  • Question about floor mats

    Getting my car ready for the Monterey Festorics and ordered some new floor mats from the local BMW dealer. The new front mats are the same dimension, etc. except for 2 oblong holes (w/metal grommets) near the 'bottom' (towards the seat). I contacted their parts department and confirmed I had the correct part. Then I called the previous owner to make sure he didn't change the mats and he says they were original. So...

    Was I sold the incorrect part?

    Or did the original part change over time? If so, do I need to purchase/install 'clips' to make the installation/look complete?

    I'm really trying to retain the stock flavor of the car and would prefer not to go the aftermarket route. Thanks for your help.

    New matts should come with plastic clips to hold them in place. I left them out... they require putting holes in your carpet.

    You were sold the correct parts.. no worries.

    Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"

      my new mats have the clip holes, but didn't come with the clips (or the PO tossed or lost them). i find my drivers side mat gets stuffed forward and bunches near the throttle pedal. anyone have clips they dont want?

        I have 2 pairs. PM me your mailing addy and I'll drop them in the mail sometime this weekend?

            I have 2 pairs.

            If JHT only wants one set for his drivers side, I can send you the other pair.

            But, he gets first refusal on wanting both pairs to hold both driver & pass. matts.

                So I'm not the only one getting my car ready for the Festorics :p

                I wish I only had to deal with floor mats though. before the 19th, the car is getting paint, a cage, wheels, brakes, and new body parts.

                I've got a feeling its not going to go very smoothly :(

                  I still have to order mine (e30 mats). Just not sure whether to order black or anthracite. Now that my carpet is the dark version (almost black) it is hard to know what matches anymore.

                    Anyone has pictures of the OE mats for these cars? I've been looking around to replace mines with originals. Thanks!

                        I went with a set of e46 m3 floor mats, which include front/rear mats. And have ///M3 embroidered on the front set. Fit was pretty good and looks nice.
                        One letter. One number. One legend ///M3.
