Re: Daimler sheepskin mats.

the drivers side didn't get a mat in the set, just the passenger foot wells, so a set of 3

you could ( at even more cost ) order a drivers footwell mat , but few did , and finding a 'full' set of 4 is almost impossible,

i searched four years to get some for mine

not a lot really , other than potentially draw in engine fumes into the blower cowl, thats why its shaped like that, so the air is pulled from the grille under the windscreen , its designed as a one way valve
