    Trunk lid question.

    Searched hundreds of images on Google and haven't found not one pic like mine. My v has the horizontal chrome strip above the rear plate but also has 2 vertical chromed bars one on each side. Is this an option not seen to often are y'all just removing them. Even the 3 v's at the local dealership all brand new do not have them. Was it only on the 11s. Thanks again for any info

    If y'all are referring to something similar to what is pictured here.... I think it is an add-on thing they do in Texas (??)

    Can't really find any. I'll try to see if I can post thru my iPhone or iPad directly. Don't really want to make an acct somewhere and move my pics around and try to scale them and crap like that.

    When it comes to chrome, more doesn't equal better.

    Re: Trunk lid question.

    I wonder if all of the cts vertical chrome strip has the holes to screw these in. Right where it bevels inward towards the plate it screws into the underside of the horizontal piece. It's not aftermarket. Just wondering if it was some kind of option
