BMW Z3 Floor Mats & Carpets
The BMW Z3 is a sleek and sporty two-door convertible or coupe that was manufactured from 1995 to 2002. Replacing or upgrading your BMW Z3 floor mats is a smart way to keep your Z3 well maintained while providing the level of protection from the elements you need. You have a wide variety of choices for your floor mats and carpets, and both help keep your car clean.What BMW Z3 floor mats and carpets are available?
You have lots of options for your BMW. First, you should determine the level of protection you need from the elements. If you expect light to moderate exposure to rain or snow, you might consider carpeted mats which will provide some protection against water and dirt. You can choose from plush or loop designs in a range of thicknesses. Most carpets have been treated to be stain and water resistant, but will not give you full waterproof protection.
If you need heavy-duty protection against snow, rain, mud, dirt, or other debris, you might consider rubber mats. Rubber floor mats will give you excellent protection against the elements; some even feature a slightly raised edge designed to catch any liquid and prevent it from spilling over onto the existing carpet.What is the difference between universal and custom BMW mats?
- Universal floor mats: Universal floor mats are designed to fit virtually every vehicle on the road including your BMW Z3, and are typically available in several sizes to ensure a fit which is closest to your car's dimensions. They will provide good, but not 100%, coverage of your car's floor space. To order a universal mat, carefully measure the driver's and passengers' areas and choose the size which is closest to your Z3's measurements. Some rubber universal mats have trim guides to help you make them fit even better.
- Custom BMW Z3 mats: Custom Z3 mats are designed to fit your car optimally and cover all of the available floor space since these were manufactured specifically for the BMW Z3. You may also opt for those embossed with the BMW logo to further personalize your car, or choose from a range of carpet or rubber styles which will provide excellent coverage against the elements.
OEM floor mats are those which were originally manufactured and installed on your BMW Z3 as it came out of the factory. OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, which is BMW or one of its subcontractors. Since BMW manufactured only a small number of floor mat types to fit your BMW Z3, you will have a limited number of options from which to choose.
Aftermarket floor mats are those which are designed and manufactured by an independent company but are made to fit your BMW. Because there are many companies making aftermarket mats for your BMW, you will have a much larger range of colors, styles, and options when making your selection.
