    Will facelift doors fit?

    Since Audi would not repair under warranty i am thinking about getting facelift doors as my door catches are past it too. Will these fit a 1998 model, i've had a look and they look the same.

    They do, but you try getting a warranty claim from audi on a ten year old car.

    yea i can imagine the hassle but surely in a court of law they not got a leg to stand on.... they give a 12 yr warrenty and dont wanna stand upto it...surely they cant do that.

    Probably not but the amount of money you would have to spend to take them to court would make it really not worth your while.

    I keep meaning to take mine to them just to see what they say

    Bottom of the doors where the plastic strip is located. There's a sticky about it in this section at the top.
