I ditched carpet for monsta and haven't looked back. Much lower maintenance, much more durable, and doesn't hold water should the Heep get doused somehow. Carpet was hiding water that sat on the floorboards that rusted around the drain holes. Now, not so much. I wouldn't call it quieter and you'll notice a little more heat by the transmission and exhaust but those cons greatly outweigh the pros for me.
