Help Needed - Model Years Question

Long story short...I order a suspension kit which came with eibach lowering springs.

According to Koni and Eiback the springs are for an 92 to 98 328i convertible (e36). The struts/dampeners are correct.

I have a 99 328i convertible which is also an e36 built in June 99.

Isn't the 98 328i and 99 328i the exact same car? The look identical.

Eibach customer rep didn't know and just going over what the computer was telling him

They're the same car. BMW typically releases the cabrio model a year following the release of new hardtop models, and the production typically runs a year beyond where the stop of the hardtop production ends. September of '99 is when the last of the E36 cabrios for the US market was built.
