Touring fender vs. USA fender

Just noticed that the front fenders for a Touring have different part numbers than the fenders for late model USA cars. Does anyone know if euro fenders are different? My Touring does not have side markers on the fenders.


Thanks, Cory

Not to my knowledge no, the only difference between the fenders are the verts vs. all else. I am actually trying to track down a drivers side fender for my touring

If you want some further reading on the touring vs all go through e30zone: http://www.e30zone.net/e30zonewiki/i...hp/Front_Wings

Essentially everything front doors and forward is swapable.

Wow! Great info. Thank you. I need to remember e30zone.

It's not specifically your touring that is different, it's no side markers vs. side markers which are required in the US.

If you are ever curious if a part is touring specific, just use realoem.com . You can pull up the part, then click on it to see a list of what models it was available on.

Thanks. RealOEM is my best friend! That's how I found that the Touring fender has a different part number than USA cars that also do not have the side marker light in the fender.


FYI - Not all USA E30s have side marker lights in the fenders.

Ha, I guess I should take my own advice.


I can't seem to see any difference. I know ECS carries both parts, perhaps they could tell you if you emailed them?
