    So y’all are probably going to find this pretty simple (and I’d agree), but I hadn’t seen anyone else post this... I have a 2020 M3 and really wish I had the frunk hooks with the old frunk. Rather than buy the old frunk, I opted to buy some car trunk hooks (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XV5KW39) for a few bucks on Amazon and try those out.

    The adhesive doesn’t cut it. Don’t even bother. But the hooks have pre-drilled holes, and do come with 1.25 inch screws and metal clips to help keep them from coming loose. Even those metal clips looked rather flimsy vs a gallon of milk sliding around the frunk, so I opted to get my own. I bought some #10-24 x 1 in round head machine screws (with nuts) and a few cheapo washers at Home Depot. Total added cost, under $2 I think.

    Honestly, it took longer to remove and replace the frunk once I was done. Here’s the finished result. They feel very solid; I have no concerns they will allow my take-out or heavier items to break free or damage the frunk).

    Sorry couldn’t resist. I hate autocorrect too. I turned it off on my ipad. Not sure you can edit the title.
    Try here.
    How to edit post?

    All good. If folks find the mod useful and this thread funny that’s a win for 2020 in my book!

    I have a 2020 and I do have frunk hook provisions (Oct. 19 build). You must have a later production date.
    I installed some OE hooks for $1.63

    (mod note: saw title of "drunk hook mod" and got a nice chuckle this morning :D. Was tempted to leave it as it was kind of funny, but corrected "drunk" to "frunk" in title as OP intended. making this note as if I dont, many posts in the thread wont make sense).
