Black interior with Gray floor mats

My floor mats are in dire need of replacement. They are a little ripe. I was tossing around the idea of buying a set of OEM Gray mats from Bavauto.com. My interior is all black except for the headliners/doorliners are gray. I am thinking maybe this could give off a nice contrast. It may look a little refreshing. Any opinions or has anyone else have this in their car? Thank in advance

I have these in my car , but my interior is all grey . Also I have a set of throw aways on top of my expensive BMW mats . Once the throw aways get beat up I drop a new set in .

Thanks Herman. I keep my mats really clean and another thought process of mine is that the black even when clean shows some much lent and smaller particles. The gray I would clean and vacuum just as often but I feel like it would look cleaner due to the lighter shade and less lent appearing even when clean. The only down fall of the lighter colors is the kids in the back with spills or stains

Well then,, get some cheap black mats throw them over the good mats , and when the kids drop and spill stuff it only damages the throw aways . Which are inexpensive to replace compared to the BMW ones.

That wasn't the link I supplied. Something changed it.

It's 6 bucks at Walmart. Showed up as ebay just a second ago.
