If the other windows are working and there is not a blown fuse then I would suspect that the motor is the problem. It "could" be the switch that operates the motor, but the motor is far more likely....

I would start by checking the fuses, the manual should tell you which fuse corresponds to your window. Do your other windows work? If not it may be your comfort relay.

Wait... so money is an issue, so you want to go with a more expensive route that will put you out of a car for days while the swap is going through?

It could also be your ABS system acting up or a problem with your wheel speed sensors. Also different size wheels/tires (mismatched) can cause the problem.

I'm not sure about the part number but the 318ti springs will not work with your car. All of the 6cly non-M3 springs will work. It is common for the original spring coils to break particularly near...

Any E36 6cly diff will fit, one from a 318i/ti/is will not due to differences in rear subframe and drive shaft length.

I don't think you need them on coilovers any way. Those are called a bump stop. They just help if the suspension bottoms out. If they are adjustable you will want to slightly lower the spring rate to...
