    Streamline CSL Trunklid Issues

    Just wanted to post about the CSL trunk I just received from Streamline.

    Paintwork and bodywork seem rushed. Visible sanding marks, fish eye in the paint, runs, crap stuck in/under the clearcoat, and like chips in the paint.

    Only the holes for the lights and lock were cut out. On the OE CSL trunk, the tag light holes are recessed, on this, they're just poorly cut out.

    Then the trunklid sits too far out on the passenger side and looks almost unlatched. Have spent hours adjusting from every point possible only to get this far.

    These were advertised as fitting "perfectly" and "to the millimeter".

    Spent over $800 on this

    Holy cow, that is crap fitting.

    You could check this guys channel out on youtube, as he had the same issue: twinline garage

    He had to "massage" the one he got from ECS-Tuning to get it to fit perfect.
