I think those look like custom floor mats that just have a monogram on them.  somebody like the CARid people.  You can basically put anything on them

Check out Amazon.

Thank you!

I will try. Most of the time I asked in Europe, I heard it was not allowed to put logos on them...

Most automotive OEMs are pretty anal when it comes to using their logo on a product that is not sold or endorsed by them. Not only in Europe. If you sell something and use their logo without explicit consent, you risk a lawsuit. I remember we had to get permission for using the OEMs' logos in our sales and marketing brochures when we wanted to mention them as customers.

Yes Mike, that is the point.

Carid will not do it, I checked already. Would have to find someone local and order unofficially.

I just like the way it looks.

Quite a few over-restored Pagodas at the show. I found a number of  'drivers' outside with a lot more character (unrestored / simply well-maintained). Prices were 80k EUR and up.
I spent some time at the Polish Pagoda stand where they had a luggage set (EUR 3k) and center armrest that slides into the standard center wooden console. Very well executed, quality item.
All is well in the Pagoda world.
