What ?! Part II

When I first saw the $145 price tag on a set of floor mats for my car, I said forget it. Why spend that kind of money on floor mats, that only will be stepped on by passengers' dirty shoes ? I could spend my $145 on much more useful things. Or so I thought.

My friends, awesome as they are, were not in agreement with my reasoning.

Jeff mentioned that he had spent a similar amount on the floor mats for his most lovely Nissan 350Z. Rick simply could not understand why I wouldn't buy a good set of mats for my car. And Rakesh nailed me to the wall with his simple but eloquent statement:

"And how much did you spend on the car again ?"

Peer pressure got the best of me. Armed with a generous birthday/Christmas contribution gift from my good friend AJ, I purchased the floor mats. Not the simple (read: boring) ones from the dealer, but custom mats with 330ci embossed on the driver and passenger sides.

Were they worth it ?

I dare say they were.

Do you feel proud to step on one hundred and forty five dollars?
