This is 11 lbs, so it is right around 11 lbs lighter then stock.

How well does the locking equipment and handle transfer from your old trunk Do they make a CF handle or do you paint a "euro" one black and hope no one notices?

The OEM off of a 96 or preface lift euro trunk fits pefect onto this CF trunk. No one makes it in CF yet but I still need to talk with Fiber Images and another person to see about having them do the stock ones with an overlay.

I'd be interested if I could keep my facelift lock mechanism


and if I had the cash.

You make me jealous, and I'm pissed!

You are most likely talking about a North American spec facelift CF trunk, I have one of those on my A4 now but will be looking to sell it so I can get a 96/euro version made to match the rest of my car.


Its the trunk at the top with all the sponsor stickers on it.

It looks like the facelift is smoother than the prefacelift.

Yeah, the facelift doesn't have the line that runs from tail light to tail light under the lic plate tub. I like the preface lift euro because it does have the line there.

I see it now!

I don't really like the way the keyhole is on the facelift either.

Facelift is much smoother, and the locking mechanism, with the 2 concealed touchpads is a good idea.

There were only 2 trunks in the UK - pre and post facelift.

From '95 - July '99 were the same, August '99 to 2001 saw the facelift.

for sure the facelift is the better looking version. i really like how the shape of the license plate tube follows the tail lights. make's it look a bit wider

mike, you really like to twist your words around don't you.. hate to bring this up. but when i read it, it botherd me for some stupid reason


If anyone knows about sponships it usually comes with a "contract" that must be signed and rules must be followed. I have yet to sign 1 contract.


then you go and say this just weeks later [confused]

I like the way the face lift angles out at the top of the license plate area as opposed to the pre face lift which goes straight up.

Wow I said "sponsors", what did you want me to call the stickers? They are just stickers of companies that have given me discounts or free parts to test. I am now a dealer for all of those companies, so basicly they are no longer "sponsors" but my suppliers now[:D]

Just all part of owning a high profile car[:p]

Would you rather me call them "rep" stickers?[rolleyes]

Now if someone would just graph the 2 together putting the bottom line onto the facelift euro, that might be a nice looking trunk.

It looks cleaner without the crease line.
