Bilstein B12 Pro kit

Hi fellows,
I have a question.
I am thinking of purchasing a Bilstein suspension from my friend. As he has bought it recently but he is planning to sell the car without the suspension. The thing is his car is e92 325i whereas mine is e92 335d. Do you think that it will be the same and run without issues. When I checked on the internet I found the following:
The one that is compatible for 335d is also compatible for 325d 330d and 335i.
As for 325i suspension is fitting only with 330i.
I am a bit confused. Can you help out guys? In general it is the same mounting and the engine is 6 cylinder.
Thanks in advance

A lot of it just has to do with the weight the suspension needs to accommodate, especially engine mass.

It seems that 325i weights 1395 kg and 335d is 1545 kg. 150 kg difference is quite much. However the 2012 model(325i) is 1505 kg
Also the kit which fits on 335d is compatible with 325d which weights 1490 kg
