I had the rubber mats and the cargo liner in my '05 X3 (all made by BMW).

While I live in a cold weather state, the mats were just as useful here in the summer because they kept the rocks and gravel out of the carpet. My driveway is a quarter mile dirt road. Also very useful when we traveled to the beach along the Texas Gulf to keep the sand out of the carpet. The cargo liner was also a good investment. There were a couple of times when that sack of dog food developed a hole and dumped half the bag in the cargo area. Cleanup was a breeze - make a funnel out of the mat and sweep the spilled kibble back into a bag. Without the mat, I would have spent the day picking it out of the tie-down channels with tweezers!

Some sort of non-carpeted floor protection is definitely going in the new X3...

For my new model I am trying to decide between the rubber mats and the rubber liners....
