Will these fit E92

He said they were on his E93 but the part number on them is 29053 which is for E92 I believe.

While it will likely be fine, H&R shows part 29053-2 for Convertible models.

It only shows 29053 with the -2 or -1 which is weird. I just want to make sure I'll be fine

If I'm not mistaken, e93 have different spring rates than that of the e92. So maybe a little stiffer than that of the e92?? Maybe somebody can chime in??

So fitment will not be a problem, just the stiffness is different. Wonder why

That would make sense. The vert is a bit heavier (assuming) so spring rate is stiffer. I wonder if anyone has tried E93 springs on E92

No, fitment is the same. Just the spring rate. The vert is heavier than the coupe. That is why they have two different part numbers.

So I did more research and looks like the vert is 400 lbs heavier than the coupe. Since these springs are Sport plus for the vert, I'm assuming they will act like the Race style on the E92.

Does that make sense lol

Well, you are going to have somewhat of a rough ride for a daily driver. But that is just my opinion. I just don't want you to spend the money and then figured out the hard way that is not what you wanted. Just giving you my opinion.
