You sure you wanna go with Lexus OEM winter mats.

They run you back atleast $140

I just bought some mats from crappy tire and they fit just fine in my IS3

the IS250 RWD mats look nice, fit perfect (even better then IS300 mats) and are well priced. I run them in both my IS300's. They're awesome.

I have those Michelin ones from Costco. Super heavy duty rubber, and do me just fine for the last few seasons.

Has anybody tried those mats from Canadian Tire that pin themselves to the car? To prevent the mat from slipping... they have these discs in them that have pins at an angle. Once you put the mat in the car... you turn the disc and it essentially pushes the pin into the car's interior carpeting... thus keeping the mats in place. Good idea... but I'm worried about pinning things to the car's interior.

Here's another interesting one... the TRACTION MAT. It works like a regular winter mat... but the underside is covered with aluminum studs. So if you get stuck in the snow... you can put the mat under the stuck wheel to try and get the car moving!

Canadian Tire

that is SICK

i got the "all-weather mats" from sewell-lexus. front and rear was less than 100 bucks.

They fit great and do the job. never had the problem with the water spilling over.

specially with my car since it's a 5spd, i was critical with the fitment.

i was in a toss up with these or the "winter mats" we get here.

if i read right, the all weather mats were the factory/dealer option in the states and was actually made by toyota.

the winter mats were made for the canadian market, i think by a 3rd party manufacturer. so the fitment wasn't as good, mostly in the rear.

I'm not sure if those are fitted for the IS. The insturctions seems to indicate some trimming for both the front and rear are needed.. Check the PDF link. It is the floor liner line that was formed to fit. However, they no longer offer the floor liner for the IS. I have been looking as well. Check out the below link for a sample 03 Toyota Camry floor liner.

Check this out... this is sick, i wonder if they are sold in Canada. Made for custom fit in the IS300 or whatever vehicle you own

These look like they will exactly fit the IS. In fact they look identical to my Ltuned mats. The Ltuned mats fits both the Altezza and the IS. This will be noted by the two holes on the smaller drivers side mat for switching to right hand drive vehicles. The regular logo'd IS300 mat for the drivers side is larger than the Ltuned and only has one hole for US market.

Back one looks a little large, but for sure the front ones will be an exact fit.
