Well, I have to say--I'm happy that my trunk pops open now that I have installed the "official" spring from Can Am. Yes, to me it was worth the $13 I paid ($6 for the spring and $7 for the shipping). But I have to say--I may be a bit of a chump for paying $13 for a 30 cent spring. I don't know if this one is specifically designed to fit in the opening, but I'm willing to bet I could go down to Home Depot and spend 30 cents on the same thing. At the end of the day--it was truly simple (you just drop it in and make sure the "tail" fits in the hole at the bottom) and you're done. $13 bucks and about 30 seconds of my time. Funny.
