Are they too expensive? Well, yes, but at 55 yrs old, EVERYTHING is too expensive. But they seriously are quality stuff. Well made. When you get in the car you don't slip and slide, they grab the carpet and the mats themselves aren't slippery to your feet. Would recommend. I gave a 4 1/2 on performance because the outside edge of the mat has a slight wave to it but still I'm very satisfied.
