I should be picking up my new 2015 RX 450h next Friday. It is coming with the standard mats and up here in Ohio they just won't cut it in the wintertime. I have grey WeatherTech liners on my Highlander and like them. I'm not sure if their black ones will match well enough with the RX's black carpet. Anyone buy the black WeatherTech liners? How'd you like them? The OEM ones don't really come up high enough to deal with massive amounts of snow especially around the kick plate.

I was foolish enough to buy the beige interior and quickly bought the black WeatherTech replacements. Those are secured with the twist clips and I have placed the original mats on top to soak up water. I am experimenting with ways to secure those so they don't shift.
I fashioned some matching black carpet with Velcro backing to go over the foot rest (kick plate?) area. It can be removed/replaced if it gets too dirty. This partially fits under the WeatherTech liners to help hold it in place. If you do this, get the heaviest grade Velcro you can find since the lighter grade stuff does not stick well to the OEM carpeting.
I am going to get the WeatherTech liner for the trunk area shortly since we carry dirty stuff there also.
The black matches pretty well. I have the regular WeatherTech mats in the front and rear row and the digital trunk liner in the back. I should have gotten the digital ones for the seats as well. I'll add a photo later when I get a chance.
Bought the black digital ones for front, rear and cargo area. They fit perfectly, no slipping and sliding. They look a little industrial but it's better ruining the carpets and if they get dirty, you can just hose them off. No snow here in S.F. but lots of sand from the beach.
Got the whole set for $280 delivered, so pm me if you want to know where I ordered them from.
weathertech liners are just that..liners they protect the entire floor and sides where as OEM just protects the floor...i was in the same boat as you and i figured why would i waste my money on mats that are only gonna protect the floors and not the sides..so i went with weathertech and love em..easy to clean..and use 303 spray to shine em up!
I paid $80 for the fronts and $109 for the cargo with free shipping. If you check on ebay they are on there by different vendors the prices vary so check a few pages back. If you can't find them I may be able to get you the link.
