the circular velcro pads on the mats I ordered new from ecs a couple months ago hold on really nice! but I do enjoy the hook and clips in other cars.

^ Do they have the shit liner or the newer heat pressed pads as shown on previous page? If ECS is stocking/sourcing the updated part then I'll order there.

TC2 got back to me about a month ago saying he sourced the updated mats from FCP Euro if that helps. ECS is a good option as long as they aren't carrying old backstock.

Exactly correct. The backing of the mats separate. The pin option seems to work best from my experience.

Default Re: Floor mats - Velcro vs Through Post Style

Is there a part number for the pin with hook type to secure the mat from the top down, rather than replacing the Velcro on the bottom side of the mat?
The only part numbers I see don't fit our car.

Did this as well when the foam liner was tearing. Used some industrial grade hot glue and haven't had issues since.

Its not so much that I want to be noticed, but more that I want to stand apart from the crowd. And to me, Phoenix Yellow and Laguna Seca Blue are two of the best ways to differentiate your M3 experience from the norm.

Here is a new solution for securing floor mats: the Eagle Klaw car mat clips. Many people on Facebook say they are the best. I agree.

Thanks for those links.
Question; what do the circlips (locks) do? is that a spacer basically? are they necessary or part of a different design for attachment.
