I ordered a set of Weathertech mats for my 2011 as I'm sick of cleaning up salt stains every spring. They arrived last week and look fantastic... thanks for the tip on adding velcro to the back, may do that myself depending on how they work out.

Now just hoping I don't have to put them in until mid/late November.
Additional tip on the Velcro... The effectiveness is going to be only as good as your bond strength between the Velcro patch and the mat - I tried and failed with a glue gun last season. I'll probably try 3M double-sided tape this season - the same stuff I used on my splitters.
