ECStuning E90 LCI trunk review (Pre-LCI to LCI)

EDIT* it's done, on post #19

Ordered the non-full CF trunk yesterday and these Euro LCI tails don't look bad.

My prelci trunk still has the holes from when I had the voltex wing and if I so happen to have to sell the car. At least the next owner doesn't have a damaged trunk.

Hey OP can u tell me if the inner lci trunk tails use the same bulb carrier/board as the pre lci?

I bought a set of lci tails and the outers came complete, but the inner's didn't come with the bulb carrier/boards.

Do you reuse the pre lci ones?

Or do I have to buy new ones? If so can you tell me the part numbers?

Thanks

What a coincidence, one of my inners also came without the board and bulb but I'll find out from the other inner and compare.

Thanks. Please let me know.

Also I find it strange that there's so many vent holes/openings in the rear of the inner assembly.

Upon further review of realoem, other pictures online, and a catalogue search, the bulb carrier/board is indeed different...

welp...now I have to buy new bulb carriers as my inner trunk LCI tails didn't come with them. SMH.

Here it is, my problem child.

So with my experience, if you installed the trunk without bolt adjustments, the trunk meets the rubber seal below the rear window at the halfway point. I am still adjusting the trunk to go at the OEM position and probably need another 3 mm to go.

Distance between the sides of the trunk to the rear quarter panel are decent. Still have to adjust.

I'm kind of anal about having a smooth surface of any parts to be installed. In my case, the trunk had a small dip (noticeable by us enthusiasts) in the middle of the CSL lip. Before labor and paint, I wish my shop had taken the time to notice it and smooth it out at least a little but anyways. It looks like the shop had no problem getting to work on the material of the trunk.

The trunk does not have a hole for the keyhole but it does have the shape/figure of the key hole, so that still needs to be worked on, on my trunk. The latches for the trunk button and license plate lights were small, so they need to be trimmed out just a bit. We ended up trimming it after paint.

The LCI inner tails fitted perfectly. No unevenness whatsoever. Same with the CSL lip lines matching the stock rear.

Very light, felt like it was 5 lbs but probably less than 10 lbs. The stock trunk probably felt like 15-20 lbs.

Other than that, it's all the small details that need to be worked but overall. IMO, ECStuning has a winning trunk that might match Duke Dynamics, Vorsteiner, Karbonwerke. I'd say get on it before pricing gets any higher.

No issues with water going down?
Since it's so light, do you have to slam the trunk to close?
