e46 trunk mat in e92

Not a big fan of how the e92 ///M trunk mat looks in the e92. Have read that the e46 mat looks better. Anyone have pics of this?

Yes please, if you don't mind. I've read that although it doesn't fit 100%, it still looks better than the e92 mat. I'm considering buying the e46 mat. thank you

I had the mat in my E46, and just got the e92 mat in my, well, e92. It's a good fit and easily as good as the e46 style. In fact I really like the higher sides for spill control, but there are cutting guides on it should you want to use the full width of the trunk.

One thing I do like better is the material is grippy, almost sticky, so stuff stays put, especially as I also have the luggage net in there to keep stuff from becoming a physics lesson while I drive in a spirited manner...

I'm a bit confused now. When you refer to cutting guides, are you referring to the e92 mat or e46 mat? My preference is to find a mat that runs the full width of the trunk (if that even exists). I've seen the e92 mat and it sits in the middle section of the trunk, in between the higher sides. I think, because the carpet is gray in the trunk, and the mat is black, it looks a bit off to me.

Cutting guides are in the E92 version. The e46 version didn't have cutting guides, even though it would have been useful for the hook points. It looks OK to me. I'll try and take some pics over the weekend if you want to see it in a real car, as opposed to BMW marketing shots which always look a little hyper-real and odd.
