E90 xi springs fit an E91 xi?

Can anyone tell me if an e90 xi spring will fit an e91 xi wagon? Mounting/seating on the shock the same, just maybe a bit of a difference in spring rate?

If so, would a stiffer shock make this combo work (e90xi springs and say bilstein sports)?

Anyone running e90xi springs on their wagon?

thanks

I thought H&R had a different spring for wagons. I have H&R e90 xi springs for sale if you want to give it a try.


Here's a few links from Turner for reference.

So far, only a difference in spring rate is what I can find. But do they seat differently on the shock?

I guess the same questions can be made for shocks? XI shocks compared to I, different dampening only? Or do they bolt on differently, change in clearance?
