Suggest some practical accessories (OEM)

I just picked up my 335i sedan last week and I want to get some practical accessories.

So far I have ordered: all-weather mats, grocery gripper and luggage compartment mat.

I am looking to get a net, but the BMW ones are not very useful. I remember my previous Acura had a net that slung across the trunk like a tennis net and you could place things in it like a hammock. Does BMW have anything like that?

What other suggestions do you guys have?

(M-Technik kit or blacklines are for later )

How about rear seat sockets. very handy. you never have enough outlets to charge a cell phone, dvd player, etc.

I like the folding cargo organizer, I have mine secured further to the rear of the trunk space with bungee cords. The compartments keeps everything in place and make a perfect receptacle for various food takeouts (the primary reason I have the organizer).

KL2DC,

is your trunk floor compartmentalized? I see some ridges coming up on the picture?

What accessory is the trunk floor?

I had 2, sold one to a member.

Bottom line is I'm very happy with mine, I do a lot of takout and ain't no way food is coming into my car beyond the trunk. Although, its quite funny at times how I'd exit McDonalds and head straight to my trunk, large drink and all

Have you seen an upgraded flashlight that fits in the stock location? the included one is but the aftermarket ones I've found so far are all lighter-plug form factor.

eh... what's the big deal with these? What's wrong with the stock armrest, just bad elbow position for you?
