      Two things.

      1) most of us are American and drive us spec vehicles.

      2) I can get you a trunk no problem.... But the problem is due to its size and weight it will have to be cut in half to be mailed to the states.

      how do you put your guys rear plates in then? You could ship it without cutting, it would just cost more. If you let know how much a trunk would be for shipping that would be great

      The long plates are not the only plates you can get in Europe, buddy. There's at least 3 different sizes.

      Shipping would, I would estimate, around 300 euros through DHL based on the size and weight. It's too big for USPS.

      I would be willing to pay 300 euros for a reflex silver trunk lid with the longer plate cut out, let me know guys

      I'll do some hunting for you when I get back to Germany. If I find something you'll need to PayPal me the cost of the trunk and at least 300€ for shipping. After that I'll find out how much it will cost to ship it, if more is needed I'll let you know, if it cost less I'll refund you the money.

      If that sounds good then we can press forward. It's going to take me sometime to find this, so it won't be a quick process. Once it's located I'll let you know.

      €300 sounds a little like a pipe dream.

      In reverse, I asked ECS for a quote on shipping a rear valence and was quoted damn near $500.

      Shipping here is different than shipping stateside. I assume you bought your valence from a company, and some of them have contracts in place that allow them to ship larger items.

      But believe me, you can't ship a bumper, core support, trunk, or a dead hooker USPS if it's over a certain size and weight. Only route is DHL and it's €€€€

      You're talking small stuff. Shipping a cold air intake is NOT the same as shipping a trunk.

      Shipping a trunk through DHL is 68€ ($90) if you bent the top edges, because it's a bit to long. DHL ships up to 120cm, a trunk is around 123cm at the longest side.

      Got a DIY kit for an euro trunk laying around, lmk if you're interested. Plate cutout, wiring loom and trunk inlay for warning triangle.
