Awesome! I am thinking of possibly doing the trunk mod as well. Can you review the fitment of the trunks and LCI lights and if there were any issues installing the LCI trunk and lights on your 08 M3?

fitment was flawless all the holes were preped in advance from karbonwerkes , only had to drill open the holes for the bumpers stopers which took 15 min , didnt bother to mention to andrew considering it didnt take long to adress , lights fit in perfic , only issue for me at least is the reverse lights which im going to the dealer for the updated software , other than that it was plug and play

Finally, someone has done this conversion. Update us on the error for the lights, this is the only concern I have. Otherwise, looks awesome!

Everything works fine the blinkers , brake ect.. Only the reverse lifts don't light up , I'm told the dealer will update software or the new tail lights , will keep you posted !!
Man what a cosmetic difference I love the car even more now ! ( finishing touch )

Good to know about the LCI light conversion but can you tell me your M's built date? I was thinking about getting the LCI trunk/light conversion.

Is location "ct" in the USA? Because in the USA MY2009 started production 09/08.

So "ct" in lower case letters is Connecticut, the OP drives a MY2008 E92 M3 Sedan produced in MY2009 but no LCI but with an LCI CSL trunk... no wonder why the reverse lights do not work.

This is a complete anomaly, but it looks good.
