good to know. thanksIt seems most all of the dealers online sell ACC carpet. But, you will find quite a difference in advertised prices. I bought mine from Stock Interiors who sell ACC, and I found them to have the best price. I was very pleased with their service and turn-around time. The ACC carpet is very nice quality and fit. I have no complaint about ACC or Stock Interiors.
That's a good question. ACC makes the 4 speed carpet for coupes, but only the automatic carpet for four doors/wagons. That is why I bought one of each, so that I could cut the carpets in half, using the 4 speed coupe carpet up front, and the automatic four door/wagon carpet in the rear of my 4 speed wagon, with the seam running under the front seats. I agree with Aspen500 that I doubt it would work very well to try to use a heat gun. The carpet is fairly stiff, and has jute glued to the bottom of it. If you get the "mass backing" upgrade, I definitely think it would not work. Just not pliable enough. However, I did buy some "carpet by the yard" for the rear cargo area which has just as nice quality, but seems more pliable. I am thinking of trying to use a heat gun to mold the carpet over the rear wheel humps in the cargo area, but unfortunately have run out of spare time and good weather again. Hope to be back to it before too long. If you are interested, I have been posting a thread about carpet for the 4 speed wagons for a long time: Carpet for 4 speed wagonHas anybody tried to reshape a automatic carpet, with a heat heat gun to fit over the 4 speed hump?
My understanding it that the non "mass-backed" carpet is just like OEM including the jute backing. However, you would be wise to check with the vendor to be sure. I used Stock Interiors and found them to be VERY responsive and great to deal with.I just want to be clear before ordering.
