carpet pile is larger and looser than stock, although the color was a good match.
    .
    However, I ordered them because Nojser, whom everyone said made the best mats, was no longer making them. But about a week after I received my Lloyds mats, he announced that he was taking orders for one last run, so I ordered a set from him. I don't know if he is truly finished, or can be talked into making more, but his are better in my opinion. The embroidery is positioned properly, and the carpet pile is much closer to the stock mats. The only negative thing I can say about his mats are that the color is a little darker than the stock color, but they still look good. I've got the virtually new Lloyds mats on the shelf in my garage, and am using Nojser's mats. If you don't know who I'm talking about, do a forum search and you'll find several discussions about his mats.

    I tried ordering from that guy as well but he had quit making them. I last saw he plans to start making them again this year but I’d like to have some in the mean time so I don’t mess my carpet up

    I have bought their trunk mats for various cars. Really think nice quality. I'd assume they use the same material for the floor mats.

    Yeah I’m just going to have to sort through their options and see which one is closest to OEM style. They’ve got some they advertise as thicker and more luxurious and all that. Just want stock haha

    That would be sweet I wonder how many people would be interested given the fact that Nojser is gonna start selling them again and people seem to like him the most. Plus he can do bmw logos and what not.

    I talked them and they just flat out said no. Lady on the phone was kind of short so I guess there goes that.

    i would call back and see if you can get a different person on the phone and maybe get a different answer. I was really hoping he would start making them again : (

    Not the same guy. I’m talking about Lloyd’s. Nojser has already said he may start making them again later this year. We were talking about a group buy from Lloyd’s

    I think the issue is using a trademarked name or logo. A guy in Poland might get away with it, but a company like Lloyds won't go anywhere near it.

    We weren’t going to ask them for that. Just wanted a group buy deal on plain Jane floor mats for the E31.

    Oh my god y’all lol. Read. Lloyd’s floor mats will not do a group buy. Told me to eat a dick. That’s all the group buy request was about.
