My Ride: 2000 328ci
Don't know what springs I have

First post. Just bought a 2000 328ci with Sport Package. The guy I bought it from told me that it was lowered by a previous owner so he didn't know anything about how it was done. Front measures 13 1/8" (333 mm) from wheel center to fender lip, rear measures 13 1/4" (337 mm) from wheel center to fender lip. The car drives great! My question is, what is the best way to determine what I have? I haven't jacked the car up to look underneath yet. What do I look for??

Take a few high quality pics of the springs & shocks, show any and all numbers and letters that you can see.

Then post them up.

Thanks SK330ci. Pulled off the wheels and found Eibach P/Ns in the springs. Front: EW2067001VA and rear: EW2067102HA. Searching E46fanatics site I found that they are from Eibach Pro-Kit #2067.140. Sorry to waste your time. I didn't think it would be that easy to figure out.

Your welcome.


Keep them, those are very good springs.

Your top shock/struts to use with them are:

1) Bilstein Sports
2) Koni Sports
3) Koni FSD

If you have OEM shock/struts right now, they'll fail fast with any aftermarket springs like those. So start saving for your new purchase.
