Let me know if you come across something You check Vorsteiner? You should have tried to get them to give you one when you bought your trunk.

I haven't been able to find one either. Maybe when they come out with one we could get a group buy going I have the 2x2 plate, which looks okay, but 1x1 would be perfect. I'm also keeping an eye out for a 1x1 CF trunk badge but who knows if anyone will ever make one of those. Also a 1x1 replacement side vent. All the replacements I know of are 2x2 and the only 1x1 is an overlay.

I am also looking for the trunk badge in carbon fiber, EAS had a prototipe in october 2008 and i have been asking them about it for months but no clue... Some day maybe, if not i will go for glossy black

I have a 2x2 license plate frame, it looks good

i don't know if this is a 1x1 or 2x2 but it's worth a loook..

BMW sells these Slimline License Plate Frames which comes in Carbon Fiber or Satin Finish. Pretty pricey though....$52 for the CF..

That's a good idea, you guys think there is a demand for it? I think we can get it done, I am already thinking of proposing it to the factory for you guys.

Anyone ever come across a 1x1 CF license plate frame? I'm looking for a thin style frame.

I'm pretty sure there will be a continuous demand for it because all the cf roof m3 owners that want a cf license plate frame would choose the 1x1 weave over the 2x2.

I've seen pictures of the BMW slimline frame. Anyone know if its 1x1?

I will probably end up getting that one either way. It's so thin you probably want even be able to tell which weave pattern it has.
