And heres the hole on the back of the new trunk. (keep in mind the OEM trunk had 2 holes that lined up with the sticks on the back of the roundel)..
I may be mistaken, but doesn't the roundel attach to the OEM trunk handle. That looks like it may be where the handle piece attaches to the trunk and the roundel then attaches to the handle.

Ya your absolutely right! I just found out yesterday that I had to buy a new handle, and then attach it to that.

Ok so I paid 255 for the guts to be removed and put inot this trunk and all the holes needed a little molding but nothing too bad. Overall the finished product is perfect and would do it 100 times over. @e46mook i can not recommend this enough it will make your car look amazing. (you too @w0w) I left it carbon fiber for now until i get the proper funding to get it painted JB, anyways Here's what you guys have been waiting for:

you should try adjusting the rubber stoppers so the trunk sits low and it would look great! in my opinion the gaps are SLIGHTLY bigger than oem but it is even all around so it doesnt look bad at all! also are you planning on drilling holes for the oem trunk carpet?

csl trunk is definitely next on my list after i replace my brakes!

Ya they are a little bigger but nothing to complain about, and idk yet the guy who installed it said its fragile and doesnt know if drilling holes for the carpet would be worth it. What would you do about it?

w0w's m3 list:
1. meet up with imsofreaknwhite for a photoshoot
2. replacing brakes
3.Buy and install CSL trunk

Umm its solid, but very light at the same time. (if that makes any sense at all) haha like if I were to get rear ended it would probably shatter in a million pieces.
