Thank you all again for your comments and input.

We decided on the all-weather liners for the front and rear seating areas from BMW. The mats did not have as a high a lip as our old '05 X3 mats. We have a lot of rocks, dirt, gravel and mud here at the ranch (and snow in the winter) and wanted the higher lips on the liners.

We went with the cargo mat in the rear (not the high walled liner) since that has the same lip height as we were used to. Our old cargo mat worked fine and we expect this one will work well for our uses, too. The fold-out sill protector is a nice touch as is the folding box. That box does stay put on the mat (indents in the box bottom match the dimples in the mat), so that is nice.

I looked at the equivalent Weathertech products and decided on the BMW brand because I could get the BMW branded mats cheaper than Weathertech from authorized BMW dealers on eBay.
