The mats are thick and liners thin. The rear mats leave the hump unprotected but the liners cover it. For best fit, both require removal of the carpet mats but we removed only the driver's side. Both keep the carpet mats and bare floor fairly clean. My daughter didn't like the appearance of the liners and chose mats. I didn't trust the edges of the mats and chose BMW brand liners. We both are happy with our respective choices. The trivial snowfall here was not bad enough for melted snow fallen from boots to overflow the mats. The liners have not lost their shape after 18 months. Both X3s have Weathertech cargo mats with cutouts following the outlines for the rear pockets and the four D-rings. No liquid spill has been large enough to test the cargo mat edges or berms around the cutouts.
