Has anyone tried or know how to mod the trunk to have it open all the way up when you hit the release button. I know it's not suppsed to but I want mine to.

Mee too. It would probably need some shocks that actually had enough tension in them to open it up. Its probably too heavy of a trunk though. I hope someone figures this out cause I would really like that mod.

My guess would be to use some hood struts. That should do the trick.

It's very aggravating to me. The trunk opens, but you still have to get your hands dirty lifting the lid. Or if you have your hands full, you have to put something down in order to lift the lid. I like the fact that it uses struts, but it would be nice if it opened more than an inch.

Wow, I never thought of modding my trunk like that!

Now I want to do it.

I think I'm going to get a force measuring device to calculate how much force is needed to lift the trunk, then proceed to buy the correct shock.

Ryman let me know which shocks you come up with. Thanks.

Cause then you've got to go shopping with the GF and spend money doing that!?

it would be nice a mod like this. Or better yet one that closes to!

Well if we're on the subject of open and closing, actuators would be the only way to go. But that would be a costly mod and time consuming to construct just to be able to push a button to open and close your trunk. Not an impossible task by any means, but a pointless one for me anyway.

The girlfriend could possibly cost MUCH more money than a trunk mod... :)

I noticed this feature on my supervisor's BMW. Really nice.
