Review - **********s CSL Trunk & BMW Aero Kit

So in early August, I got rear-ended in my E92 335i.



I knew as soon as I saw the trunk was bent that I wanted to get a CSL trunk, so I shopped around and ended up getting the trunk from Jurrian************.

This is their FRCP CSL trunk for E92's. It came packaged but here's what it looked like when it came out.





As you can see this is a fiberglass piece. Which is fine, it was easily picked up in my hands so I would guess it is somewhat lighter than stock. I didn't weigh it.

I also ordered the BMW Aero kit to replace the rear bumper and add the front lip; the trunk spoiler was not included.

The fit on the trunk is actually great; its not factory perfect but there aren't any real problems. My body shop was able to make everything go right where it was supposed to. I can recommend this trunk to others. If I had it to do over again with the color of my car (Monaco Blue) I'd probably have gotten the carbon fiber one and left it unpainted. It wouldn't be too contrast-y with my color.

Here are the "after" pictures.

How difficult was it to get the paint to match the rest of the body? Based on the pictures, it looks perfect.

Not sure, body shop did it obviously. They didn't say anything about it being difficult.
