In Reply to: BEST PLACE 4 BETTER THAN OE CARPET????? posted by Huzurdd on August 29, 2001 at 12:42:21:

You can try Roadworks Auto Floormats ( They make OE replacement carpets for the E30 in many different color choices (you can customize here). These carpets are different from the stock carpet in that the carpet fibers are thicker and longer, making the carpet more "plush". In addition, these carpets are cheaper than the OE carpets (a bit under $300 i think).
As far as finding a carpet that is better made than the OE carpet... Good luck. In my searching, nothing has the quality of fit and finish of the stock carpet. Even the Roadworks carpets are not as well formed as the stock carpet. For example, the stock carpet is better molded at the sharp angles. The Roadworks carpet just doesn’t have as sharp of bends where the carpet is molded. Also there is the issue of weight. The Roadworks carpet is a thicker fiber carpet...
Did you give up on looking for a used stock anthracite rear portion?

I am looking for a place to buy a carpet finished or made better than OE (original equipment) or what our cars came with. I'm looking for something really nice and top notch. Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks guys!!!!
