E90 335D / E90 Pre-Lci 335i Springs are different?

Hey guys, I need some help. I'm trying to buy a used set of H&R Sport springs/ Bilstein HD shocks off a guy local to me. He drives a Pre LCI e90 335i and I drive a 2011 335D. I'm assuming everything will bolt right up, it's essentially the same car with a different motor. However, H&R's website is saying they have springs for each application (different part numbers for each car).

Can someone please confirm that suspension from a 335i will work 100% fine with a 335D? I believe there were some weight differences with my car versus the 335i due to the UREA system and other little tidbits.

Your car is heavier. Get springs/dampers designed for your car and save money in the long run
