Carpets from Germany :-(

I have been looking for a set of carpets for my Scuderia and did read about the different options. Most of them seemed a little pricey so I decided do go with a budget alternative from Race and Run in Germany (I live in Sweden so it made sense at the time...). They advertise on ebay and seemed like a nice company based on comments and rating.

Got the carpets after more than a week of delay and to my big surprise the fit is so bad I cant believe they were ever made to fit a Scud. I have been trying to contact them again but they have stopped answering my mails. These carpet are not a an expensive item so no big deal but good to know if someone else were going the same way...

Alex- Those look great. Hopefully less expensive than Lloyd's.

A Scud would look great with alcantara carpets and I understand they wear fairly well.

Thanks very much Johan for informing us about this bad experience. Can you reveal who is this Ebay seller so that others wouldn’t get into the same disappointment? I hope you’ll get some better carpets as those shown by Alex

Nice carpets Alex. Also just wanted to say how I love that covering of the Scud's seats in your pic. I just think the Ferrari factory did a great job with the Scud, that look would've been great in my 458 as well.

They go under the same name as their website: raceandrun

Still hope they will fix this somehow, but I wouldn't bet on it...

Not even close - can't imagine what pattern they used but it's not from a scud.

Your Ferrari deserves better

Yes it certainly deserves better, I am definitely not going to use these. The strange thing is that the pattern on their website looks better so i am not sure what they sent me...

If I had actially bought them via ebay that would probably work. Now I bought them directly from their website so I dont think there is any way that will get my money back...

how did you pay? if by paypal you should have no problem returning them. What is their return policy? Start a dispute with whoever you used to pay them, paypal, credit card, that will get their attention.

I have sent them info of this thread and will take it all back if they sort it out. There might still be just a miscommunication after all...

Just got a mail from Daan at Raceandrun and there is definitely a bit of miscommunication, as I expected. They were closed on monday and tuesday due to a carneval, so we are now back on track.

I have sent more pictures and hopefully they will now see that there is something wrong with the delivery and solve it. Daan was very clear that they are an honest company, so it sounds good so far. If I understand correctly the two owners of this company are themselves 430 Scuderia owners so it shouldn’t bee too hard to see what is wrong :-)

Will keep you posted…

Good news Johan, I usually always had good experiences with German companies and I'm sure you'll come to an agreement with them

It is all sorted now. It was both miscommunication and a bit of stupidity on my behalf. The floor mats actually fit, please don’t tell me to explain, I am so ashamed...

After a few mails with rather harsh words it is now all sorted and I need Daan and Jörg over at Race and run (Race and Run) an apology. Great guys and no shadow should fall on them anymore.
