My Ride: 2001 325i
Rear coil springs question

Hey guys, long time time lurker, first time poster. I have been searching for an answer but couldn't find one.
I drive a 2001 325i and recently found out my rear coil springs were broken. i went online and found these

http://www.new-part.com/product/bmw-...fors-new-set-2

i purchased those not knowing that those werent the ones for my car. these are the one ones i needed

http://www.new-part.com/product/bmw-...ofors-warranty

I gave them a call and even though i haven't even used or received them, i would have to pay a 20% restocking fee.
Would I be able to use the ones i bought for my car anyway? I've read that most e46 rear coil springs are interchangeable but I want to know what are if any repercussions._a_

I would make sure to install the correct springs. Possibly try and sell the first ones you bought for the price you paid.

Rear Springs

Hello,

I am a first time poster and need rear coil springs for my 2002 325i BMW. I was wondering where you bought your springs from and if you could give me some feed back?

Thanks!
