Are/were the M mats substantially different/better than the "regular" mats we new get? Mine is MY12 6/25 build date, also doesn't look like M mats to me - I presume M mats have the ///M emblem?

No offense though guys/gals, don't our cars have enough ///M splattered inside and out already?

Yeah, interesting. It doesn't make sense which is why I'm not sure if I heard correctly. At any rate, not a big deal

You still got to play with it in Germany for awhile.
If you have $8K in goodies to install I assume you plan on stealing the extra fob from the wife every once in awhile.... "Just to make sure it's running well"

I think the essential difference is the ///M embroidery.



However, I'm pretty happy with my regular mats. They feel nice. I ended up getting a set of all weather mats as I really don't ever use carpeted mats... (and there are no ///M specific all season mats, just the same ones as for the regular series. They look like this:

Picked up an hour ago...

Just to update my post above on the ///M mats: My sales guy tried to swap them, couldn't find any, so went and grabbed the GM, who explained to me that BMW doesn't ship ///M mats anymore. I *think* (not sure) I also heard him say BMW doesn't make them anymore? He said his M6 didn't come with ///M mats either.

Congrats to all and thanks for the great pictures. Are you most of you guys leasing, or buying and planning to keep the last of the NAs? (I'm considering the latter and joining you 13s)

Hi Carl,

I bought mine to keep forever I hope.

I suspect I will want the new M3 too. I predict it's going to be better in most respects than the current E9X model, although the new turbo-engine's sound will never match that of the S65's.

However, I prefer not to buy cars in the beginning of their model cycle if possible, so if we pick up an F80, it will be at least 4-5 years from now. And my plan is to keep the E9X M3 too. It is the last of an era, a quarter century of naturally aspirated M3's setting the benchmark for its class.....
