In Reply to: trunk storage system snafu posted by David on February 07, 2000 at 11:51:48:
: I ordered a trunk storage system for my 2000 estoril blue m roadster (which I picked up 10 days ago). Since I just purchased my car, the parts department at the BMW dealership ordered the storage system for cars produced after April 1999 (part # 82 11 0 008 731). This is the storage system pictured in the '99 update accessories catalog at the top of page 64 (the one with three pockets instead of five). When I removed the liner of my trunk lid to install the storage system, I noticed that the shape of my inner trunk lid was the same as the trunk lid on page 64 at the bottom of the page and not the top. This is supposedly the trunk for pre- April 99 cars. I also noticed that there is an opening for the 3rd brake light. The picture of the trunk lid on page 64 shows the opening capped. Any ideas or suggestions. My VIN # is WBSCK9342YLC92332. Could this car have been produced prior to April 1999?
