BMW performance suspension

Does anyone know if the BMW performance suspension the same as the suspension on a ZHP or is it the sport suspension?

I have a question. Patrick from bmwpartssource.com stated that this suspension wont (this upgrade) wont work on the 323 and 328, only the 325 and 330. Can anyone link me to where it says this. I though all non-M suspensions (minus XI) were interchangeable. He stated since it didn't pull up in his system when he typed in my car it wouldn't fit...but I beg to differ. But I also can't find any info stating this. I kinda thought it was common knowledge.

Can someone point me to this info?

I totally agree, but I can't find anything that says it either way. He is relying purely on the computer screen...where we all know many parts are really interchangeable.

And the site has the whole performance suspension for $645 (same price as a cupkit but with sways and links and crap too)(all of which I would want coming from a non-sport).

I went purely off of your vin number. I am sure it would work on your car. I just am not allowed to come out and say that to you when i see it doesnt in the catalog. sorry, but I hope you understand. If on the other hand you come to me with a part number and want a price i can help you out.
