Wow the CF trunk lid sure looks horrible on a white car. Super rice-o-rama. Please guys don't do this to your car!

That being said the part itself does look absolutely top notch in terms of quality, shape, finish, etc. Painting such a part to match the body or painting the majority of the part (as in the 335i pics posted) is a very cool solution.

My problem with these parts is simply the ratio of cost to weight savings. What does an E46 M3 CF trunk lid cost (or 335i or whatever is now released)?

Yes we will be offering dry carbon mirror covers for the E92 M3.

Please look for our official US debut at Bimmerfest 2008.

If the boot lid is already shipping, how can you not know the price!!! If the price is reasonable, I'm in for a buy!!!!

Agree!! If I get one, I would simply paint it all white, since my M3 is AW. I'm just interested in the nicer looking "integrated" rear spoiler and the weight savings!! I already ordered the 3d rear diffuser, that will stay in its CF look!!

The bootlid is the first release by Vorsteiner and is currently available through JleviSW. The rest of the parts have not been released and are not available at the moment.

I find the price of the bootlid very reasonable indeed!!! If I want to paint the bootlid white (AW), and maybe just leave a small strip in CF that matches the roof etc... which option shoud I order since I see you have several?

Go with the single sided, that will make the outer portion of the trunk all CF so you can leave whichever part you wish exposed

That is correct we will offer all our carbon parts in the same weave pattern as the factory carbon fiber roof panels.
