When I got my 04 in december they weren't available. I just pried the locks off my stock mats and put them on the monsters, since i don't plan on swapping out the monsters for my cloth ones ever.

if you ordered the ones for the 04.5 they have the new oval posts.
lucky for me the wifey ordered these the same day I picked up the 4mo---

needless to say 10 days later my birthday surprise (she really got me this time) was installed in the 4mo when I came out for work...almost didn;t notice (had them in my MKIV for forever.. until I almost sat on the new 1.8t coffee mug!!!

gotta love a wifey who loves dubs as much as me....although she is wishing for a Touareg??!!!

How hard is it to pop those off, I have monster mats from my 02 and dont really feel like spending 80 bucks to replace them...Any tricks to getting them off?

I called Liberty VW to order the mats - I don't think they had an online ordering system. Liberty VW has a ClubB5 discount that is very generous. I have had no problem ordering parts through them. I think the mats were only $68 - that's about $30 cheaper than list! :thumbup:

RiverRipper popping them off the stock mats is easy, just slide something flat under. Popping them off the Monster Mats is a little worse, and putting the ovals ON the monster mats is a biatch. You have to stretch the rubber and use a lot of force.

I cannot see spending $80 for rubber mats> You can get nice ones aT Wally world for $14 for the front pair and about $5 for the rear pair. They also last for many many years.
Here is pic of the front

sorry, i like OEM stuff... :crazy:

You and your smart ass posts :roll: Fitment is good enough

I think it all depends where you live. Living in maine where we have snow season and mud season the 70 bucks I spent on my monster mats is worth it. The gaps with the generic ones will result in a lot more wear and tear and ruining of the carpeting than saving 50 bucks is worth.

1. Monster Mats are NOT shitty. I'm a construction worker with size 13's, and I have given my Monster Mats one solid year of HARD use. And I mean rough. To this day all they need is a quick spray with a garden hose to look brand new.
2. You're right, the new guy has a lot to say since the day he joined. I think he gets the award for the most :roll: ever used.
