small detail - what's a nice, aesthetic LICENSE PLATE frame?

Looking for better looking license plate frames for my 1997 Z3 (Atlanta Blue) than the ugly ones that came on it when I bought the car.

This may be a small, and rather insignificant detail, but details matter!! Which ones do you guys have, and like? Recommendations, links, and pictures would be appreciated!

There's a bunch on www.bavauto.com (searching "license plate").

Great site by the way -- I learned about it here!

Also looking to get some new tan mats for the interior!

I like the thin frames, like this one - http://www.amazon.com/Cruiser-Access...ds=Plate+frame. You can get them in different colors.

However I have the Roadster 10 Year Homecoming frame on my Roadster.

Floor mats

If your still looking for mats, I have a brand new set of LLoyd Lux floor mats for the Z3 in tan -still in the box with tags attached. Wife got them for me, but since the mats in my car are still like new I really don't need them. These retail for around $140 a set, but I will sell them for $70.00 plus shipping. Let me know if your interested.

Gary

these are what i have on mine. i tend to like a satin finish myself, in black. have had them (or very similar) on pretty much all of the bmw's i have owned.

but then there is this style.....

Thanks for the input. Some nice suggestions. I may get these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I like the black ones people posted too. But I think on my light blue car, it would be too much black.

ON MATS - cmsgtgary, sorry I didn't notice your post earlier. I might have been interested. By the time I saw it, I had already ordered some. They haven't arrived yet. Probably too late, but could you send pics of what you have?

Z3 Mats

I post some pixs of the mats in a day or two. I sealed up the box and stashed them in the garage, so I have to get them down. In the meantime, you can look up LLoyd Lux mats to see them, very thick plush carpet that covers the entire floor boards. They don't move around like some of the thinner mats do. They pretty much match the Z3 an interior color.
