Who makes the best fitting/looking CSL trunk?

I am going to buy a carbon fiber CSL trunk. Who makes the best fitting and looking trunk? I searched, but found nothing really concrete. Would love to hear some real word experience. If the trunk had to be fitted, let me know what had to be done.

Post pics if you have them please. If you are a vendor send me a PM with your best price and tell me about fitment along with a link or pictures. I have a 2010 e90...so one that will fit the LCI. If you have a used trunk, let me know as well.

Thanks in advance or your input!

Pictures would be great...thanks.

The cylinder doesn't matter to me either. I don't think I have ever used it.

I compared some CSL trunks before I decided to go for the Duke Dynamics...For me, it's the best high kick i've seen & the fitment is 9.5/10

I have a Seibon CSL trunk, I'd say fitment was 9.5/10, no placement for badges and it looks nice. There is a very minute difference in gap, on the top, but it is nowhere near being an eyesore and quite negligible. Love it and weighs 10lbs!

Pics? I have looked at the Seibon on ebay...just can't decide.

Did anyone change their hydraulic hinges for the trunk when swapping to a carbon fiber trunk? My paint shop today said the weight difference might make it necessary to go to a light duty hydraulic hinge??

I didn't bother changing mine. But yes, the trunk is so light & you need a little more force to pull it down.

Thanks...I will look into it. How long have you had your trunk installed? My body ship said over time it could indent the trunk lid because of the pressure.

Thanks for your order.

Your trunk is going out tomorrow.

Make sure you post up pictures once it's installed!
