NO FREAKIN WAY! That's like an old school Italian grandmother with plastic covers on the couch!

Keep a nice fleece blanket rolled up in the back seat to use if something or somebody is exceptionally dirty.

Dude... seat covers on an M???? Don't do it!

Yea I wouldn't put seat covers on my M either..soft plush leather feels so good. Just keep it conditioned and clean.

I just need some because my front seat are sitting in storage w/o anything covering them and they get dusty.
I would be interested in some covers, but for a different reason

Gents.... spare a thought... I'm in the military and *sometimes* I don't have an option to clean up before we get home... or I just don't have any clean clothes left...seat covers would be good for this purpose!

Boy, you guys are real helpful. OP, I think this is your best option, not cheap but looks the best if you need to have them on your car, IMO. Ignore the color in the picture because there is like an endless number of color, style, piping options. Good luck!

I got the BavAuto seat covers for my back seat, because I have to transport my dog around and didn't want him scratching the leather. They are custom built for your car, so it took a while to get them, but you can get a choice of color combinations.

They are a pain to put on/take off, though, so it's not something you'd want to do every day.

If it's only every once in a while, just carry a large towel in your trunk (or behind/under your seat) and call it a day .
