get on LS2gto.com and do a search for carpet clips. there is a guy that goes by the name of jamesbiz that sells aftermarket machined metal ones for replacements. for a set of 4 i think they were like 50. he says they will not break. take a look

Too bad you couldn't have gotten those while still under warranty as those prices are nuts.

As for the metal floor mat clips, I bought the ones from Arizona Power and Sound. They're $60 for all four and look just like the factory ones. I got the buff silver ones, which look just like the trim on the dash, and they're great.
