    Do you have 2 pegs in the drivers carpet that do not align with these mats

    I have been in touch with the dealer and they say APE mats do not exist and that your mats are from the Grande Punto Abarth and not an exact fit for the Evo and will not lign up with the 2 pegs that are fitted from the factory

    Have you therefore put 2 additional holes in your carpet to secure your mats ?

    I have also been in touch with them and got told the absolute opposite and they were holding a set of APE mats for me as i have GPA ones in mine he even opened them to confirm the half mat for the passenger side HMMMM they were going to ring me back today at work but ive been off im not going to bother as the passenger GPA mat covers the shiny footrest and stops it getting scratched this is turning into another Abarth Weirdism LOL :thumb:

    don't see how ape mats would be different shape to AGP, they haven't made that many changes.

    does APE really have factory fitted pegs rather than standard fiat screw in fixings?

    i'm at the dealers tomorrow, i will investigate before breakfast :thumb:

    The APE has a slightly different shaped footwell and yes there are 2 pegs in the floor to locate the mat :thumb:

    yEs that is right Lloyd the floor pegs have a little nipple on the top and the female mat bit clips over said nipple
    and hence holds mat firm, i think abarth realised there mistake as the 500 only has one nipple,,  awww and 500 mats slides about.

    So they need to put 2 nipples in the 500 in future :thumb:

    Not had any problems - my mats are secure and don't move - fitted them when I got my 500 in June '09.

    I think it depends how hard you twist your nipple into the carpet.

    After reading this thread I'm still none the wiser on whether or not there are floor mats available for the APE.

    I got my white APE in October and was promised a set of mats as part of the deal and am still waiting for them dealer said they weren't available at the time I bought the car but they were expecting them to be available soon after I bought the car etc.

    If anyone actually has the proper APE mats fitted in their car can they let me know where I can get a set please and I can then get rid f the normal evo ones I've used for winter.

    Cheers

    Thanks for that info. Let's hope they get their finger out and have some available before spring :)
