JDane07 || First mod in forever...

Well hey there everyone,

Been a while since I posted some photos of my car... mainly because I haven't bought anything since my headers over a year ago.

One thing I've always wanted was a carbon fiber, CSL-style trunk. The perfect opportunity came the other day as my [instagram] buddy Josh (joshavery0615) posted he was selling his low-kick, CF trunk. I jumped at the chance, and now here we are...

As you can see, it has a fairly low kick. Something I actually prefer...

But that looks sexy OP! Very nice! But if I could suggest one thing, is to change out the emblems on your wheels to white/black or maybe match the one you have on your trunk? Doesn't flow well with your car.

Looks great, which brand is it?

I like the low kick like yours on the sedans, high kick on the coupes.

If I went csl, I'd want the exact truck you have.

I'm not a huge fan of the CSL type trunk, but this low kick version is actually pretty nice! It basically looks like a molded m-tech spoiler.
The back looks perfect now

+1 more details on where it was originally purchased.

Also, is that carbon fiber diffuser OEM? If not, where did you get it?

Perfect. I hate those damn mountains some people put on their E90's. This amount of kick is just right, nice grab!

Great stuff...very low slung. I wish it would have been an LCI rear setup but this works well. Love the CF accent on the lid and how it flows with the CF diffuser. Great work!

Thanks... and me too. I'm a big fan of pre-LCI e90's. Just something about them (at least when they're modded).

Yeah, I'm probably gonna go back to the stock emblems on the trunk and hood (they are starting to fade a little).

Thanks! And yeah, the new M4's do have a similar trunk style.

I am actually not certain about what brand it is. If I'd have to guess, I'd say either Mod-bargains or JBSPEED.

Thanks. And the diffusor was an eBay one (it's held up surprisingly well over the last couple years).

I agree, I'm not too big on those uber-high-kick trunks.

I'm one of the few who prefers a well done pre-LCI e90 over LCI's, so it's perfect for me. Thanks!

Not much more than a stock e90; it lines up well with the bumper. Must be the picture, as it's an OEM performance exhaust and was fitted just about perfect.
