Unhappy HELP! Found foam shavings on floor in front of driver seat

This is the second time in two months after just I purchased my first bmw that I've found small pieces of foam on the floor. It's appeared in the same spot, on the floor directly in front of the left corner of the drivers side seat.

What in the world is going on? Is my seat falling apart? I bought a 2011 X5 35i Premium from the Certified Pre-owned dealership in Manhattan.

A mouse making a nest in the foam cushion on the seat? A piece of foam that is being rubbed off by the seat adjustment movement? Foam that was water soaked and is in the process of deterioration? Check with your dealer and have them remove the seat cover and check it out. You didn't mention if you have heated seats. Are they working?

Crazy! I have an 2011 35i premium and mine is doing the exact same thing in the same spot. I have vvacuumed the little foam pieces out 3 or 4 times now. I do not have heated seats and being the only driver, the seat never gets adjusted. Any ideas?

I'm having the same issue as well under the driver seat only. I have heated seats would that make a difference?

I hope you have a rodent problem.

The other alternative is you bought a pre-owned with water damage from Sandy, in which case you are royally screwed.
