Does anyone know of a source for factory carpet (or a reasonable facsimile)? I’m installing a Brey Krause harness mounting bar that installs between the rear shock towers and would prefer not to cut my original factory carpet. The OEM carpet part (996-551-033-00A10) that covers this area is attached to a piece of molded insulating foam, retails for $270 :o , and is on two month back order from Germany. I could buy a new one of those but am looking for a cheaper option, ie. just a plain piece of matching carpet that I can Velcro in place to cover the area that would otherwise be a bare metal shelf. Any suggestions?

Here is a pic of what Mike is talking about... it is actually the DME cover.

I think I would just go to a carpet store and find the closest match.

Will you be taking the bar out between events?

Thanks for posting the pic of your interior Loren. It shows exactly what I'm talking about. I will probably leave the entire assembly in the car between events during the season. The bar between the shock towers that you see in the pic below attaches to the three bolts atop each shock and is left in place, but the rest of the assembly can easily be removed. I'll probably do that in the off-season, or if I want to get in back to clean the window, need luggage space for a trip, etc. The installation in this Turbo is very clean (can't remember who sent me the pic some time back or I'd give them credit). I don't want something cheap looking, but I also wanted to avoid cutting up a piece of $270 carpet, which is why I thought I might be able to make something acceptable out of a piece of factory style carpet, if I could find a source. You know, have my cake and eat it too. In the long run though, if I want it to look right, I might just be better off buying the OEM piece. :rolleyes:

I too was looking for factory carpet for my sub box. I have a Savanna Beige interior and was having a hard time finding anything that matched closely. I contacted Car Audio Innovations in California. They hooked me up with their source for factory carpets, perhaps they will help you too. Good luck.
