Mein Auto: '06 330xi
Differences in e90 build date before 3/06 and after 4/06 front struts?

I had the incorrect build date when purchasing front struts for my '06 330xi, purchasing Meyle front struts for a car with a build date after 4/06 instead of before 3/06.

Whats the major difference? Will the Meyle struts I have not fit correctly? Researching other front struts for my car, it seems only the Meyle are build date specific.


Thanks for any help in advance.

Do you have a picture of your struts by any chance?

I still have my OEM suspension and my build date is 05/06.

I can take a picture and post it up. Maybe you might be able to spot some differences. But like I said earlier, I think it's the same.

Struts are located at my parent's house in NJ though. So it will take a couple weeks to post that picture up
