quarter panel louver question

So I bought some inserts for my louvers on the quarter panels of my 2010 camaro. When I went to install the driver side they were to long and did not match the curvature. I thought maybe they were just cut bad. I then went to the passenger side to look and the fit perfectly. After looking at them closely the louvers do not look the same on each side I never would have noticed if I did not purchase these and look that closely. The passenger side where they do fit the quarter has been replaced. To my knowledge the passenger side has not been but it is the side that looks weird. I was just curious if anyone knew if quarter panels from different years or different models were different? I thought they were all the same.

Somebody repaired your car with aftermarket parts - that sucks. And just FYI - they're called "gills", not louvers.

They may have sent you both louvers for the same side of the car also, hence it would not fit the other side. Its not a semetrical curve.

I would disagree. Gills are on the side just behind the door. If they were actual vents, then yeah, but louvers are what cover windows. They are the same as what goes over the rear window, just a bit smaller.
