    Hi Guys.

    I'm looking into getting some of these coilovers as I've heard they're pretty good and can get them pretty cheap.

    But they only list the 320-328 and the 330d, not the 330. Is there any difference in the set-up or is it that they have just missed it out?

    couldnt be sure either...think stk is rite tho...possibly the m3 is the only different set up...the 330 was a direct replacement for the 328..i think it was only engine size that changed...ive often seen this on many things...from coilovers too induction kits..the 330ci gets left out..giv the supplier a fone

    I would think the 330D and 330ci have the same set-up unless specifically states M-tech

    The answer is there's no difference between the 330i & the rest of the ones quoted. I've had my 330i Touring suspension off tonight & replaced it with 330Ci M-Sport struts, and it was a straight swap. I also have some 320Ci struts here, and they were identical. As said earlier, the only E46 to be seriously different was the M3 - and as far as I've worked out in the last week, it's WAY different!
