Their different. Good luck finding a decent one for a decent price. Try VIS Racing? I think that's the name.

Any idea when they will be out?

I had a tekarbon one last summer, and idk if it was just mine but the fitment was horrible, the center of the trunk bowed out in the heat and stopped my top from working, 3rd brake light was fitted horribly, and i had to alter some other things to make it work.... still looked dope though!

From what I've seen. Not a single tekarbon trunk was good. 4/10 If i was to rate it.

The csl trunk was my favorite mod on my car. Makes such a big difference in the look of the car when the top is down.
