I have a 98 with sand interior. When I bought the car new, I ordered sheepskin covers for the front seats. (I had an 82 280zx 2+2 with sand interior and had sheepskins for the 14 years I owned it and the seats looked BRAND NEW when I removed them prior to selling the car.)

I opted to pay extra and get the sheepskins that are sculpted with the actual lines of leather seams so it is less obvious you have sheepskins on the car.

I think I got them from Blue Sky Motoring Accessories. They are out of San Diego.

My car came with floormats, but I elected to place floormats over those as well that are more durable.

For the backseat, when I have to take my dogs, I have the BMW backseat cover which has pieces for the rear doors as well. Really protects well.


I'm expecting delivery soon of a 2001 740i Sport with a sand interior, and I'm wondering if you have any advice for preventative maintenance for protecting the interior.

For instance, sand interiors tend to show more marks from shoes around the doors and the floor. Any suggestions on minimizing these marks (other than wearing clean, white shoes? :-) Are these marks usually easy to remove?

Does the 7-series come with floor mats? If not, any suggestions on where to get mats, other than from the dealer?

Finally, any recommendations on detail shops in San Francisco?
