BMW E46 M3 Coupe Floor Mats
Are your floor mats shot, or did your E46 M3 come pre-owned and lose them along the way? If you baby your M3 and prefer genuine BMW parts, branded replacements for your worn mats will help maintain both your car's floors and its original style. Multiple options are available depending on your car interior and the climate.Why buy BMW floor mats?
If you strive to maintain an OEM appearance, choosing the mats designed for the E46 will keep your floors looking fresh from the factory. High-quality protective coverings for vehicle footwells resist spills and stains, and the M3-specific replacement parts ensure a perfect fit that will stay in place, helping to preserve the condition of your vehicle. BMW products will also blend in with your vehicle's interior trim. If the OEM mats are not available, or do not come in the color or style you would like, floormats designed specifically for the BMW M3 are also produced by aftermarket manufacturers, offering additional options.What are the available options?
For the E46 coupe, BMW offers its standard floormats (sold as a set of two, either front or rear) in black rubber as well as semi-rigid front and rear all-weather floor mats in black, beige, or gray. The all-weather design has high side walls and deep, molded channels to trap water and debris, keeping it out of your carpets. Finally, BMW produces carpeted floor mats in a cushioned velour embroidered with the M3 insignia (available as a set of two in beige, black, gray, or anthracite).What are the advantages of carpet vs. rubber mats?
The deep pile and included heel pad of the carpeted mats maximize comfort for the E46's driver. They are constructed of smooth, durable nylon that resists water and dirt. Meanwhile, the M3 rubber option, especially the all-weather version, will minimize your cleaning and detailing time. These non-porous designs are ideal for protecting your car's carpet from moisture that can cause mold, odors, and even corrosion. Both types of mats are OEM parts with dimensions and mat grip fasteners designed specifically for the chassis of your M3.When should floor mats be replaced?
Replacements are in order when your current floor mats become discolored or stained, if they are lost, if they do not fit properly, or if the velcro fasteners become damaged, causing the mat to shift out of place. Replacing with BMW parts will help avoid issues such as these.
