If you're worried about clashing colors, have you ever considered, or are you even aware of clear protective floor mats?
We have a white over red 560SL, and I didn't want the standard colors of tan, grey or black, but I was still interested in something that would protect my original factory mats.
Did some research, asked a few questions, and came across Lloyd's Protector mats which are custom cut and "clear". Well, when they arrived, they were more translucent than clear and the red doesn't quite show through like I anticipated, but they offer the protection I was interested in without clashing with my red carpeting. I placed them on top of the original mats and they work just fine.
I suppose there is one caveat that I should mention...I don't drive the car in ANY kind of inclement weather, so the mats have never been tested in that regard. They seem to be thick enough, but have no edge to contain water, melting snow, excessive dirt, debris, etc.
