WANTED: New W123 Palomino Mat Set

Dear All,

after spending 45 minutes on-line, I've yet to find a company that manufactures W123 mat sets in PALAMINO.

Beige seems to be the most popular, but I'd really like matching.

I'm in Belgium, so EU/UK supplier required. On the other side of the pond, I can see a few bespoke sellers such as COCO mats, but with tax and customs, they're going to be over 150 delivered. A bit to much for me.

If anyone knows of a mat set for the W123 that is a good 'match' or even something 'funky' that compliments the Palomino, then both of these options would be of interest,


cheers all

I had the same issue about a year ago, ordered a set that was suppose to match and they were way, way off. Sent them back for a refund, and then picked up this set second hand in excellent condition. I like the contrast in color better than a mismatched color. So this might be something to think about.

Yep, definately the way to go. Never thought of going that far though; dark brown.
Cheers for the eye-opener.

If it were me and I really wanted palomino and it couldn't be found for a reasonable price/overseas only, I'd look at what might be available for other chassis in palomino, verify that those floors are larger than the W123 floors and have them cut to size. Any upholstery or canvas shop can cut/trim heavier material like that. You could even have them do contrast edging/piping.

Shout out for Coco Mats in calico. This interior was so worn out that they were the first thing I bought. I knew it would inspire me to stay on the rest of it.

I wish the shipping/taxes wasn't soo high for you to get Coco Mats!

They are awesome and I have them in a couple different vehicles.
