The plastic piece under the floor mats that the floor mat button screws into broke. This is the piece that is pop riveted into the floor.

Are there any after market metal pieces to replace the stock plastic one? Also, when I drill out the rivet to replace the piece is there a way to stop the bottom of the rivet from falling down into the bottom of the car? I can hear it rattling around now and I haven't even touched it yet!

Thanks in advance.

They are available here:

All Lotus Cars Alloy Button Carpet Fixing Kit | Hangar 111

And the rivet is not falling into the bottom of the car.
There is no "bottom". There is just the rivet, a very thin sheet of aluminum, followed by pavement.
Just drill it out and pick up whats left from the ground...

Thank you - that was very helpful :)

I didn't know the pieces were riveted to the very bottom of the car.
