    Hi guys,

    Friend of mine is selling a lowering kit for e36.

    Its fitted to a 323 saloon, but would it fit my 316 coupe?

    Thanks

    6cyl springs are different due to the extra weight

    They will fit if you want to drive round with the nose in the air

    As Hamish has said the fronts are stronger due to the engine weight
