Hi

Does anybody know if a set of lowering spings taken from an E30 cabriolet will fit my E30 325i, 4 door, saloon.

Many thanks if anyone could answer this for me.

James

no because of the weight difference between the 2 cars, they will fit but it wont work nearly as nice as if you were to use the intended ones, it would probably bit really sloppy handling and lots of boddy roll
