What aftermarket trunks have the best fitment?

Pretty simple question. I've heard hikkatadori trunk is pretty bad in terms of fitment. Seems like I should be choosing between:
Seibon
R1
OG
AIT
VIS

Do you guys have any personal opinions on it?

Coupe, Premium package, sport suspension
No they're not dependable. You'll wait and wait and wait and...wait some more after not hearing back from your pleading emails.

^ Exactly and a long wait. I think the AIT trunk is a nice middle ground for CF trunks.

Anybody know: If I have a sub (just 1 10) in the trunk, and I get a CF trunk that I assume has no liner, will anything rattle?

I guess I would have to talk to whoever would install my trunk about that.

I installed the OE trunk liner on my Duck Bill trunk lid, only used one dampner due to the lighter weight...everything works fine! If the CF trunk lid has the correct holes use it! Be careful, don't break off those push pins you'll have internal noises that will drive you !

I guess I should ask whichever vendor I order the trunk from whether it's compatible.

For future reference for people searching: Outcast Garage told me that the AIT Carbon Fiber trunk DOES come with holes for the trunk liner, but they said some modification would have to be done.
