I ordered from here http://faulknerbmwpartssource.com/pa...&siteid=216042

With shipping it was $250. Not cheap, but the best price I could find.

Here are the links to the setup for my 50lb dog

Outward hound pet hammock $16
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Ruff Riders harness (crash tested) $43
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

PetBucke strap to secure dog harness to LATCH anchor (also crash tested) $13
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

In my opinion, the crash testing of the harness and other components is key, otherwise there is a big safety risk.

Also, I have not seen any marks on the door so I am not clear on the need to pay an order of magnitude higher price for the OEM door protectors.

That Latch Anchor is really good. I have it in both my cars for our dog. In terms of the crash testing of harnesses... there is no "defined" standard to test for. Subaru is trying to define that standard for dog safety harnesses. That being said, the better the harness (according to common sense), it's pretty safe to say it'll be safer for your dog.

I just picked up my car a couple weeks ago and put the cover in for the dog. I like it a lot, and it does cover everything. But it's almost like it's too big. I know it's not made for the F30 so I can't complain too much. It does bunch up in front of the back seat, and where the seat back and cushion meet. Is anyone else having that issue, and if so, did you figure a way to make it fit better? I think if I were shorter, and had the seats further up, this may not happen.

You must be tall! I think it's bunching up because you have your seats pretty far back. I suppose this issue still exists if you were to use it on an E90.

One solution might be to get 2 dowels, lay it on the crevice of each seat, then shove it between the seat back and cushion.

Yeah, I was thinking something like that. Even with the bunching, I really like this cover. With the door pieces on, there isn't anything my dog can mess up. Plus it holds his hair so it doesn't go flying around the car. I have a brush attachment for the vacuum and that cleans the hair off the cover pretty easily.

Thanks for pointing this cover out to us!

It's the cover mentioned in the first post. The cover is between the vent and the dog, but the vent is not blocked.

If you use the entire cover, it does indeed block the rear vents. I only use half of it so the rear vent is still useful. That being said, even if the rear vent is blocked, I doubt the dog will overheat.

The E46 cover I used for years covered most of the area in-between the front seats and my Samoyed never overheated. Just made sure the vents were aimed up a bit. Still I'd like to get one with cutouts.

This sounds like a good idea. Perhaps cutting out a hole for the vents and then hemming the edges would work.

Maybe because I have my seats back, but there is at least a foot between the vent and the cover. The air kind of hits the cover and reflects back up front. For sure the dog won't overheat regardless of the vent though.

I know this thread is old as hell, but any chance you still have this?
