Best fitting CSL trunk for E92?

Been doing some searching but haven't found what I'm looking for. Trying to find out from you guys what fits best?

I think fitment really comes down the the installer. Finding a quality brand is one thing but finding a good installer is key.

If you're fixated on CSL, I'd go Vorsteiner if anything. Hell, go pick one up used on the E90post side, it's the same exact trunk. Just make sure you're picking up the right one (LCI, non-LCI).

I agree with Nate. From my experience all these body pieces (bumper, trunk, hood, etc.) are not exactly straight bolt on, and some body shops do not do these types of installs (non oem)

I ended up having my good friend do all my installs in the end...

Wish I lived in Chicago!! lol

Thanks for the advice so far.

None for sale on the E90 side that I could find.

I like the Vorsteiner the best.
