TOP 7 BMW Trunk Upgrades

Now, your trunk is not something you see that often, but that doesn't mean you should neglect it. In fact, there are so many practical upgrades you can add to make your life easier and more comfortable. Some of these upgrades are on the more expensive and impactful side, and others are so simple that they will leave you wondering why haven't you done all this before?

#1 BMW Power Trunk Release

Probably, the best trunk modification you can add to your car is an automatic lift and closing feature. By upgrading the lid with a power trunk release you get remote control over your trunk. With a push of a button on your BMW key fob, the trunk lid or your dashboard, you can now get access to the trunk space, and that really makes a lot of difference when your hands are full. No more awkward fumbling with bags in front of your car ever again.

Moreover, that is not the only problem you can solve with this upgrade. A smart automatic system grants you much more control over the trunk by setting the exact height your lid stops at. And also you can forget about hitting ill-fitting things with your trunk lid when you close it. The mechanisms will stop closing automatically before any parts can get damaged.

#2 Trunk Spoiler Lip

If you are going for both utility and style, then this little upgrade may appeal to you as well. The trunk lip spoiler is a small detail that can change the whole look of your vehicle. By adding it you instantly achieve a more aggressive and sporty appearance to the back of your car.

Not only does it make your trunk look better, but it also serves a purpose. The lip spoiler provides extra downforce on the trunk which can be beneficial in high-speed driving situations. This is how it works: the pressure created by the spoiler redirects the airflow in a way that it presses the trunk closer to the ground. And the more contact area between the tires and the road, the better. That's why a trunk lip spoiler is not only a cosmetic upgrade but also a practical one as well.

#3 Custom Trunk Light

Some extra light inside of your trunk when you are looking for something inside in a badly lit area can never hurt. Sometimes OEM lights are dim and don't give enough light, but that doesn't mean you have to keep a flashlight in your pocket all the time. There is a simple and stylish alternative to that — special LED strips made for cars.

Installing them is pretty straightforward and they don't require any specific skills or knowledge. You can find a trunk light kit with all the necessary parts and instructions included in the package or use video tutorials to learn some tricks. And the best part is that you can choose the place for your trunk light yourself. That way you will get the perfect amount of light exactly where you need it. And who said you must stick to the white and yellow colors only? Here is your chance to get creative, and make something special if you want to.

LED lights are really bright, they don't heat up much and their power consumption is really low. And if strips are too much for you, there is another option — upgrading your trunk lights with LED bulbs. Of course, this is still a modification, so you should do some research first, prepare the necessary tools and learn how to wire them properly before you start. But as long as you do that, you should be fine.

#4 Trunk Organizer

If you are tired of small things rolling from side to side inside the trunk, but you have to carry them around regardless, then maybe trunk organizers are a better solution for you. They come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, so finding the perfect one to match your trunk interior should not be a problem.

You won't have to worry about stuff slipping off the trunk walls and falling into the abyss beneath the seats with a trunk organizer. Everything will be exactly where you placed it. There are compartments and pockets of various sizes for all sorts of things, so you can arrange everything how you want it.

#5 Trunk Liners and Mats

Trunk space is simply a dumping ground for others, but it might be seen as a storage area for some. However, if you want to keep your trunk neat and clean for years to come, now is the time to start thinking about protecting it. Groceries, parts, and other things can leak on the trunk floor, leaving stains and unpleasant smells. And since you don't always have room in your schedule for a good cleanup, throwing in a rubber mat can make your life a little more pleasant.

That's why trunk liners and mats exist after all. They are made of different materials, but they share one common goal — to protect your trunk floor from spills and leaks. Some trunk mats are even waterproof which makes them an ideal choice for those who often transport things that may leak or spill. There are also trunk liners with raised edges that can contain spills and dirt inside the trunk area, making cleanup a lot easier.

#6 Trunk Storage Accessories

If you often find yourself short on trunk space, then maybe it's time to start thinking about some storage solutions. There are plenty of trunk storage accessories available on the market that can help you organize your trunk space better and make the most of it.

One of the most popular trunk storage solutions is a cargo net. It can be used to keep things in place and prevent them from rolling around in the trunk. You can also use it to secure larger items that might shift during the ride. It is a good option if you don’t often have to carry such things and have no need for an organizer.

#7 Security Accessories

Have you ever felt anxious about forgetting to lock your trunk? If the answer is yes, then you might want to consider some extra security solutions. There are various accessories and devices available that can help you keep your trunk area safe and secure from intruders or your own little troublemakers.

One of the most popular options is a trunk lock. It is a simple device that can be installed in minutes and will prevent anyone from opening your trunk without your permission. These locks come in different designs, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs.

So to sum it up, no matter how reliable, cozy, and great your car is, there is always room for making it a little better.
