OEM carpets - the only way to go for me. Nothing else comes close or looks the part.

For those who drive their cars in winter, the rubber mats do a better job of containing debris and snow and slush than carpet mats, and are less likely to allow the main carpet underneath to get soaked. For nice weather driving only, though, I’d choose carpet mats. Two sets would be ideal, but for many of us, our car is not our life so there is a finite amount of time that does not always allow what is ideal.

Same here actually.

If the weather is bad enough that I could damage the car I just take the XJ, which has all weather mats to prevent any rust.

I'm surprised no one has stepped forward with "I have the OEM EU-spec floormats".

The EU ones lack the M3 embroidery and that square-ish heel protector insert.

Also there were different types of quality, with the velours being the highest.

We do want the logo and heel pad.

I've been in the market for an E36 M3 for awhile now and always notice that when a car has a dove/mulberry interior that carpets are almost always black. Drives me nuts when they don't match but wondering if those carpets are NLA? If so, are people doing some custom mats or something to match?

I just ordered a set of OEM Genuine BMW 'M' mats from ECS for $100. In grey anthracite by the way. They were on sale too. Original ones had some weird material that started to disintegrate entirely a few years ago. So it was time. Here's for another 20 years.

The OEM pads you buy now are total garbage...I have a set. The heat bonded, bottom velcro pads come right off in the first hot day. Stitching is poor too.

What other choice do we have?
