I have installed a trunk rack on mine and used these washers with the Rack risers. They risers give you a larger footprint to spread out the weight better.;ID=457800110;ID=457800110

They work great no cracks here but I almost screwed up when installing the rack with the risers. I made all the marks for the holes with out the risers on. When when the risers are in place the mounting holes are different. Just be careful measure over and over and if you don't feel comfortable doing it then take to the dealer. If they screw it up they will have to buy you a new
That's what I did with mine, except I also added a rubber tapwasher inside the 'risers', for the rack to rest on as well. I also added oversize rubber washers on the underside of the lid and then a fender washer over that, for the head of the bolt to snug up on.

I had to ream out the risers, which are made for the 1800,in order for the 6mm trunk rack bolt to fit through. So far, no cracks after 20,00kms.
