WeatherTech fan here. Until we changed our lifestyle to never experience snow again, we had WeatherTech in every car we had in Michigan winters. I don't understand the "smashing" against the side of the floor area. We always sat down and before turning legs into the car, knocked our feet together to drop off as much snow as possible. With that and the WeatherTech raised edge mats, our carpet underneath always looked like new after several years. No other mats before helped contain the normal remaining drippings/melting, especially traceable by the white salt crust which used to surround the mats on the carpet before finding WeatherTech. But, never found any stains/marks on the sides of the footwell areas...

OTOH, I don't particularly care about the logo one way or the other.

The BMW mats are garbage, try living somewhere with cold where the car is essentially frozen for consecutive months.

Not saying to smash feet against side. Sorry if I was confusing. I was trying to make a point that the floor carpet runs so much higher than sides of the mats that an extra inch or two on the Weathertech mats isn't going to help you if you are already carelessly dripping excess snow against the side carpet/edge of mats. If you knock off all the snow before you fully enter the car, any leftover snow that melts from the bottom of your foot is never going to fill up the water retaining grooves of even the OEM mats. I've never had an issue with any manufacturer's OEM all-weather mats and still don't see the need to go aftermarket on mats personally, but to each their own. I was just adding my useless opinion and poking a little fun, because, well, it's a forum and I felt like it.

Just,looking at the IND site for info on the mats they sell,

"The new F87 M2 lack the traditional ///M embroidered floor mats typically seen in M cars of years past. We at IND now bring our ever popular custom mat service to the new chassis.
We start with an original BMW floor mat, add custom "///M2" embroidered logos, and then match the Polar Blue stitching found in other interior details from the factory.

So how do they get away with adding the above and not getting hounded by the copywrite police? They are modifying existing product and adding a copywrite (we assume) badge then selling the whole lot for a profit.

61 stupid people! PM-ing you my email for a pair!

I have the weather tech branded ones in my F22. my wife has the BMW branded ones in her F30. they are exactly the same. like exactly, like they are made by the same manufacturer.

I don't mind the weather tech logo but I like this "mod". I still haven't figured out why people love measuring sausages on the internet though. . .

Is WeatherTech using hook and loop fasteners? Didn't buy because of the mounting system as shown in the OP's post.....
