Carpets are definitely a personal choice, so rather than advocating any
one thing - let me just tell you what I did. The corn silk carpeting
gets dirty just looking at it. I too wanted a solution other than
constant shampooing. I found a set of 4 Lloyd VelourTex carpets custom
sized for the 2011 Touareg in a dark brown that almost exactly matched
the dash and door trim. They offer a cargo area mat too, but I went with
the gray VW CarGo mat back there. Anyway the VelourTex are the same nap
height too, which lessens the risk of catching them with my shoes upon
entry (the next grade of Lloyd is twice as thick). These attach to the
factory floor snaps, and even cover more area than the OE carpets. Which
is good, because under the cornsilk floormats, there's just more
cornsilk carpeting. I pulled out my OE mats and put them in storage.
I'll use the Lloyd mats until it's time to trade, then put the as new OE
mats back in.
