My Ride: 1999 BMW 323i E46
Question on door interchange?

Okay sorry to sound so needy but this car is being a pain.

I smashed my door in on my 1999 323i a year and a half ago. Passenger front. There is a 2001 325i at a scrapyard here in town. The door looks pretty well the same. By chance will it fit? They are selling it for about $200 less than a shipped door so this is why I'm asking.

Thanks in advance.

Ps: if there is a topic about this I'm having a terrible time finding it. I apologize for any reposted topics or questions.

It should fit fine. Both are pre-facelift cars.

I work at LKQ, our interchange is from Hollander, the authority in OEM interchange, it shows the following is a direct interchange only.

99 only 323i sdn
99-00 328i sdn

that's all that is a direct interchange, the door may bolt up, but have a different latch/door handle, harness, air bag, etc.

Thought I should mention, not looking to sell anything or advertise my services here, just trying to help.
