Carbon fibre boot lid

Was going to get a CSL style boot lid from China. Cost is $350 US plus about $260 US by sea or $495 by air for 1 or 2 units.

Air freight is costly but not too bad for 2 units. If anyone in Brisbane is interested in a unit it might be worth while.

This for E92 135i coupe btw.

The love child of a 1 and 3 Series.

I'm guessing he meant E82. Tough crowd.

Have you bought from these guys before? I've never personally heard of them before (alibaba) but would be interested in a review of the quality and fitment. The website is a shambles and looks like a brothel, hopefully all goes well.

alibaba is a website that lets you buy stuff from china. think of it like chinese ebay.

some stuff is great, some stuff not so much, but it's all cheap.

Alibaba is waaaaay bigger than eBay, so I've been told..

I have seen a carbon fibre boot lid from there and it seems well made. They come with only the holes for the hinges . Any other holes have to be drilled. Not too hard to do.

Some of the BMW specialist sites sell these items but at a decent middle man price increase. You can buy direct from China in any quantity. Volume=cheaper I'd guess.

I sent a couple of enquiries to check prices and got the same responder from both.

Shenzen Coowei Automotive Bodykits sell them singly.

I've been advised to stay away from sea freight because I could get landed with port charges which might make the sea option the same as air.

But look at the carbon fibre boot lids on eBay for the E82. They are like that.

Port charges suck the balls. These were the charges for my M3 rear end which I paid 600 pounds for. The quarantine steam clean was another $400 on top of these charges. Welcome to Australia.

Jason are your trunks double sided and do all the OEM boot fitments just transfer straight across to this?

The product page he linked to states that it "utilises factory brackets and hardware".

They are single sided and you can transfer your carpet lining to the new trunk.

That's correct, you can reuse your factory hardware.
