Default Will 1998 A8 interior parts fit a 2001 A8?

I was looking at a 1998 A8 and another 2001 A8 today and it appears that the interiors are identical, does anyone know if that's true? I was thinking of putting the 1998 door panels on my 2001.

"Identical" ? ...think you were looking at the wrong pix ... or not terribly observant.

You have PFL comfort seats in a 2002 S8 ... no cost option where they used up old stock, rather than the updated and more comfortable FL A8 seats.

I guess removable parts are interchangeable, but FL & PFL "identical" at a glance isn't my take .... Different seats, different armrests, different instrument cluster, different center dash (all switches top to bottom, all controls and radio), different rearview, etc...

So, at a glance, basic "shape" yes, but 75% of what you see when you look inside is quite different ... BUT part numbers are all that matter when swap in different parts.

My '01 A8 interior >>

Are the front and rear door panels interchangable?
