Aftermarket mats for GC (UK)?

As the title suggests I'm looking for some aftermarket mats for my 6GC. The car came with white/cream mats which I'm having to clean all the time with the wet weather. Therefore I thought I'd get some black mats which I could use for couple of months of the year when the weather is really poor.

The problem is I can't find anywhere which does after market mats for the GC yet. My local dealer doesn't have any in stock. And also they'd be 140 ($200) for mats which I'll only use a few months of the year.

BMW make black rubber mats for the GC. Mine came standard with both the (ivory) carpet mats and the rubber - which I'll use in the winter.
Cheers,
Bill

I ended up sending out lots of emails and these guys were the only ones that had the templates for the GC at the time:

http://www.mrcarmats.com/

Ended up getting an upgrade to the top ones as their template was wrong (BMW had sent them the wrong mats i guess, from which they made the template) so had to send them a template of mine. Worked out a quarter of the price of the BMW ones (which weren't in stock anyway) and quality was only a shade under (once I got upgraded to top ones). Good enough that I end up using them quite often (just rotate with originals, giving them plenty of time to dry after a shampoo, ivory picks up a lot of dirt as you may expect).

I would assume BMW have the GC mats in stock by now, and I'd also imagine a few other suppliers have templates aswell.
