While I was driving around my heel often slipped when I was braking and accelerating, especially when wet. It was not a question of quality or color, as the mats and the mounting hardware fit perfectly and appeared to be very well made, I just didn't care for the hard feeling under my feet.
+1 on the BMW OEM rubber mats, I just leave those in all year around. Only problem is they slide forward and ride up the gas pedal.

We have the WeatherTech in our Subaru, I think it is plastic, not rubber.
