Hey guys, got into a small accident and the only fender i can find locally is off a 2001 a4 2.8. I own a 1997 a4 2.8 and was wondering if the passenger fender off the 2001 would be a direct fit.

No. Side marker light is different. It is more of an oval and not square. Other than that, should be a plug and play. The headlight area should be a little different, but not visually from the outside of the vehicle. It is made to fit the one-piece headlamps. You will also not have that Audi emblem there.

I actually have aftermarket one piece lights in. If it will bolt up and look decent ill settle for that until summer rolls around and i can properly fix it without freezing. Thanks alot

It will also have a wider trim piece in the middle to match the doors.

^Yup, it will never look right because of the trim difference.
