Today I saw a 6000 series where only the first 2 cars had the wrapping. I've not seen many 6000 series cars with the wrapping.

However, Metro has removed the carpeting from many of the 6000 series cars and replacing then with flooring like the ones with in the 7000 series cars. But there are still a few 6000 series cars that still have carpeting

Why waste money putting flooring in the 2K/3K cars which be retried in 3 years?

It's going to be a hell of a lot longer then 3 years as specification for the next car procurement has not even been finalized.
