Ever since I bought the car, the carpet has looked like this:

You couldn't see it under the floor mat, but I knew it was there, and it really, really bothered me. Finally turned to Craigslist, found some STi carpet for $40 and tackled the job today.

It was an even 100 degrees out, so the job was hot and uncomfortable.

But the new carpet looks amazing, so it was totally worth it!
