335i brakes on xi

I'm moving from an E92 335i to an E92 335xi and was wondering which brake / suspension upgrades I can swap over. Specifically rotors, front pads & I've even heard of people using rwd Springs on xi?

The brakes are exactly the same front and rear on both. The rear suspension is all exactly the same. You can use the I springs on the xi but the front struts will not swap over. The front sway will not swap either. Everything else on both cars is the same.

Awesome, I've also heard that you can swap the top hats from RWD front struts over to an xi and then use RWD Springs?

Perhaps. I know you can use the springs. Not sure about which top hats are needed.
