physically yes, but the spring rates on the rear will be wrong, probably resulting a lower ride height at the back, and under sprung suspension reaction

looking at the axle ratings from Eibach, the Saloon is 1135kg and the touring is 1200kg on the rear. front axle is the same.

I wouldn't do it. Rear already sits too low.

As mentioned earlier, spring rates are different and hence companies are making different springs for e90 and e91.
I have e91 M sports spring.
Feel free to send me an offer.
