can i swap in 1m suspension?

hi there,

found a guy selling a full 1m suspension, any chance my e92 335i could fit the 1m front and rear strut/shocks and springs?? Obviously they were originally designed for the m3 so that seems promising but i was unsure what the different spring rates would do to my handling, or if they could be installed very easily?

I currently have the sport package so any thoughts or comparo's to sport setup would be appreciated

1M/M3 Front struts will not fit the non-M spindle. The bottom of the strut is bigger in diameter (about 4mm, IIRC) and will not slip into the spindle.
