: I want to buy the "Shapped Luggage Compartment Mat" for my MY99 540iA Sport sedan. This car has factory navigation, and I have installed the BMW 6-disc trunk changer, but no phone (yet - I'll probably get the new BMW digital one sometime).

: What I'd like to buy is the rubber trunk mat, part number 82 26 9 405 373.

: The Circle BMW website has it listed, but there is a footnote for the E39 sedan that says:
: "Not applicable for vehicles with factory installed on-board navigation system, CD, cell-phone "

: I'm not sure what this means. Will the mat fit in my trunk? I thought that the trunk shape was the same, regardless of whether the navigation system was installed. I also don't see how the CD changer makes a difference, or the cell phone.

: I need a trunk mat, but if I order this one will it fit in my car?

: Thanks,
: Brad

For clarification the part 373 is the shallow fitted mat - it is not applicable for a car with navingation but can be used with a CD changer or telephone

There is a deep plastic box/pan part 374 - and this is the one that can be used with the CD, or tel or navigation.
The reason is that the left side fold out panel is very different when you add the navigation - it stick out much further (because you have a lot more electronics in that corner).

There is another option (although no quite as nice).
The "Universal Luggage Pan" - part 9-405-962 will fit, (but is not wall to wall) and it has panels you can use to make small compartments.
