328i vs 328i xDrive lowering Springs- Is there a difference?

I have a 2011 328i xDrive sedan. I am planning on lowering it with H&R Sports+Koni Yellows. My concern:

I saw on the Suspension forum the part # for H&R Sport Springs are 50490.
I see some websites have 50494 or 50492. Is there a difference between xDrive springs, or regular sedan springs and even coupes?

Which is the one I need and if there is a website you have as good as Turners Motorsports, please provide. THANKS A LOT EVERYONE!

Don't ever expect a reply over a weekend when everyone is doing other stuff.
Sorry I can't help you on the spring question; you should check realoem to see if the strut assembly (the part holding the shock cartridge and spring) is different (in the front). I would expect a difference in that case (and I think the struts are different.)

struts i understand will be different between the awd vs rwd. it was just the spring question. but my guess is that it too may be different.

thanks for your input
