Looks good to me! Don't see what the meaning of all the hate is. I think the man is genius for targeting a different market.

It's pretty thin. Just one layer and i was wondering how can it hold and i was tol he used two different resin mixes to maintain its shape and fit like a glove. the top piece was flemsy but the deck lid was same thickness and hardness as my ericcson i had on my car. the guy he hired builds race car for the past 20 years and he hand lays carbon as if it was vacummed infused. with the much needed two different type of resin mixes it was impossible to do vacumm infused. his carbon guy made a comment last time i was there, "Vacummed infused are for guys can't handlay". He did a trunk for a honda race car and i thought it was vacummed infused but i guess wrong. all i can say he lucked in finding this guy to work for him.

We actually picked up a couple of these (carbon and frp) and they look good...no complaints from customers either.

Of course but we can't post pricing and so on here as it is not allowed outside of the vendor section. Please PM us directly.

One ? i have is how does it mount to the oem trunk? Is it reversable? What damage is done to the paint by having this sitting on top of it with all the vibrations that a car goes through.

Kind of like a truck with the bed liner in it but once you remove it the bed is scratched.

Not bad at all. I tend to think it's just a tad overdone, but for the right price I would be interested.


on a side note, what wheels are those? They look awesome on the E90!!

I don't hate it, but need to see some close-up pics. Also, would like to see some pics of color matched as well.

FRP

buddy from Houston just had his installed and impressed. you can't ask for a better fitment then oem. i was told the mold e92 has started plug and taking pre orders for that along with LCI.. he just needs 5 e92s to commit i think but may want to contact them to confirm bc there was 5 pre lci who committed when he started.

heres pics of the painted version form Haz car
