Question Would these shocks/struts fit my 06 BMW 325i?

Hi,

I have a 06 BMW 325i (Not Sport Suspension) and I need to replace my stock shocks/struts since they are all (x4) leaking. I am short on budget but I found a good deal on a set of (x4) shocks/struts 08 BMW 135i (front and rear). My question is, will these fit on my BMW 325i?

I looked at some websites and the shocks/struts (all after market such as sachs, KYB, Koni, etc) they have for my 325i also show compatible with 135i. But I haven't seen a website yet that shows the original 325i BMW parts compatible with 135i.

Below I got a link to the pictures of the 2 shocks/struts with part #s from the 08 135i:

Could someone please confirm if these will fit on a 06 325i non sport suspension.

I just want to buy them for a temporary fix for the winter and until I have money to buy new shocks/struts.

Anyone have any idea about these?

Thank you.

I was looking at the following shock and its compatible list it shows 135i and 325i:
https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-shock-absorber-330i-325i-325xi-328i-335i-128i-135i-311-409

Is someone able to confirm from the part number in my pictures above if those are non sport 135i shocks?

All 135's have the sport suspension, I've had two e90's and now have an e82. I believe the shocks and struts are the same except for the most important part, the valving. So I think they will fit but I doubt anyone would recommend it.

Thank you everyone for your replies.

I actually ended up buying the E82 shocks/struts. Today I tried changing the rear shocks and I was surprised how easy they were to change. When I pulled out the old E90 shocks (150k KM) and pressed them down they would simply not come up. So, they were completely shot/leaked and I thought they were good since they never made sound like my front right one. Then placed the E82 and my old E90 shock side by side and they were exactly the same in height and looks. They were a perfect fit. Now I am not sure how the ride changes until I install the front struts too but I am happy at least I did the change myself (no labor paid).

Will update everyone once front struts are installed.
