BMW Floor Mats vs: Weather Tech

We have some money coming to us from the dealer. We are huge fans of weather tech floor mats but thought maybe we'd try the BMW floor mats, black with red trim. We have the sport line so it matches. How do the BMW mats compare to the Weather Tech mats? Thanks

I've always used BMW OEM rubber floor mats in all of my BMW's and they all fit very well and do the job they were intended to do. Today I put in the BMW OEM F30 Sport rubber floor mats in and believe me they fit 100%+ better than any other floor mats I've used. They're made that the side edges tip up a little bit to help contain the dirt and water. The mats are just great and the best part of it they were a gift from JMK BMW
cheers

I'm in the same dilemma. I noticed that the weather tech might cover the rear hump. This will be my deciding factor even though I would like the BMW logo on the OEM ones.

We've always used WT. They are made separately but wear really well, they are durable and last. No black with red stripe however.

I thought I read somewhere that WeatherTech makes the BMW mats. I also have them and agree that they look like sh*t within no time after installing - kind of white/gray.

Sorry the OEM black rubber mats in my 2006 X3,6 years old look like the first day I used them. Sure they get dirty but when you wash them they look great, they don't look gray. All of the OEM mats that were black always cleaned up like they were new thats why I keep going back to them when I get a new BMW and usually there a gift from JMK BMW.
cheers

The Weathertech floor mat sets do NOT cover the rear hump in the vehicle. However, the digital floor liner sets DO cover the rear hump in the vehicle according to the pictures on their web site.

That's weird. Mine are black '09 mats, kinda spongy. Easy on bare feet. No discolor. Bought in dealer parts boutique, might be an option.

The Weathertech labels fall off pretty quick, if you're attached to those.

I like how WT digital mats go up high on the sides, cause it's easy to touch the side felt with a muddy foot with traditional flat mats.

Interesting, now the WT site has a disclaimer that the rear set is 2 piece. Wonder if my call to them had any effect? The picture is deceiving on the site.

I think you want them to be separate so you can take them out individually and clean them particularly if there is water on the bottom or snow or dirt.

I'm currently using the OEM rubber mats (plain black rubber, not the sport version) and have never been thrilled with the fit...there is always stuff under the mats when I am vacuuming...

We are now moving to Chicago and i just purchased the Weathertech mats today (can't wait to try them on) as they tend to cover more area and create a nice container for anything you might track into the car...

Anyone in SoCal interested in 5 mo. old OEM black rubber mats? Ha!

Do dealers generally give out floor mats for free or do you have to ask them for it?
Or do you generally have to just buy them yourself?

You have to ask the dealer to give them to you for free...
Sometimes they agree sometimes the don't (depending on their profit).

Thanks.

Depends on their profit is what I suspected...
Do you think a dealer would agree to give me one on a invoice + $560 deal? This $560 includes both document fee and training fee..

For those who have older E90 style mats, be advised that the F30 all-weather mats have a tight-fitting "lip" which hugs the carpet quite tightly and firmly. This creates a place for ice and water to collect and evaporate without any damage to the surrounding carpet like the older mats did.

Regarding discoloration, as others have pointed out all that needs be done is removing the mats and rubbing with a soapy sponge and they look factory-fresh. Truth be told, with my kids and their activities, I remove the carpeted mats and go with the all-weather mats all year long. They look great and they are very protective, the new F30 design even moreso.
