Nice. I've heard and seen horror stories about the fitment. Looks a little off in the second picture (right corner).

To make sure the paint on the trunk matches the car body shops will also paint a bit of the rear quarter panels so the paint blends well.

Looked better with no emblem (IMO) but you really cant see any waves in it from the CF thats really rare especially on a replica trunk. Car looks good though nice work

No waves at all, the body shop did an amazing job with the paint. and the carbon fiber originally was great quality so it worked hand in hand.

looks great, been debating this trunk myself. Did you think about doing a fade on the top to show off the carbon fiber weave?

PS. the LCI tail lights were bought from here http://alekshop.com/products/bmw_e92...etrofit_kit_us
Thanks for looking.
