E90 Ericsson Amuse Trunk Options

Looking at historical threads in this section doesn't offer a lot in the way of details on Amuse replicas (fitment, quality, price, etc). I was hoping that there were fellow E90 owners that would have experience and/or recommendations on Amuse replica brand trunks (either CF or FRP) considering that I've recently learned the authentic Amuse trunk apparently isn't manufactured for E90s (only E92s).

Any feedback or advise welcomed!

I don't recall there being any real good replicas.

Curse my E90 rear, haha.

Well, that would explain the lack of threads on this topic I suppose. If anyone else thinks of an option, let me know...

p.s. I do see some places that hint Ericcson made a pre-LCI version of the trunk but I can't find anything definitive...hmm...

The trunk is cool, but always thought that rear bumper made the car look like a 335i at first glance.

Check out this link....I know there used to be some replica Amuse trunks going around for e90's and e92's however I am not sure which vendors still carry these parts. There weren't that many options out for the e90's but I know several vendors carried several different variations of Amuse replica trunks in both carbon and frp several years ago. Here's the link.....

Here's an attached photo of one of these replica trunks on an e90 335i. Hope this helps.

Absolutely zero response from Alpine after PM'ing, emailing, and calling (went straight to v/m). Guess they aren't interested in my business. Shame on them.

In any event, found another option: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=610198

JGMods makes a pre-LCI replica for E90 sedan and got a quick response from Jay so I'm just waiting to find out if any are in stock...

I was unable to find any threads complaining about the fitment (https://www.google.com/search?q=+sit...+amuse+fitment), what did you notice specifically in those pictures?

Fitment is always an issue unless you pay around 1800 plus
