I need a driver's side fender. My little dent can probably be fixed, but i really doubt it'll come out perfect since the damage is kinda awkward... plus I can just get the fender painted and install it some other day on my car and I won't have any downtime with my car as opposed to leaving my car at a shop for a day or two to fix the damage.

I found a site that sells the fenders for $130 a piece. These are replacements right? not OEM?

How is the fitment on replacement fenders?

$214 from them, $285 list...

imma see if my friend can get me one from the local dealer for cheap since his mom gets discounts for being an employee... but I don't know if it will beat the $129 + $40 shipping from the other site.

no word on the quality of other fenders? mainly just fitment

If it is a decently sized aftermarket company that makes the fender I would say go with that. Once you get paint on it you won't notice the difference, except in your wallet.

true...

here's the damage... its an old pic





the fender is kinda rolled in above the wheel well starting about about the midpoint of the rim. i just don't think it will come out like new. plus i had two small dents on the top portion of the fender near the hoodline. might as well change it huh?

I was talking to a guy at a bodyshop when I was getting estimates and he said that replacements fit fine except near the lights. That seems to be the only place where they have issues.

sorta like replacement bumpers right? some don't line up properly near the headlights. hmm

my friend might have spare fenders if he buys Z3 fenders. i hate dealing with cosmetic damage
