I just picked up the OEM rubber floor mats from Patrick BMW in Schaumburg (NW Chicago burb). It was $41.41 (front mats only) with my BMW CCA discount. They are made of rubber and have lots of little holes to hold water, snow and slush. They aren't quite as deep as others I've seen around but I'm not too worried about that. They lock into the floors with this little key screw thingie. I think it'll do just fine.

Another alternative is Weathertech.com . They have lots of nice looking floor mats although they are a bit more pricey.

Ray..go in it safely...go w/bmw rubber =P

Then again, after getting my rubber, it made my car stink for a couple weeks. Look into weathertech which IMO looks cooler.

i didn't know that bmw sells rubber too!! if they are flavoured, then they shouldn't make ur car stink at all!! May b u got the wrong kind, Quincy!! .. hehe :tongue:

Anyways, can't u just leave them in the open for a couple of weeks after u bought them to get rid of the smell?
Those weathertech are so damn expensive!!!

BMW sells 2 types of rubber mats.
There is another thread on this issue.

Pacific BMW has an excellent price on the OEM rubber sets.
Bavarian auto has a very nice rubber mat set as well that are German made and have a 2 year warranty and they cost about the same as the discounted BMW sets.

Weathertech makes nice mats as well and I've used them in my other cars but they don't fit as well as OEM mats.

TT

BMW mats

RAY,

Here is a pic of what I have. These are real sweet, better then the ones with holes. These have BMW in the middle of them with channels to hold in water. I got em from Circle bmw for like $40 for the front pair. Although these are usually more expensive then the other bmw mats that Commander mentioned.
There is no bad rubber smell either

I can't believe my OEM mats already have a worn spot on them after just 9 months of owning the car. My 1993 525's OEM mats lasted nearly 10 years, and I never felt the need to replace them.

Anyone have more recommendations on good aftermarket carpeted mats?
