Coil spring question

I am trying to find coil springs for my car and wondering if springs on the European market cars will fit on my car. I looked up part numbers and the American BMW spring fits on the European model but, doesn't show the other way around for any other springs. Only reason I ask is because I found boge springs that fit on the European version of my car for a decent price. I don't want lowering springs or to drop $500-600 for OE parts.

The springs on the car are pretty rusted and one side leans. Springs have no paint and when you grab them rust flakes come off.


EDIT: Got shipping quote back for parts. Cost $800 to ship as they come from the UK. So never mind.

Any reason you don't want to go with used OEM springs? They're practically worthless for the folks that are replacing them. If you get some from an area where cars don't rust they should be in OK shape.

I don't have a problem with good used springs. I checked around and the yards I could find, *************, wanted as much as brand new. I think I will just go with the H&R kit from ecs and bite the bullet.
