K&N, Pedal & Slush Mat install

Hey everyone, my slush mats and pedal covers came in and I installed them this afternoon so I figured id share a few pictures. I didn't get to my Door Sill plates or Chrome Fog Bezels - got to cold and dark out.

Also, I also installed my K&N so I will keep everyone posted if I see an increase in gas mileage over the next few fill-ups.

I apologize for the quality, pics from my iP4.

I like the factory slush mats. They have deeper channels then the other brands and looks to hold dirt/water/mud better.

Pedal covers look great - any issues installing?

When I installed mine it was in the 40's, it really helped to put both pedals in hot water to make them more plyable, the instructions only says to put the brake in hot water.

i see the slush matts have the expected attorney-inspired warning embossed into them.

the labryith patterns looks like it allows fluids to eventually drain out the aft-most edge of the matt and wont contain spills totally like the weather-tec designs do.

When I did the install it was in the high 20's/low 30s. I also put each pedal in hot water. I'd say it took took 10-15 min.

And, it doesn't seem like much but the extra rubber over the place of a "dead pedal" (or lack thereof) made my ride more comfortable (I've posted about finding a comfortable seating position before).

As far as the K&N is concerned... I didn't drive Saturday evening or Sunday after I installed it so this morning was my first ride. And, when I left for work this morning (same routine, remote start about 2-min before I leave, get in and go, 6:30am) the engine didn't seem as restricted as it has (2600 miles). And today it was 19-deg. Last week we were in the high 20's in the morning. Again, this just the first, initial drive/impression. I didn't bother looking at my MPG because I have a 13-mile, 45-min commute. I'll wait until next fill-up.

Nice! How do you like the pedal covers so far? Does it feel like it gives you a better pedal feel? I've got big feet and always have on dress shoes so they're always slipping off the pedals...

Glad the mats covered the dead pedal area (or where one SHOULD be). My mats should arrive this week, they're a different brand, but I'll be sure to post some pics!

Dresses on your shoes... that could be your problem! LOL
I think you'll like the pedal covers, my leather sole shoes don't slip on the pedals.

LOL, what are you doing? Filling them with water and then not driving around? What do you think driving around is going to do to this standing water? You put a bowl of water in the vehicle only filled 1/3 of the way up and it would spill.

I put the slush mats in mine too as well as the rear cargo slush mat. I really like them.

What are you doing when driving? Are you drinking too much coffee and then being too lazy to stop into a rest station Actually, we just had a few inches of snow here in Baltimore and the mats handled all of the slush and snow from my boots just fine. From what I can tell the standing water didn't hatch a plan to escape the mat through one end in order to reach the coveted carpet.

I am not even sure what this means... I MUST have missed something. But, the pedal covers are pretty nice and worked well with the recent snowy conditions.
