I think you got a pretty good deal. I recently sold my set of style 5's that were straight, had minimal curb rash, but moderate clearcoat peeling for ~$600 shipped w/o tires. Enjoy!

If you want something a little more industrious, use 1/4" x 1" bolts to hold the mats down. My aftermarket mats were already pre-drilled with holes (not that it's hard to do) and I just bolted...

Funny, I had lots of inquiries on my style 5's. I just never liked them, but lots of people do. I actually had several inquiries and sold them to someone else on this board last month.
