Is BMW 330i Saloon the same as 330i?

Hey everyone, I'm Marcin. Just got me an older 2001 330i 4 Door BMW and I'm cleaning it up a tad. It has damaged driver's side fenders from an accident.

I'd like to get aftermarket fenders, and here is what i found in the UK, http://www.nicedeals.co.uk/product_i...ducts_id=10887

I contacted them by they claim this is for a 2001 Saloon Model. So my question is what is a Saloon Model? and second If Saloon model is a 4 door but a Sports Package, would that fit my 330i, that's not a sports version?

any feedback would be appreciated, the seller doesn't know themselves.

Thanks,

Saloon = Sedan, so yes it will fit. Sports or not, doesn't matter. They changed styles in 2004, but anything 2000-2003 will fit.

No, they change in 02, so only 99-01 will fit!

Imo most aftermarket body parts fit like shit, and rust in about 1 year (from the inside out!).
Pretty sure the ones from the uk are fiberglass, so fitment will be evem more of an issue!

If you need to replace onlu one, we have mint OEM fenders for $150-200 each, even cheaper if they need work...

You are thinking Coupe! And that facelift came in 04! Leave it to BMW to mix up all the years of facelifts....Like the M3 that never got one...

My friend,

Pic N' Save junkyard in Hamilton. Most you'll pay for a fender is $25-30 from ANY car. There are currently about 3 E46's in the yard, all sedans.
