335d spring difference between other e90 sedans?

I was wondering if anyone can tell me if there are any differences between springs from a regular e90 sedan vs. our 335d springs? I'm looking to buy a used set of h&r sport springs / bilstein shocks from a member off these forums and I looked on H&R's website and there are different part numbers for the 335i and 335d.

The guy selling the setup has a pre-LCI e90 335i. If anyone could help me out because I would love to pull the trigger on this setup.

Probably not a good idea. The diesel engine weighs a few hundred lbs more than the gas version.

The springs off my sport suspension are labeled D6 and D8. The suspension gurus will be able to help you determine suitability with that info.

Edit: A little more info I found while searching: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=156

the 335d weighs 191 lbs. more than the 335i. Its engine is 220 pounds heavier
than the 335i's.
