E46 M3 convertible trunk pics please?

I bought mine and it seems to be missing a few things in the trunk but I can't find any good pics on here or on google images.. maybe I'm just not that skilled on looking

I would really appreciate some good pics so I can compare and see whats gone.

Thanks!

^ Yes and some trunks look different on the left, with just one tray.

Also, here are the tools. In an M3 your tow hook would be under the floor next to the air compressor.

No, the tray should be under the "center spare cover" & it has a couple plastic retainer pins in the (2) holes holding it to the trunk bottom.

Had to replace a bunch of little stuff, which includes in the trunk for me too.

Yeah, the two tabs with the holes should be under the center tray, with two expanding rivets to hold it in place. http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/51498166702/ES126861/

The left tray can be a bit of a pain to replace, *IF* yours matches what is in the yellow M3 picture above. After three tries, I finally got the right one myself. http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/51478236275/ES124609/

You will also want two more rivets if you don't have that one either.

Thanks and I think its just a couple tabs that are broken off on the battery cover and yes I need a couple of those rivets to hold it in. Also a couple other little trim pieces to cover bolt holes but think I've got the rest worked out.. next onto some mods.

Welcome.. I am in the same place with my M3 I picked up roughly 6 weeks ago now, doing refresh items all over to bring it back into mint condition and then getting serious about mods and upgrades.
