Default S8 logo floormat (fußmatten) install

Well I finally got around to installing the S8 logo floormats I had delivered to me this past Christmas from a friend who was visiting from Germany. I found these on ebay.de, he purchased and flew them over with him. I tried looking for the original person with the listing, I was unsuccessful.
These mats arrived without holes or retaining clips, which I recently obtained from Jim Ellis Audi. 8E08645214PK is the cap part # .95ea. 8E0864523B41 is the lower part # .47ea.
I basically lined up the old mats on top of the new mats, punched a line-up hole through the new mats and cut out the holes for the caps. Installed the caps and securing anchors, installed the mats.
Mats were I believe €100 give or take. Quality is 9 of 10, fitment is 9 of 10. The rears seem just a tad wide going under the seat. Fronts fit perfect.

Nice job, by any chance do you still have your original mats? If you'd like to sell, I need a set of black OEM mats...my car came without any.

That's unusual. An S8 with an SE, 4 spoke steering wheel. Is it heated by any chance?

That's is very normal and cost extra money:

You could use retaining clips from old mats, unless the there very worn out .......

I see that I got mine from the same manufacturer Jörg, 'Jwspecials'. He told that D3 S8's has two different securing anchors places (this was very strange to me) so that's why he doesn't make holes in the mats. Anyhow after I was quoted 600 EUR for OEM ones for mine S8 with Audi Exclusive interior where the difference is only leather edging on the mats these ones for 100 EUR with very nice embroidered logo in the corner is way better option.

At the same time I bought another new OEM mats for 120 EUR and made leather edging (cost 15 EUR ) Gonna use them during winter time, don't want get dirty S8 logo





P.S> in last two pictures first mat is OEM 'Exclusive' which came with a car, second - new OEM simple with home made leather edging and third one new with S8 logo from 'Jwspecials'.

Thanks everyone. Pleased with them so far except the fact that I go nuts when passengers are in the car, jet black so I have to shake them out constantly.
@mike141 I will be keeping the old factory ones for now.
@soulminer yes it is heated, came with the car. The only thing I can tell that this S8 did not come with was lane assist.
@gedis080 I believe that we do have the same manufacturer for the mats. They did offer different colors and piping. I thought about going with a silver piping at first, but declined. Black seems to show the dirt wayyy too much, I am thinking of a charcoal grey for another set. I like the piping on yours as well as your interior options. Is 'Jwspecials' still making these?
*edit* I did a search and found him on ebay.de. No current listings for Audi or S8 at the moment.

I have checked as well .... and was surprised

http://stores.ebay.de/JW-SPECIALS/Au...4.l1513&_pgn=1

I suspect some kind of problems with authorities because there no left even one set of mats with car model logo and before use to be available for a most Audi models with logo embroidered....
I fully agree that black colour is showing dirt too much and charcoal grey would be much better and closer to original colour or even the same.

I agree.... copyright infringement or something. Still I am sure if contacted directly he may be able to make something up.
thanks again for his information.

Love the S8 logo on the mats.
Now, a bit off topic:
The mats were worn on my 2008 S8. I originally looked for mats with the S8 logo but couldn't find any so I replaced them with mats from Lloyds. The first set of mats were "black" and were supposed to match the interior, well as you can see from your photos the carpeting is more of a graphite.
I contacted Autoanything, the company I purchased them from, and they sent me another set of graphite mats (which match perfectly) at no charge and told me to keep the original set.
I highly recommend AutoAnything, excellent customer service.

Thanks @TFT
I'm surprised that Audi themselves would not offer anything like this. Black looks great but if course any little bit of dirt shows up. I too would have chosen a charcoal grey (or similar) with offsetting piping (black, red etc.).
I'll definitely check out auto anything for front ones. My stock drivers one has a hole and I sure as heck won't be running these mats in the winter.

I'm resurrecting this one….

I also apologize for highjacking the thread.

When I bought my car the original mats had a hole in them from the previous owner. When I saw this post, I instantly realized, if I planned to replace my mats the S8 logo mats were the way I wanted to go. I contacted the maker directly and worked something out. Please be advised, there is a language barrier, but Google translate works wonders, and shipping time is well over a month.

Now, on to the reason for my post: When the new mats arrived, they did not fit. Can you guys tell me which model year, if any, the mats he sent me will fit?

PS. The manufacture acknowledged using the wrong template and is sending me a new set free of charge.

Congrats on being able to get in touch with the manufacturer and getting him to make some for you. Stinks that the incorrect ones showed up, but fatastic he is sending another set.

This is indeed good news. I had reached out to said manufacturer before and he wasn't willing to assist, although I would guess it might have something to do with using EBay as a medium of communication. The mats will look great, once you have the right set! Thanks for the update!

good to see that he is still making them with OEM logos, I can`t see them on eBay anymore. Anyhow it is good news for few of my prehistoric Audis which needs proper mats with adequate logos as well :-)

Jeff,
I'm trying to get in touch ( with apparently no luck) with the seller (no language barrier since I've lived there) for a set of S8 mats, could you please help.
Thanks,
Dan
