    Default Luxurious automotive carpet.

    In BMW's and MB's I have owned they had very nice deep soft pile carpets. i have visited some co's but I am disappointed with what I have found to date. Google does not help much. Who knows where to get such top quality luxury carpet?

    I do yes but only when not an issue. When fishing or off roading I will put the old ones in. Even with shoes on you can feel the difference though.

    Try the aeronautical trimmers and upholsterers/suppliers. But pricey.

    When I was making an obscene amount of cash with aeroplane valets, I needed to insure each job for >R1mio. The carpet in a Lear Jet in those days was R120k. About 7 foot of it. Pure wool.

    So would wool be the "material" to go for? What would second best then? Any one know what BMW & MB use?

    I suppose the next best option would be to go to the breakers and grab a carpet out of one new MB or BM or Audi that was wrapped around the tree.
