My Ride: 04 325xi
non xi parts on my xi

Hello this is my first post here. I have done quit a bit of searching as a non member and can't seem to find anything to specifically answer my question.

I have a 2004 325xi and the camber on the front is very much negative. I have -2.5 on the drivers side and -3.5 on the passenger side. All parts appear to be in good working order and springs are OEM and not broken. Using various part sites I have confirmed that the upper mounts are the same between an I and xi. Springs appear to be the same. That leaves the strut as the only different part. My caster is a bit on the low side as well but equal. Basically on the alignment rack my car appears OK.

I'm just wondering what parts whether different or not are able to be used from a RWD model on my AWD model
