The rear springs are the same for non-m and m cars, but your best bet would be to go to Tein's website and compare the specs between the two. GL

i was actually going to look into ordering the springs for my car next weekend and i came across this guy local tht is part of cfbmw and he bought coils and i didnt know if they would fit.. so now i know they wont sooo i guess i got to look on a set of springs to buy. im debating in between the H&R race springs or the stechs.. got to do some research on it and see which one is better on the stock shocks.. I'll upgrade that when needed.

thanks for the help
