Q: Swapping Body Parts Between Model Years

Can I swap the driver-side door of my '03 S80 with the door from a '00?

A local'ish salvage yard has driver-side door for a great price but--there's always a "but"--it's off a 2000 S80. My intuition says it won't fit my car, or it will fit but it won't look right. Are the doors from these two years 1) bolt compatible; 2) share the same body lines and handles; and, 3) have the same shape opening? I need a replacement door.

Do you know with some degree of certainty?
