    Signature White Leather, which Mats Lloyd's Luxe Black or Ebony?

    I've ordered signature white leather option and could use some advice on Mats.

    Lloyds Ultimate seems to be the favorite choice....
    I believe the carpet is normally black (judging from photo's and the Configurator) does Lloyds black match the interior?
    Also which other mats do you take, trunk and cargo well (what??)? and would Rubbertite be better for the Trunck?

    Thanks, J.

    If you want to match the existing black carpets with Lloydds, use "Black" for Ultimat and "Ebony" for Lux. You might also consider something like Flint II, a dark grey or even Euro Gray. Some dealers can get you color samples to check what looks good to you.

    Thanks did you get a change to personally compare the Luxe black and ebony with the interior black? Some say ebony is better some black as I can not get samples or compare myself I need to go by owners advice :)

    Many people have commented that the Lloyd Luxe ebony mats are somewhat green (I have some in my Audi, and I agree). I'd go with the black.

    Thanks Eelton for the advise, much appreciated.

    Any others who looked at both Lloyds Luxe - Ebony and Black and picked on or the other?

    I bought the Ebony and think it looks great even though it does not match the factory black exactly. Black would have been fine too.

    It does look great. Did you also look at the black when you made your decision, where those too black compared to the interior?

    I think the pure black is probably a better match. My main objection to black is that it may have shown dirt more easily.
