BMW Sport Suspension Question

Can the BMW Sport Suspension from a 2005 325i Sedan be used on a 2004 325ci Convertible? Are they the same?

Yes. The difference between the two suspensions are the springs, the struts/shocks and the roll bars.

Sure, but why would you want to ? Especially if we're talking about Used parts because you haven't mention if you buying new or used with your above statement.

The Sport Suspension is from my 325 Sedan that I sold, and I now have the vert. Just seeing what things I can use on this car that are left over from the old car, so they are used, but low miles. I'll likely just go with a new set-up, but thanks for the info .

don't see a reason why they wouldn't fit.
they won't be exactly the same as the convertible uses slightly different springs for the weight and also slightly different sized swaybars(also because of the weight and bias).
