Ok, ok, ok... NOW I know that it is "fender"... ;) But I am wondering a
little bit: my dictionary says that the german word "Kotflügel" (which means
fender) also could be translated with "wing". Is there maybe a difference

Also most europeans learn Enlish English:-)) Don't be concerned though, we

here, if I import it directly from the States I will pay 120 Dollar (plus
190 Dollar shipping of course)
