Carpet set

I need a full carpet set in a colour of my choice, any recommendations for a supplier of quality carpets for a Plus 2 that fit properly?

I'd have a chat with Sue Miller.

Only thing is, she never found a match for the light sable carpets fitted to the cars with Oatmeal interiors.

Yes, I was going to call her, have you bought carpets from her, did they fit well? The trimmer doing my interior reckons that none of these pre made carpets fit very well and recommends I have them tailored for the car.

No, I am making do with my 47 year old rags!

It helps that I have good quality fitted mats in there but the side walls look a bit grubby. I did talk to Sue about her carpets and she says they are accurately cut and bound. So while in general I agree with your trimmer (I've experienced low quality carpets in a classic before now) I think you can trust Mrs Miller.
