Any cheaper copies of the Ericsson trunk????

I'm looking for the Ericsson trunk but it's way too expensive, any copies out there that may look the same, not looking for the csl type of trunk, a more aggressive type, thanks guys

We are talking about a replica part here. Do you expect the fit and finish to be on par or the same as the real deal, which by the way cost about 10 times more than the replica and is manufactured by an entirely different process?

I would wait for more pics of the E92 trunk to be released before I make my judgment.

Yes, they do. The FRP trunk is still $2500 + S&H a pop and you still have to pay to get it fitted and painted.
