13 years ago I installed Delta's carpet kit and was generally happy with the results.  It is a very nice pre-cut kit which is color correct (which wasn't my favorite).  About 5 years ago, I ripped what was left out of my car.  Granted I tend to abuse my equipment, however, the carpet basically disentigrated and was very color faded.

Alternatively, last weekend I went to Home Depot and found some indoor/outdoor carpet for ~$3/yd.  Eight hours and a quart of contact cement later (great contact high!), I have a new charcoal grey interior to match my charcoal 240SX seats.

Your main problem with indoor/outdoor or marine carpet is color availability.  While my HD stocks a nice black and the charcoal, they also have some really funky blue, green and black/brown.

One other plus for Delta:  Padded Floor Mats.  If you go the HD route, you'll need to find an alternative source.
