Should I go OEM or Weather Tech for winter...

mats. The weather techs look pretty nice and possibly would work better (hold more slush/water) than the oem all weather mats. I have not see either in person, and would like anyones personal experience with either one.

TIA

I have the BMW rubber mats. I love them. I use them all year round. I did opt for the euro version of the rubber mats. On the driver's mat it has carpet where your heels rest. Everything else is rubber.

euro front mats - bmw part #51470429182
rear mats - bmw part #51470427217

Btw... I have had WeatherTech mats on my older cars. I loved them too. I remember once, I spilled a huge XXL softdrink (BigGulp or the like) and the mat held all the liquid! I was amazed. Made for a tricky exit on getting that full mat out. I ended using a wet/dry vac!

Same here. My quick opinion is - the OEM mats are great, fit perfectly, and don't cost that much. I see Weathertech as a great option for anyone that doesn't have the OEM option like we do.

I just picked up the DigitalFit Weathertech front liners for the upcoming winter season. I purchased the OEM BMW rubber mats for the remainder of the seasons as carpet is just too tricky to keep clean

I have Weathertech mats. They're definitely nicer than the BMW rubber mats. But for Minnesota, I recommend the Weathertech liners.

My OEM rubber mats say BMW, That's really the only reason I bought them over the weather tech mats. I don't have to deal with slushy snow where I live either.

Bonus: those ugly red "WEATHERTECH" logo stickers peel right off.

Mine came with hooks. It's a pain to swap the hooks with the velcro circles, but I only need to do it twice a year.
