Millenhaus Trunk Latch Review

I just finished this install and I would give this kit a "C+". Five issues: the three holes for the lock were not tapped, the depth of the bore for the lock assembly was not deep enough, the holes for the latch pins were too small, the latch handle is not quite flush with the trunk (nit pick), the instructions and pics were for a different version. Had it not been for these five things the install would have been very easy. It took about twice as long (4 hours) as it should have. If not for these problems I would have given this kit an "A".
This is my opinion only and does not represent that of any other humanoid past, present or future on this or any other planet .

Re: Millenhaus Trunk Latch Review

You might want to give them a call. Perhaps a bad one slipped through. Previous reviews have had high praise for the quality of the unit. I don't recall anyone have one fail and installation issues usually were related to the fact BMW didn't design this to be a swappable part so it's not a 10 minute fix.

The reviews were all positive and that why I went with this latch. Thanks for the reply, but it's a done deal. I was able to fix the problems and move on to the next LT upgrade = J-Pegs.
