CSL Bootlid - Which one to buy?

Looking at buying a CSL style bootlid for my e92 but unsure which one to buy.

Is there one available which will be a near oem bootlid fit?

After some recommendations and experiences of the fitting.

Thanks in adance

Seibon & vorsteiner are probably the obvious choices if you want branded product with good rep and guaranteed fit. Seibon is considerably cheaper and finish / fit is still spot on. I test fitted one to my car last month and it went on perfect, bought from Roy at CA auto.

Seibon one seems to be pretty popular but im guessing thats because the price is quite reasonable. I like the look of the amuse ericsson bootlid, gives it quite an agressive look.

Do you have any pics of the test fit on your car? The Seibon boot looks more subtle than the Vorsteiner or is that just the pics?

Does anyone know what the ssdd ones fit is like. Thinking I quite like the idea if one? Does he do discount for forum members?

How much is a seibon one ?

I can't stand the Amuse one personally. I think the standard the CSL / Seibon one looks the part! Though each to his/her own ...

The only problem with my csl lid is from certain angles it looks too sutle where as the amuse has an aggressive look which i prefer but I can't help but think it belongs on an M3 more than the normal models.

Might be a daft question but did they actually make a csl e92. I've seen many csl e46s but can't recall seeing a csl e92 except some dodgy spy shots?

I'm pretty certain they didn't, I'm guessing they made the Gts instead and I can't see anyone putting that spoiler on

For me the amuse / ericsson / arkym bootlids only work with the lines of an amuse-ericsson rear bumper, otherwise it looks to be designed for a different car.
