Weathertech vs OEM vs other floor mats

Does anyone have some all weather floor mats that they really like? I need to get some before the winter hits, but am not sure which route to take. I'd like something that's made for the focus but it starts to get a little expensive. Weathertech's cover up the entire floor (which I kind of like) but they are crazy expensive for floor mats and do they look ok? The OEM's look nice, but do they do a good enough job of keeping the snow/salt/mud off the carpets? Or if you have any other suggestions for floor mats I am definitely open to it.

I have the OEM winter floor mats...don't waste your money...they don't cover up much in the front...especially on the drivers side. I was expecting something closer to the weahtertechs when I ordered them, so I am a little disappointed. How much do weathertechs cost for the 2012 Focus?

Thanks for your post. I would have ordered them and I'm sure I would have been disappointed. The prices on Weathertechs was up there, in the $160 range. I bought the Husky Weather Beater floor mats and trunk mat from a dealer on eBay for a total of $172.98, delivered. http://www.got-chrome.com/

We need them up here in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a mile of dirt road, gravel driveways, and occasional hauling of animal feed - not to mention the chicken s**t on my boots.

Including shipping and tax it comes out to be just over $200 for both the front and rear seats.

I bought the OEM all-weather mats and "they're okay" but I'm annoyed by the lack of dead-pedal coverage. Wish I had checked out the Huskys before I pulled the trigger! Unfortunately the Husky Liners don't seem to be available a la carte; you have to buy the whole set. I would love to get just the driver's side front somehow...

yeah i wish the dead pedal was covered...my wifes heels will tear a nice big whole in the carpet soon if she doesnt remember to keep her heels in the OEM all weathers that came with the winter pkg...

I would think that the wal mart type trimmable mats mights be a little awkward?? Seems like some folks here are having success with em, but in my experience they move around alot...i like the snap fit of the OEMs...
