    They are all made in a county you cant pronounce, they will all need some working to make fit right. Find a retailer with quick turn around so if you get one that doesn't fit you can return it and get a new one quickly.

    I think replacing every panel on my car gives me some first hand experience. I bought goodmark dynacorn and golden legion parts to find out they were all made by same place with a different sticker over logo on the box.

    Agreed. My AMD driver side fit without (believe it or not) any "massaging". Got it from Jegs.
