CSL trunk?

So, I've searched the forums but couldn't find an answer. I'm looking to get a CSL trunk, and I know quite a few vendors carry them. I've seen many pictures of them in photo threads and I've noticed that some appear to be higher than others, (i/e they have more of a "kick" to them) so, I'm wondering which vendor carries a CSL with the highest kick? I'm not really looking for carbon fiber since I have a Black Sapphire and I don't plan on leaving any exposed, I'd be painting the whole thing. I'd be looking for FRP or any other variation. I have an e92 so I need one that fits coupe. But where can I get one with the highest kick?

Thanks in advance!

Yeah DD is probably the highest, but also remember all the e90 csl trunks have a much bigger lip than the e92 ones.

Found a side profile of our E92 CSL boot lid, it's probably a lot milder than what you're looking for.



If you want a a really aggressive kick and harder lines check out the ericsson esk trucks a few vendors offer.

I was thinking about going with the Amuse trunk.... IDK, I'm on the fence about it. The side profile pic you posted isn't enough of an angle (?) for me? I don't know how to describe it, but basically I'm looking for a lip that's more of a 45 degree angle to the trunk. The one you posted is maybe 25-30 degrees. I'll see if I can Google a pic of what I'm looking for. Now many side profile pics of trunks.

I Google'd a few pictures, hopefully this will clear things up a bit on what I'm looking for in terms of "high kick" (maybe this isn't the correct description) But basically I took your picture and drew some lines on it, and Google'd a "high kick" CSL trunk and drew lines to compare. I'll also include a bare picture without any lines so you can see the difference......

Anyways, here's the high kick CSL trunk:

Here's the trunk you posted with added "angle" lines: (NOTE: all "angles" are estimations for reference purposes only)

Size:  95.2 KB

And here's the "high kick" trunk with added angle lines:
Name:  Duke Dynamics trunk.jpg
Views: 273
Size:  63.3 KB


Hopefully this clears up what I'm looking for. I've been considering the Amuse trunk, however I've been a fan of the CSL style ever since I had my e46, I like the roundness of the trunk, and I like how the lines kind of accentuate the body lines of the e92. However, the Amuse trunk lines follow the e92 lines pretty well as well, so I'm not sure. I'd really have to see a high kick CSL trunk and an Amuse trunk both in person, side by side, to really be sure what I want.

If you want a tamer one just go with a trunk lip spoiler.

My DukesDynamics has a super high kick for my E90. however it was shipped in a pretty rough shape (cracks, chips, and a thin rattle canned primer).
