Default Weathertech floor liners?

Has anyone gotten these for their 2014 Q5? Are you happy with them?

I got them for my wife's Q5. It's a must with 2 kids. We also got the matching cargo liner. When I first got the weathertech for my car, she wasn't sold on the all season mats over the oem carpet ones. After seeing them in my car she was sold!

I just wished the rear seat ones covered the hump like it does in my CTTS.

I'm hoping to get them before a road trip with a 5yo! Kids and winter snow make me want them.

We also picked up an Audi Rear Seat Cover. It catches most of the stuff the kids drop. It goes all the way down to the mats so we tuck the cover under the mats.

Here are a couple shots I took with my phone:

Functionally they are awesome and a cinch to clean with the same soap you use to wash the car. The only drawback is they don't feel as good as carpet when you take your shoes off (as a passenger of course).

Any Canadian owners of SQ5's ordered these for their cars? if so online is best method, was wondering if they sell these at local auto stores.

You might want to check their site for a list of Canadian Dealers.. Keep in mind the dealer may or may nor carry the model needed for your car. Ordering online is usually cheaper, especially if you can find a site that offers free shipping.

Are those the audi weather mats? Do you put them over the own carpet mats? Did anyone get the rubber trunk liner?

Those are WeatherTech Floor Liners and not OEM Audi All Weather Mats. I have those as well as the the rubber trunk liner from WeatherTech as well.

The ones in the photograph are the Digital fit mats. They take the place of the carpet mats. The main drawback of the OEM winter mats is they have little to no lip around the edge, so if you track significant snow into the vehicle for example, the snow will melt and will likely leak onto the carpet when you're accelerating and braking (this is from someone else's perspective who owns the OEM winter mats on a different car).

I ordered these for my A4 online in Canada directly from WeatherTech and had no issues - will do so for my 15 Q5 3.0 (once it is delivered!).

I agree. I found that the OEM winter mats didn't cover much of the area on the drivers side front seat under the pedals, and coming from a winter climate, the carpet would be coated in salt before the season was over.

I agree, but the OEM trunk mat is better than Weathertech.

Get floors liners from WT, but trunk mat at your Audi dealership (or online).

What do you like about the OEM trunk mat compared to the weathertech?

Better fitment. Always prefer OEM products if possible.
4 holes can be made to keep using attach points for nets or else.
Easier to clean when dirty.

All-weather mats choice seems more controversial between Audi's and WT's, but for cargo mat, people in general seems to prefer OEM.

I could be wrong, but my preference is : WT liners, and OEM cargo mat.

WeatherTech front and rear and cargo area in the Q, front's only in my wife's A3, and my daughters car as well. Great fit, easy to clean. Cargo area retains the four tie down spots on the cargo floor, and 1" lip keeps the wet stuff on the mat.

I liked them better than what Audi was offering.

I've found nothing better for keeping the white salt ring out of the footwells in a Canadian winter.
