I found some spring & sleeve coilovers for my car so i need some adjustable shocks for them, but they say theyre only for 325i. Just wonderin if those will werk.

should be the same. THe only difference between the two cars is the motor

I might be wrong but I thought the eta had diffferent suspension setup to the others.

From what i remember, the ix and the ic definetly have different setups. i just dont want to get stuck with schocks that wont work. Has any one heard of Tokico Illumina adjustable shocks? how are they? Also, I'm lookin at the Ground Controll coilovers to go with the shocks. What do yall think?

A suspension that will work on an i will work on any other 6-cylinder E30.

I don't like the Illuminas. The best shock match for GC's are Koni SA's, hands down. www.tirerack.com and www.shox.com

No, the only difference is the swaybars on the 325is and 325i had 20mm sway bars as opposed to 18mm. The springs and shocks are the same.
