Weather Tech

Hello,

I wanna know everyone's opinion on weather tech floor liners. They look pretty nice but they are a bit pricey. I believe first row and second row floor liners for my car is about $180. But if they get the job done, then i have no problem dishing out the money. I saw other topics about coco matts, but i didn't really like the look of them.

We have the floor liners in all of our cars and love them. They collect dirt, leaves, and water and then clean pretty easily. The floor liners are expensive but they don't wear out like carpeted floor mats.

If I wanted rubber floor mats, I'd drive a 1970 pickup with the bargain basement vinyl on the floor.

Weathertech makes a fine product, but I don't find them appealing at all. I bought it for the carpet, and I'll use the carpet. ScotchGard everything, pull the floor mats once a year and hose them off.

Too salty around here in the winter for "Scotchgard" and some rubber mats to prevent the inevitable floor rot. Back in Cali, all I ever had was nice carpeted mats. Those don't work well here in the great NE.

I couldn't find trunk liners for 328i convertible. Anyone know if the sedan and coupe version are compatible with the convertible?

Worth every penny IF you're willing to put up with the looks. They aren't very "noble" looking and are naturally at odds with the aesthetics of a luxury car's interior. However, I've never had another floor mat hold up so well for so long. They will outlive the car.

Looks were the primary reason I moved away from them and chose Catch-All brand's cloth-covered all weather mats. I'm pleased so far (8 or 9 months later).

But weather tech is a great product and the company is in the US.

I bought the liners for my X3. Perfect fit. Liner in the passenger side of my E93 would not fit. Live 5 miles from factory and they agreed. Rubber ones for very well though.

I just received my order and was very pleased by how well they fit in my car!

One question for those who own weather tech matts/liners. Did you install the auger retention hooks or was it not necessary? I can't seem to figure out a way to install them on my 2010 328i without causing damage with the screw.

Try using them without the screws. If they move around on you, you might have to install them. I ended up not using them.

Thanks, I will try that. It seems like the liners already fit in pretty well without the hooks. Only time will tell.

Was it difficult? My BMW has the velcro plates for the original matts, do those have to be taken out in order to install the screws?

On mine I just pulled the Velcro units out & put the new hooks in their place.

Re: Weather Tech

I just unscrew the velcro spots and screw in the hooks using the same holes. Piece o' cake.

I like mine as well, but I didn't screw in the bolts into the floor, I just bought some velcro and stuck it to 2 of the sides of each on front, none on back mats. They fit perfectly, and are very good at holding in dirt and water. The problem is cleaning them. Unless you use soap, the dirt that was there before prior to washing with water will show up, so you really need to scrub it with soap to get that new clean look again.
