What cargo mat are people using?

I have a new EB2 Msport and was trying to decide what trunk liner to use.

BMW seem to have one with a red trim (Sport) and one with a silver/beige trim (Modern). BMW also offers a different cargo solution that folds out in three parts.

Weathertec also has trunk liners.

Any opinions on any of these protective solutions. I occasionally transport my mother's wheelchair and some sailing gear and of course luggage when on vacation.

I got the modern one...I have a base model, and all black interior, seems to match well.

Got from my dealer for $102 "installed" when they were running a special...lmk of you want a pic.

Mine is an all black interior as well. I wouldn't mind seeing a picture as the one on the BMW website doesn't really give a very good idea of what it looks like.

Thanks - that will be really helpful.

Really enjoying my new ride: The last time I bought a new car was 16 years ago so it is quite an eye opener the amount of technology that is incorporated into these machines.

Trunk liner? What's that? LOL!! I've got a trunk with a black interior. When I have "crap" to put in the trunk, I throw a ratty blanket in to keep the car neat.

First week of owning the car, I had put my groceries in the back and my gallon of milk was slightly leaky...learned my lesson, bought this, and have no worries...

I had that "ah-ha" moment when I was driving to gas stations for generator gas every day during the 12 days without power from Sandy (you may have been in the same boat). I loaded the trunk with old blankets to absorb any spills. Other than that, my car is never used for messy errands. Got a pick-up and SUV for those tasks.

I did a lot of comparison shopping several years ago and again this summer for my 2013 335xi sedan and IMHO you can't beat Weathertech products. Sure they're pricey but also very well constructed, tough, durable and fit like a charm. The BMW offerings are OK but, for my money, but not nearly as good.

Just FYI, this mat is cheaper than the weathertech version, which is why I went ahead with it (if you can get a 20% discount at your dealer)....

here are some pics, sorry it was late and dark out:

I justed using the weather tech rubber mat that i had in my old E46 325i. It is a pretty good fit and gets the job done.

I got the weather tech one. Works well. Has optional cut outs for the cargo net holes so you can use the cargo net too.
