Anyone put sedan coilovers on a convertible?

Just wondering if they are the same unit.
Thx.

Pretty sure KW coilovers will fit E90/E91/E92/E93

Not saying they won't "fit", but E90, E92 and E93 all have different part numbers, so there is something different, may only be spring and dampening rates based on different weight distributions, but they are definitely not the same between models.

Typically convertibles will have different spring rates or shock valving because they are heavier.

On the modbargins.com website, they have the same partnumber.
On the KW website, they are the same for the wagon and the convertible, but the sedan is different.
I would have thought that the spring rates were different.
Reason that I asked, is that another member is selling coilovers from the sedan and if they would fit the 'vert, then I would go for it.
Searching hasn't helped...

It will work. IIRC, one of the differences is that the e90 kw's have bigger bump stops.
