    Default Floor Mats

    Considering the somewhat cheap alternatives, is $95 for BMW Floor mats a good price?

    It's ok...you might check with Pacific BMW, the last time I checked they were $85....just make sure you order the "plush" type of mats.

    Are aftermarket mats better than the BMW Factory ones? I bought a full set a while back, around $100 usd and thought they were fairly flimsy especially for the price.

    BMW used to make a number of different types loosely described as "City" which a a standard smooth looking mat and "Country" which are a heavy duty mat ribbed mat. I have had a set of Country mats in my car since it was new and aside from a small amount of wear on the drivers side they look like new and I suspect will oulast me! If you can get a set of these they will be very hardy as well as attractive to look at.

    does anyone know how well the "country" mats hold up to snow and slush?

    I got the custom embroidered ones from BavAuto for the 535i

    I was a bit disappointed as they dont have any sort of grip to hold them in place on the bottom and surely don't attach to the mat-locks... although they do look pretty sharp

    I'm curious to know what is considered a failure regarding a floor mat.
