    Coupe moulded carpet on bootlid?

    Hi, does the coupe come with a moulded carpet on the bootlid ?
    The reason I ask is My Saloon has the same bootlid but with no carpet ,Ive just seen on ebay a complete coupe bootlid with spioler ect and it has the moulded carpet , does anybody know where I can get hold of one of these carpets ?

    COupe bootlid is shorter than the saloon by the look of it.

    There is no tailgate trim as far as I can find for the saloon either.

    The bootlid just looks wrong without it , My saloon is a CDX so I would have thought they would have fitted one , Oh well would have been nice looks like I will have to make one to fit bit of grey carpet and fibre glass me thinks

    I didn't have the carpet for my coupe, went a got one from a breaker but found out that I didn't have the holes for clips. So out came the drill. Be warned though that if you do this, make sure you don't press to hard when using the drill as you will dent the outer layer which is visible. Tip- place a small piece of wood inside the boot lid to prevent the drill hitting the outer layer.

    cab and coupe bootlids are slightly different but the carpet may fit.

    Cheers for the replys and tips I wouldn't be wanting any external dents or holes , I seen a coupe in a carpark today and the boots look very similar in size and shape , so I will keep an eye out at the local breakers
