Difference in Cargo Areas

Hello all. I am still searching for a good cargo liner (durable rubber) for my soon to arrive 2008 X5. I am looking for a liner that will cover the back of the second row seats when they are folding down (I did not get 3d row seating). I found something that might work: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-X...spagenameZWD1V

It does not look like it would provide super great protection so I thought that I would put it under one of the more durable, lipped mats made for only the rear area. That way, the rear area has good protection and when I put the seats down, then I have some protection for the seat backs. Thoughts? Will this work? The big question is that it states that the mat is for 2000 to 2006. I don't know what I don't know- was there a change to the cargo area from 2006 to 2007? I cannot believe how frustrating this is to find what I am looking for- I know that product has to be out there somewhere. If anyone knows where it is, your advice will be greatly appreciated.

Well, ...yes, ...there was a change in cargo area from 2006 to 2007... there is a totally new model on the market since 2007...(2000 - 2006: e53; 2007 - now: e70).

Thank you for your informative response. Please remember that not all are X5 experts as you apparently are. Many new owners come to this fourm to learn about their new vehicle. Chances are, they are like me and did not know the history of the model through the years. It is not exactly something that one asks a dealer or really cares about when they are purchasing a new vehicle.

Thanks. I think that I need one that covers the rear seat backs also. I have a rather large German Shepherd and I think that she may get cramped in the cargo area on longer trips. What type of dogs do you have?

Check out Carbox (German Company):

http://www.carbox.de/english/produkte_us.html

They have a lot of options for the 07-08 X5 including with the 2nd seat folded. Not sure if they will meet your needs or not.

Their U.S. Distributor is:

http://mats4less.com/carbox-floor-liners.html

Their website is not great but you call them they can order whatever you want.

Another option:

Hatchbag - The material is not real thick thus these tend to shift a bit during transit. Might not be great for an active dog.

I bought one of these. The drawback is that it chips between the window and inside plastic trim. The clearence is so tight on the BMW it never worked for me so I did what I could with it. You can order it to cover the back with the seat up or down. It is flexible but durable and I got it for my dogs. Again though it is not an easy off and on thing. I though of redoing mine with velcro.

Thanks, I really like the car box product: "Form Mat Vario". It is exactly what I am looking for. I called mats4less and they told me that they do not carry it. I find it strange since they are the only distributor in the US and the website that you sent me from car box is the US website. Strange. Anyhow, I emailed car box and have not heard anything from them. The quest continues.

That is disapointing assuming that Carbox makes it. A couple of years ago I wanted a Carbox product they did not stock and they were more than happy to special order it for me. It took a couple of months as it came via ship from Germany but I did receive it.
