: Floor mats wearing out?

I have 70,000 on my '02 m3C and am on my fourth set of floor mats. Is anyone else having this problem?

I have had this problem on every car so I get the all weather (ie: rubber) ones. I am pretty sure that BMW makes them for the M3. Just like a carpet, the regular ones will wear out with extended use I'd imagine.

Well, think about it, at least you are wearing out mats, and not the carpet. :)

DO you ever clean them? Excessive wear normaly comes from getting dirt and/or sand in teh carpet fibers, which then cuts the fibers with pressure and movement.

I could probably vacuum more often - once a month now.

I have an 'O2 also, and the driver's mat looks like hell, but I just bought a set of 4 on ebay for $90 instead of the dealer's prices.
