E90 LCI OE+ Carbon Trunk

I know, it's my E92, tap right for more info!

1:1 OE design & functionality

It's indeed a 1:1 E90 LCI carbon trunk, I just don't have good pictures of it. It uses the same development mindset as the E92 OE+ carbon trunk.

Save 9.6 kg

The OEM trunk comes in at 13.4 kg / 29 lbs. The carbon trunk weighs 3.9 kg due to its complete carbon construction.

OE fitment

The panel gaps mimic Genuine BMW parts with the needed adjustability to fine tune fitment. You should expect fitment as on my E92.

Ready to spray

The trunk's outer shell is gel coated in white, while the inner section is a glossy black, with exposed carbon.
Build journal: a special series
If BMW M had unlimited budget.

By the time the E92 GTS rolled out, BMW M had mastered carbon composite manufacturing at scale.

Yet the GTS' trunk was metal- with a car already prohibitively expensive, it seems the engineers got stopped short.

In this Special Series, I loop in my experiences with this OE+ carbon trunk route to creating a lightweight CSL style trunk for the E9x M3.

Wing Reinforcements

Alsatek can add additional carbon layers by the traditional mounting points for GTS and GT4 wings. It does not have any functionality nor fitment aesthetics. It does add a few hundred grams.

Development Plan.

In this entry, we start with the basics: I cover my unboxing impressions the E92 OE+ Carbon Trunk. It is both a stand alone product, and will serve as the basis to develop the CSL signature ducktail.

Validating Fitment.

In this entry, I back to my roots and DIY the test fit of the E92 OE+ Carbon Trunk in the driveway, and further compare fitment to my previous CSL composite trunk.
