Default OEM Floor Mat Lock Install

For those that wondered, BMW does have an OEM floor mat lock. I created this thread to help with the install. My car came with aftermarket floor mats so not sure what the OEM ones look like and if they have the hole for the locks. I only found one thread on another forum but it didn't give enough information, some information was misleading. I just ended up measuring and opening a hole to clip the top and botton of the plastic doughnuts. Then the lock/threaded plastic clip, just screws into the carpet. The BMW part number is 51 47 1 919 171. Only thing I was not liking, was the lock itself. When you lock it and then swivel the triangle down, it does not file in the hole. So in the picture, it looks like it is standing and just a little sits higher than the upper doughnut. You would need 2 per mat. I don't believe that the rear mats will need them.

Now to figure out the e46 mats.

Here are the pics:

Did you do anything to reinforce the screws when they screw into the carpet? mine are now thoroughly ripped out of my e36, and it's got the same little plastic clips.

I didn't do any reinforcing. I do see that with time, the anchor can eat away at the carpet. You can alwasy go underneath the carpet, remove the worn out insulation and patch it with a stronger more new insulation to give more bite on the anchor.
