Do the msport and regular e90s use the same strut mounts for the front and rear axels?

No. FCP Euro lists different part numbers for Sport/MSport and non-sport. (Both front & rear)

Which parts specifically are you asking about?

sport/non-sport should be interchangeable...what you really need to figure out is which part is the "better" unit to go with in the first place

The part in question is 31306775098. I understand that msport and non msport models use different parts so just trying nail it down really.

My car is an msport model so I wanna make sure I get the right part.

Go to realism, type in the last 7 of your vin and it'll give you exactly what mount is for your car.

The non-sport and sport strut tops are different. Sport ones are about 4mm shorter, and have a steel housing (vs aluminium). Some cars (mine) are specced with sport mounts even though they have non-sport suspension; a thin spacer is used to correct the ride height. Note that this is not the same spacer as used in the rough road package, etc.

Xd front mounts will also fit, but are about 10mm shorter than sport.
