Default Do all F Sport Rioja have red stitched floor mats?

I noticed another member had red stitching on his F Sport floor mats with the Rioja interior. Heres the thread: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/is-t...ally-here.html

Is this standard for all red interior cars? My car did not come with these mats? Maybe my dealer switched mine?

I don't have red stitching on my black exterior with red interior. I am in Los Angeles

John, if for whatever reason it's the luck of the draw where some got the red stitching and others didn't, don't despair, there's a solution:

Yes, a similar one. There are several "fabric markers" on the market. For 5$ you have nothing to lose. The key thing is to first test in an inconspicuous area. I tested it on my office chair before I do it to my IS. It doesn't rub off unless like most anything out there, you scrub hard enough with a brush, cleaner, and water.

I can't even believe you noticed this difference! Great eye for detail....

It's obvious that your dealer mixed these up. I would go back and ask for the Rioja Red matching mats!

I believe you have to pay extra for those.

They do not come with the car they are an accessory you can add.

Swapped out the carpet for the all weather mats 2 weeks into owning my car, didn't even notice any stitching.

The car I looked at came with it. I'll see if they can throw in the carpeted mats so I can switch back and forth depending on the seasons. Should be free right?
