When my car (VIN 2298) was delivered back in January the footwell cover for the trunk was on the due bill.
It was delivered on Feb 10 - a very light material that (after some minor disassembly) turned out to be a honeycomb material that is pretty flexible. Not the most robust thing I've ever seen.
Today I was in the Dania store and the show car has a completely different footwell cover. He is much heavier and sturdier, seems to be made of plastic and has the lift handle mounted in the right (IMHO) place at the rear (as opposed to being in the middle on the original)
Sooooo... I'm speculating that there are a batch of cars that had footwell covers that are the equivalent of the interim carpets (got the proper ones today). So if your footwell cover is light and flexible and you'd prefer something a bit more substantial I'd give your service center a call and inquire about getting the legitimate article.
