I think I owe it to the posters here, prospective purchasers of mats for the 6 Gran(d) Coupe, and indeed WeatherTech to relay the conclusion of my saga.

Basically, WeatherTech's "design team"...

NP, I might not have been clear. I specifically did not want the liners (just a personal decision).

OK, I'll give it a shot. I'll simply copy my original email to sales (I believe that was the address given on the site). Not expecting much, but certainly will try.

Weathertech Disappointment

I was just wondering: I needed rubber floormats for my new 2015 640ix GC and decided I'd save a few bucks and order from Weathertech instead of BMW. Bad move.

I specified my exact model on their...

iPhone and Office: Will It or Won't It?

Well the OEM part is not a problem, that's what the dealer will use to replace the ones that got damaged. The insurance will work at ANY BMW dealer, although I guess not at general tire shops.
