Received a bit of a shock this morning. Now that the winter is over, I thought I would splurge a bit and purchase a new set of OEM carpet mats for the two vehicles I drive most often.

One set of 4 factory carpet mats for my 1999 BMW 740iL = Cdn$260.00

One set of 4 factory carpet mats for my 2003 Honda Pilot = Cdn$332.00

My point being that we often complain about the high price of parts and accessories for our BMW's without realizing that other marques can sometimes gouge us even worse! :eek:

I was really shocked. Usually I don't blink at quotes for stuff like that (if you can't afford to gamble, don't sit down at the game) and I'm one of the three idiots who paid C$328. for a set of RUBBER mats for my Range Rover -- but I never thought Honda factory mats would cost more than BMW mats! :D
