ZHP Springs

Can anyone confirm whether or not a set of ZHP springs would fit a canadian E46 320i?

I found a set of springs which I am about to purchase, but I just need confirmation that this will work on the car without having any issues.

Thanks in advance everyone!

I might be willing to sell my old springs, they're just sitting in the garage taking up space and I don't expect I'll ever go back to a stock suspension on my car. Without doing some research I have no idea what they're worth at the moment but you can PM me an offer if you're interested.

EDIT: my springs have now been sold.

So do the ZHP springs work with a stock 320i Sedan shocks all around?

These are the springs that I bought. He sold them to me for $135 shipped.

All non-M springs will fit all non-M models. With the exception of possibly the compact.

I was under the impression that you want to use sport springs with sport suspension & non-sport with its kind.
I saw the zhp springs for 115 and I passed. So I am still looking

Technically you wouldn't be stock, as the springs weren't original equipment on your vehicle.. But since they're BMW OEM, nobody would be able to tell the difference.

Are your current springs sport or non-sport?
