Scrap or Sell

About to install my CF trunk from Challenge.

Question is... what should I do with the OEM trunk?

1.) Sell it...but for how much? I imagine there isn't a big market for a 2009 m3 Jerez Black OEM trunk.

2.) Scrap metal. Roughly how much could I get at a scrapyard in VA? Is it even worth it?

I have no room in my apartment so its gotta go.

Suggestions welcomed

Sell. Track guys like having the option at times of having a second trunk with aero mounted without having to drill holes in oem one.

Assuming OP has a coupe based on their signature, The E92 Facelift was in 2011 and the trunk shapes didn't change so E92 LCI tail lights will fit on all E92 trunks. The only issue is I believe BMW got rid of the keyhole in 2010+ models.

I wish that where true... I've had mine for sale for awhile now and no one wants it... maybe I have to redo the post as "M3 trunk lip for sale... includes a free trunk"

Problem is the color. If it was AW probably would have been gone as that's likely the most common color.

You must be asking too much for it if you can't get rid of it

I acquired a second trunk for $200. I'd throw it out on your local area Facebook enthusiast group.
