My car was involved in a hit and run last week.[mad] They left no note or anything[evilmad]

Looks like this:

It is all localized to one door rear driver passenger..

Is it possible to put a b5 01 door on a b5 98??

I found a car being parted on craigslist and I would like to use the shell... I dont know how that would work with the door handles and all...

or if you know of someone with a brilliant black b5 a4 and by chance they have a rear left door for sale PM me!

thanks guys

the door moldings and handles are different, so no. you need a prefacelift.

Sorry for your misfortune!

What If I get all new doors? from the facelift? how much is the going rate for those?

I would suggest holding out for a pre-facelift car

It's hard to know for sure. You can call your ins. company to check and get an estimate from a shop too. I've made a comp. claim before without any rise in premium but I'm sure there are lots of circumstances either way. You know, you might be able to buy a used door and have a body shop paint it for less than $500. That is if you do the work yourself and there is no blending of the color both ways. (Meaning: front door& Qtr. panel)

you would need fenders also to match your door trim. not sure on the going rate
