The 2013/14 decklid has the same dimensions as the 2010/11/12, and the same hump under the faux gas cap, but it adds two rows of holes for the factory decklid panel. The 2013/14 panel can be mounted to a 2010/11/12 if you remove the tabs that align with the holes in the decklid.

Here's a picture I saved from either this forum or some other:

And here's one of the 2013/14 panel on a 2010/11/12 car:

That's not a hump ^^ My '14 actually HAS a hump in that spot - the circle extends out from the panel itself. It's not recessed as shown above on the '10-'12s.

I found out the hard way because I ordered a CDC rear panel, being assured by a vendor it would fit. Well things line up fine, but I have a 3/4" high bump/hump to deal with. Their suggestion? Cut it out. I guess that was their idea of fitting. They would do nothing for me in the way of a refund, so I sold it to a buddy with an '11.

You lost me. The top picture is the decklid on a 2013 car, with the gloss black plastic panel removed. The circular area at the center, under the faux gas car, protrudes about 3/4" - 1". It's not recessed (I have seen photos from a better angle, but cannot find one at the moment).

AFAIK, the protruding hump is the same on all model years from 2010 thru 2014. The only difference is that the '13s and '14s add the two rows of square holes.

Ok, from the angle I was looking at, it appears recessed, sorry about that.

That being said, the CDC panel made for the '10-'12 has a projection from the back of it, that will not like it fit the '13/14. The vendor's suggestion was for me to cut out the bump in my decklid, but I refused to do that, in case I wanted to go back to the stock panel.

Sorry for any confusion.

your talking about the cdc panel with no faux emblem right? i think they made those like the rtr decklid panel, where you would actually have to cut out the protuding portion of the trunk (where the faux cap goes) before you can attach the decklid panel (which is dumb).

Correct. The vendor (well known) stated clearly that it fit '13-14, with no mention of having to sawzall off part of your factory decklid. I hate the factory panel, and the CDC one matches the panel on either side of the license plate. Maybe down the road, they'll come out with one that will actually fit without requiring hacking up the oem decklid.
