in the pictures you can see the diference between rear oem sport springs and H&R springs

http://hrsprings.com/scripts/appguid...elID=52&q=2001 | BMW | 325i

this is what i bought
Actually, not so strange - those in fact are the springs with come with the cupkit, part number 31019 with a TUV cited lowering of 55 and 35. Those springs are very similar to the 29484 springs, but slightly different.

Once again, H&R's part descriptions can be confusing, particularly when looking at different markets. The surest way to specifically describe or discuss H&R springs is to refer to them by part number.

not oem sports, but im running sport H&R cupkit up front, and swapped out the rear for Tien s tech and Bilstein sports. sits lower and rides softer.
swapped it because the sport H&R cupkit (which has HR race springs, sat too high in the back for my tastes.
