Carpet Sets

World Upholstery & Trim manufactures "cut and bound" carpet sets that will allow you to replace all the original carpet in your BMW 02 Series Sedans (E10). "Cut and bound" carpet sets essentially pre-cuts the carpet material based on the original layout of the carpet being reproduced to allow for easy installation. The visible edges of the carpet are bound in matching or contrasting vinyl. We can manufacture these carpet sets using either the original carpet material (usually imported), other imported carpet materials or a more economical domestic (American) carpet material. As with any soft trim, some trimming may be required and while this can easily be installed by an amateur restorer, we still recommend professional installers.

Carpet F.A.Q.s

The different models of 2-door Sedans mostly had the same chassis only with different engines and trimmings. This is why most of them used the same carpet pattern. From 1966 to 1974, the carpet where "cut and bound" like most BMW carpets at that time. In 1975, BMW switched to using molded carpet for almost all of their cars. The chasis still did not change much significantly so the old "cut and bound" would still fit in perfectly with a little trimming. The inverse is not true though where the less flexible molded carpet will not fit on older models.

The cut and bound carpet sets include all the carpet pieces necessary to completely replace all the original carpet while the molded carpet set is one big piece that should fit preciselt on the floor of you 1975-1976 02 Series sedan. Cut and bound carpet sets are designed for easy installation with vinyl binding on the visible edges. These bindings can match or contrast (your choice) with the color of the carpet. These carpet sets can be manufactured using the following materials:

   a.) German Loop (original material)
   b.) Squareweave (alternative imported material)
   c.) American Cut Pile or Nylon Loop (alternative domestic material)

While the chassis did not change for most models, the kind of transmission that the car has (manual or automatic) affects the driver's side floor because of the pedals. Also the Baur convertibles had a different set mainly because the reinforcements needed to convert the sedan to a convertible affected the floor.

Starting 1975, they started using molded carpet sets. The replacement molded carpet set is no longer available. The good news is that the cut and bound carpet set used before 1975 fits the 1975-1976 cars perfectly. The main reason being, they never changed the actual floors. They just changed the way they produced the carpet for that car.

The Touring models or 3-door hatchback models, had carpet in the storage area behind the seats. World Upholstery offers a carpet supplement that includes all the carpet in the rear and is used in conjunction with the interior carpet set.

These carpet sets can easily be installed by an amateur restorer. But due to factors like complete removal of the seats and removal of the old carpet, we still highly recommend the use of professional installers. These kits are "made-to-order" meaning we do not keep them in stock and are placed in the production line only when an order is placed. Depending on the current mass of orders in the production line (varies seasonaly), it can take 7-10 business days before it can be manufactured and shipped. Make sure to add shipping time when calculating the number of days it will take for the seat kit to reach you after ordering.
