I believe there is a slight difference in the shape of the driver's footwell as well as the different anchor points.
Incidently I just ordered a set of rubber mats for my 08 MY Type-R and they supplied me a set with the metal anchor point and the holes in the wrong place for my car. Called local Honda parts dept and they reordered them using my reg and again they received a set with the wrong anchor points. According to the parts guy he has spoken to Honda accessories and they say that these are the ones for my car and they are obviously not as he explained to them why in that case are the premium mats between model years different, they are yet to get back to him.
It would seem IMO that they have not yet made rubber mats for the 08 MY yet or it is not cost effective as very few owners buy the rubber mats as the parts guy told me that I was the first person that they had ordered Type-R rubber mats for. Has anyone with a 08 MY got rubber mats with the correct anchor points? Going to take the mats back and get a refund if I don't have the proper ones by end of next week
