330i ZHP's touring is definitely the nicest Ive ever seen along with the official concept E46 M3, Im embarrassed that I even posted a pic of my POS now!

What method are all you guys using to remove the roof bars, fill over holes and spray or is there a trim kit that can be bought..?

My Ride: has a D-Pillar
My rear OEM sport springs are shot. Can I replace them with any E46 rear sport suspension (such as ZHP?) or are the rear springs specific to touring? Thanks

I know they fit but aren't the springs a little stiffer on the wagon? H&R has wagon specific springs.

So non touring springs will likely sag a little more making the uneven fender gap even worse.
The final answer is coilovers
