BMW Floor Mats vs Liners?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Mine came with the carpeted floor mats, but with the weather around here, I like the rubber mats.

It seems BMW sells either rubber floor mats and, although a bit more expensive - rubber floor liners.

Anyone have any experience with these willing to offer up recommendations?

I went with the rubber floor liners. Much better protection to the carpet. The free mats that came with my 328d were cheap crap.

Liners are better than the rubber mats. The mats do a decent job, but the liners completely line the floor. Just get Weathertec liners.

I kinda want to do a liner in my trunk but I actually use the trunk nets and hooks quite often. For now, I use a 'ghetto' liner and throw a towel down.

Interestingly, I still use my e46 rubber mats. They fit absolutely precisely in the rear and they're all in great condition!

You can get the BMW liners cheaper than weathertech liners from BMW Parts Pros.

I bought BMW black rubber mats, they are thick, work well. I got a dealer discount for 2007 335i coupe 2 fronts of $50, so final cost $75. But not cheap in price or quality1

I ordered the Sport Line rubber mats (red accents) to match my Coral Red interior... Not cheap but I want something that lasts a few years. Should be delivered tomorrow.

Does BMW actually have a "liner" for the trunk?

2014 418XI, Alpine White, Coral Red interior. The dealer threw in the Sport Line rubber mats with the red accent, front, rear and matching trunk mat. They take the hot look to another level - get them, you'll love them.

The mats look better than the liners but the liners do a better job protecting the carpet. For winter liners are the best option. For lighter duty mats are fine. I run carpet in the summer and its fine

I have a WeatherTech liner. It has provisions to cut out holes where your mounting points are for your net.

So according to this, the BMW cargo liner (BMW calls it a "mat") should be the same. It just doesn't look the same in the pictures.

~ i have the factory rubber bmw mats throughout (including trunk liner) with the red edging and they work great and complement the red leather.

Who are you protecting it for? The next owner? I use rubber mats (weather tech Liners probably way better) in winter and carpet for the rest of the year. Looks WAAY better and carpet is easily cleaned/vacuumed. Rubber mats/lioners in spring summer looks brutal imo.
