My Ride: 325ci convertible
Got my new vert trunk handle in the mail yesterday

Installed it today. Did not use the top part in the picture. Used the old one so my cheap a$$ would not have to pay for paint.
The reason I replaced it was because where the screws connect it was broken in 2 places so when you go to pop the trunk its like the handle wanted to come off. It was like that when i bought the car.

It took me about 2 hours. It was pretty straight forward. It would have been easier if I got the new piece painted. Removing the old glue from the original piece I reused took the longest. Then getting my led plate lights to line up with the contats was a PITA.
I took a some pics. Should I write up a DIY?

My tops down, its upset.
