135i shocks fit 335i?

I have a buddy with a 135i with sport package and 3k on his shocks, well I blew a shock on my 335i the other day, and was trying to find out if his shocks will work. My car has 90k, so its time for some new shocks. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Short answer: yes they do
Long Answer: Their valving is probably different, and they are inferior to e9x shocks (designed for a heavier car). Your car will be "limping"

So you are not 100% sure of this?

just check real oem shocks part numbrr for 135 and 335. if part number is same, then you can use your friends shocks n struts. its the springs that vary according to the weight of the car in most cases
