Photos of Vorsteiner's LCI trunk for the E90 M3.

Vorsteiner just sent us a sneak peak photo of their new trunk for the LCI E90 M3. This part, even in single sided carbon fiber weighs in at 9lbs! This is due to Vorsteiner's new ability to use dry carbon fiber in a controlled, autoclaved environment for an ideal resin to fiber ratio, and minimum weight as a result.

Coupled with this, all new Vorsteiner pieces now come from the factory with a clear coat finish, for easier prep.

I'll update this thread with more information from Vorsteiner as I recieve it.

Hey Nate, I thought dry=preimpregnated?

Sorry about that Richard, you're completely correct. We were having a late night last night, I don't know what we were thinking.
