2012 floor mats

Hello all,

Are the floor mats that are now free on 2012 M3 the plain kind, or the kind with an embroidered M3 logo?

My ED M3 came with basic plain black mats when I picked it up in Munich. I just want to make sure I get the right mats once the car arrives stateside.
Thanks.

The M doesn't come with M3 mats. You just get the plain ones unless the dealer is willing to throw them on for you.

I took European Delivery three weeks ago and my car came with plain black floor mats, which is fine with me. I recall that they felt nice too. Personally I think the M3 logo floor mats are a bit overkill, especially when you've got M3 badging right there, maybe six inches away, in the door sills!

Considering that both mats cost the same and that they are standard equipment now, having the M3 mats at delivery would do no harm at all to the dealer.

I agree. Dealer gave me the M ones for free.

I bitched to my CA about not getting M3 mats and he swapped out the plain ones at no charge.

What? Are you implying that there is such thing as too many M3 logos!?!? Blasphemy!!! I shall not be satisfied until I have M3 logos tattooed inside my eyelids!

Shame on BMW

Simple fix. After I picked up our new M3 and saw the cheapo floor mats that came with it I just called the 800# and they agreed to give us the real M ones at no charge. $80,000 + and they cheap out on the mats? Really?

I'm not too big on the "M" mats unless they are rubber.

If they are carpet also, easy pass. What material are they?

Mats

I took delivery at Welt - plain black mats. No M3 Mats for sale in the store there either. I will ask my dealer.

I have always received FREE mats on every car I have owned except the M. My dealer would not budge on the mats so I purchased them online. First time I did not get any with a new car purchase. My car did not even come with the non-M ones as someone else has mentioned.

Your car is pre-2012. This thread is about 2012 cars and mats, since mats are now supposed to be included in our cars.

Has anyone picked up an ED order from Steve Thomas BMW in Camarillo? Do they throw in the M mats?

My 2012 E93 was redelivered at my dealer's with the plain mats. I asked for the M mats and was told they weren't part of the negotiated deal. For $1K over invoice on a walk-in purchase without even a test drive, I have to say I'm disappointed.
