BMW CF Performance spoiler vs Ericsson Amuse Trunk: my spoiler was stolen

Hey guys,

I was wondering which of the two you think looks better. I haven't gotten the chance to see the amuse trunk in person before and don't know how it looks in person. Any pics to share? I've had the cf spoiler installed this past year on my car but don't know if I want the risk of this happening again.

Also, do you guys know the ballpark cost of painting the trunk mineral white and installing it on the car?

Thanks!

My spoiler was stolen earlier today, here's the scoop I posted elsewhere:

Hey guys,

Just wanted all of you to know I parked my car on the 3rd level of Yorkdale mall a few hours ago. When I returned, someone ripped off my carbon fiber performance spoiler, and attempted to steal my carbon fiber Arkym rear diffuser but couldn't because my exhaust tips block it from being removed (my muffler needs to be removed in order for my rear diffuser to be removed). No damage was done at all to my paint.

Anyways, I saw some shady guy waiting in a parked car in the middle of the parking lot, I felt something was off but didn't think anything of it. I have a gut feeling it was him. I think he was just waiting to see a new shopper park their car and steal parts before they return so it would give him adequate time to do so. Apparently car theft is common at Yorkdale mall from what I hear. Anyways, when parking make sure to park very far from any cars waiting inbetween the aisles with suspicious looking males --they're looking for customers who just arrived at the mall and won't be returning to their cars for a while.

Let me know if any of you see an AD pop up on Kijiji/eBay/Craig's List etc for a performance carbon fiber M3 spoiler these next couple of weeks.

ALSO, if anyone knows someone selling that carbon fiber spoiler in the GTA, send me a PM, I'm looking to buy.

Thanks!!

Sorry to hear about this, i hate thieves. Was you spoiler installed with double sided tape or Betalink?

What a bummer...

Well the trunks are all very different and depends on the look you're going for. I'm gonna guess $500 to paint the trunk and $75 for install if not DIY. There have been many in the for sale section of the forum, check it out.

I really like how the Amuse trunk looks (seen it in person on AW and MR). Some people think it is "too much". It is a very nice part, no need to worry about quality and fitment. It will cost you $3k plus to buy the trunk, have it painted and installed.

I really wanted an Amuse trunk but I "settled" for the performance spoiler. Now I am hoping that mine doesn't suffer the same fate as yours. I don't see how you could get it off without breaking it though. It's pretty flimsy and I used a lot of the heavy duty type 3M tape.

Sorry to hear that. Don't they usually have security cameras in parking lots? I hope they catch the guy.

The Amuse trunk gets my vote!

Thanks, I just decided to stick to the cf spoiler on once again. I like the Amuse trunk based on pictures more than any of the other types, but without seeing it in person I decided it's too much to spend blindly.
