2013 x3 cargo liner options

What do you guys think about cargo liner options for the 2013x3? Is the oem liner with the collapsible box for around $100 worth it? The $240 tray looks nice, but I'm not too eager to spend that much. (does anybody have a lead on how to get these oem accessories cheaper?) The weather tech one looks nice and is cheaper, but I can't seem to find one being made for the 2013. Any other options you guys know of?

Several choices out there:

Anything that fits the 2011 model will fit the 2013 model. I have the BMW cargo liner with the folding box and love it. Highly recommend it.

Check the site sponsors. At least one,Tischer BMW, sells discounted BMW parts online. See http://www.getBMWparts.com. Many dealers sell parts to members of the BMW Car Club of America at a discount. See http://www.bmwcca.org

I bought (post-purhcase) the BMW liner with the crappy box. Whilst it doesn't quite deal with the rear right hand small drop down area near the boot lid, it's very good for protection. It also has some flappy piece of pvc that can be pulled out and drapes over the bumper/fender. Not that I've used that yet mind ...

Poor box, he's OK really. Just needs some extra super glue ;-)

^^^^^ Me too but I don't even have room for the box as I have a dog crate in there. But the rubber mat is perfect. And the flappy fold out piece is stupid cuz it folds out from underneath so you have practically remove the mat to pull it out and use it-which in my case is impossible with the dog crate. I had my bumper clear masked and keep a towel back there to lay over the bumper. Was it worth $200 or whatever it cost? Hell no, but it is what it is and it costs what it costs and I have a rubber mat that is protecting my cargo floor.

The WeatherTech liner seems better thought out than BMW's - and it fits perfectly.

The folding box is rubbish - held together with self adhesive Velcro which failed straight away. Have now taped box all round to hold it in place but obviously no longer folding. Very poor quality but cargo mat fine so would have forgone box for a cheaper price.

Do you know if he weather tech one is available for the 2013? I tried a couple of searches on the interwebs and only see the ones for earlier model years- some of which give the warning before I purchase that it won't fit the 2013 x3

Any weather tech mat that fits the 2011 & 2012 will fit the 2013 year model. Nothing has changed in the cargo area since the 2011 refreshed model came out. Just stay away from anything from 2010 back. If you look at the ebay link I gave you in my previous post, you will see the weather tech liner that will work for a 2013 X3.
