Mein Auto: 1994 530i, 1977 320i
for some springs on an '82 320i, there's this listing currently on eBay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/H-R-LOWERING...-/230805922562

Here's another one, but same manufacturer. They would be aftermarket lowering springs but I am continuing to google ....:

http://www.tunersdepot.com/BMW_320i_...ng_Springs.htm

there is some interesting info on that one page up there but let me see what else here ...

And then Rockauto has some springs, if you navigate that site, it's hard to link to but they've got non-stock springs, sold individually. I cut and pasted here:

possible link: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,ca...,parttype,7512

Add Part
BOGE Part # 250400 Spring Design: Coil Spring; Sold individually
Front Axle

- Non-stock item--shipping delayed up to 3 business days
$54.79


I'm just gonna google a little more and see if I can find an OE part ...

This one looks shady and has no picture and just says used OEM: http://72.32.45.135/design/1982/BMW/...ont/41280.html

I just noticed they want $320 for what appears to be one front coil spring and you want to pay $320 for one spring, I'll sell you all four off my car and get those aftermarket lowering springs for myself .... :o)

If you really want used OEM, I can take a better look at the strut springs in the '79 and the '80 and also need to verify that they are compatible in your '82 but I'm pretty sure they use the same springs. Those aftermarket lowering springs actually look kinda bad-ass though, I'm kind of thinking about getting them as I'm writing this. I hope this info was helpful and can google some more if you need it.

If anybody's used those springs by the way, please do tell about that.

Also, don't feel bad if you didn't find this stuff googling at first. I've been googling for research for my job for over 10 years so googling for BMW parts is actually relatively enjoyable for me. If I could only make a living doing it.
