Car seat protector?

Anyone have a car seat protector they like? I've got an e92 I'd like to keep looking new and I can tell my 2 year olds car seat will leave indentations if I don't get one.

Try a blanket or moving blanket, all you need is some thick padding really.

Do you keep your car outside in the summer? Some of the reviews state that the nonskid rubber can melt and adhere to the seat causing damage to the seat. That would be a real shame. Maybe a towel is the best option...

I had that same one when I had my G35. Had it outside ALL the time (3 years) & NO damage at all.

No issues for me and yes both of my cars are outside in the summer (blk seats as well). They also sure don't look like they are made of rubber on either side. More of a strong foam on the underside touching the seats, strong vynall on top. With my 5 year old, often the cleanest place in the back is under that protector, and I clean back there pretty much every week.

Drawer rubber mat, comes in matching colors for $5 per yard. It does protect good against indentations and doesn't leave colored marks. Dirt cheap, efficient, pretty, it has it all.
