At this point, the simple fix is to do something to your original mats, if possible. Carpet and mats will match. All's good in the world!

The can of warms will be opened if you start replacing carpet, etc to get matching items. Then you'll notice the carpet doesn't match carpeted panels, etc. See where this is going? Down the ugly road in search of perfection
True. I am thinking plastidip on the back of the original mats. I am also think with such low miles and the back hatch has the cargo screen on it the back hatch carpet is not faded at all.
