Replacing trunk lid on Mazda 6


I have a 2008 Mazda 6 sedan. The trunk lid is damaged. It seems easy enough to replace it. There is one on ebay same color as mine from a 2006 Mazda 6. Supposedly 2006 thru 2008 is the same car. Is it safe to assume that it would be the exact replacement? I know the color will not match exactly but the mechanical fit is what I am concerned about.

It is if it's exactly same model. Yes, color won't match perfectly as it goes down to how elements changed shade of it. But if you do not wash it for 4 weeks, no one's gonna tell.

Well now that's the 64k question...It seems to be but I need to know with certainty.

There are no Mazda 6-s $64K worth.
There is no telling what e-bay fella will sell you. I burned myself not so long ago, buying Lexus mirror "guaranteed" to fit, same model - and ended resining it onto the glass.
Truly, your better bet may be to buy a new lid at say Certifit, and painting it. Will cost you but at least it's fit and paint match.

Ask on a Mazda forum. Surely those people could tell you exactly what you need to know. It's better than guessing wrong.
