Which way to go??

Im torn between two options. I have an 08 E90 M3 so....

What are your opinions on Sticking with the Pre LCI and going with the Duke Dynamics trunk or going LCI with the M-sport Spoiler or getting the LCI challange trunk and LCI lights?

Dude I see no bad choices as long as you go LCI.

Going with the OEM trunk and a Performance-Style CF lip spoiler looks great, its simple, and will be most economical though.

I support the CLS style CF trunk. If you're already shelling out the money, might as well go big.

So you would keep the Pre-LCI and go CSL? I have the blacklines and love them I just want something a lil more aggressive for the rear.

You want an aggressive rear... just the LCI tails alone get the job done. I do love the Challenge trunk, the CSL is nice too but the Challenge has that extra cut. The silver M above does have it.

The blacklines have always looked like an afterthought to me. The LCI-style tails are an okay compromise but the OEM LCI tails with the inners is what gives it that aggressive look.

I had the black lines on my 08 before I decided to do the LCI conversion. However, if I had a pre-LCI option like pictured I might have just gone that route. I actually like the pre-LCI shape, just needs the LEDs to make it look more current.

I wish I liked the shape. I guess having a LCI 328 also spoils it..
