Just curious, do any of your Vel Satis' have a complete set of original floor mats/carpets?
When I bought mine a few years ago, it had 3 of the original carpets and one was missing (a rear one).
Over the years I've tried scrap/breakers yards to no avail, as the Vel Satises they are dismantling always seem to be carpet-less.
And apart from having bought another Vel Satis owner a set of original, dark-coloured carpets for his Vel Satis, I'm yet to find any beige ones as a spare set for mine :-(
I tried a Renault parts specialist and they said they could get them from France for £360 including postage, as they're so rare and also so heavy. But chances are, the mats from France would be for the facelifted Vel Satis and may not 100% fit my 53 plate anyway.
The originals were made by Collins & Aikman, according to the label. The company is part of a multinational group, but when I contacted them ages ago, they couldn't help.
Anyway, photo attached for reference, of what the original Vel Satis carpets look like (albeit from a LHD one).
