The lines of the Vorsteiner trunk are less busy than the Duke Dynamics one. IMHO, the simpler the better. Not a big fan of those creasy, too much detail body kit pieces.

Duke's FRP version does look like it fits pretty well.
The price differnce between DD and Vorsteiner for non-CF is $420, and $236 for CF, that should help you decide as well.

I like the extra pinch that the Duke trunk lid has.

Vors has officially finished this product....meaning, order now...delivery and installation will be very soon.

DD...history...4-6 revisions, need to arrange shipping from canada, and maybe 3-4 months later...you get your item.

So you need to ask yourself, is cheaper worth a 3-4 month wait??? Personally...I don't like to wait once I know something is available and done.

Here are a couple of more comparison photos for those interested. Good luck making up your own mind on what fits your style and budget.

Look at the angle. The person who took the picture of the DD trunk kneel down for a ground level point of view, that's why you can also see the tires. While the angle of the Vorsteiner hood appears to be normal, just point the camera down at the trunk. Not to mention both E92s have diff trunks.

I prefer Vorsteiner because of the fitment and their guarantee of perfect fitment.

I like them both very much but only in Carbon Fiber. The only diff I see in the two designs beside the obvious vorsteiner is shorter. I think I like the vorsteiner design a little better but wished it was taller. Here I have pointed out the slight diffs.

Jesus christ, for the last time, the trunk is OPEN! No idea why he'd post pics with it open, but he did. With it shut, it's flush.

I like the DD one too. Just wish it came out a lil bit instead of going up

Yeah, tell that to the guys with the trunk lids and cf hoods. Their stuff isn't guaranteed to fit perfectly, stop dreaming.

They make beautiful stuff though. Over priced too.
