ook i found them now. but as i said 230 euro is a bit too much for me to spend right now :(

i'm not saying they are expensive cause they are not, its a good price for H&Rs. but right now i have too many expenses... maybe i will get them after a few weeks, or months.. [:)]

i also emailed them before and they said that total would be 299euro. i dont get it, how come on ebay from the same persons it is cheaper? maybe the price will go up once ppl start bidding.

W115 and W126 springs fit for sure, it's tested.
W108, W116 maybe?

W124 are different -> dont fit. Sorry.


btw, I'm going to have W126 strenghtened rear springs to my 123. Hard enough, i assume.. [:eek:)]

OK, let me see if I have this right...."W115 and W126 springs fit for sure, it's tested. W108, W116 maybe? W124 are different -> dont fit. Sorry."

Therefore if W114 and W115 are the same except stiffness then W126 or W123 sport springs will work in my W114?

Truly Confused

...are you saying the spring has a greater chance of "popping out" because it has been cut?
W123 springs wouldn't have a chance in hell of popping out when cut (and even when lifted up, they won't fall), its very hard to take them out stock height as they are so long you need to compress them heaps to get them out, my front springs are chopped 2 coils each, and they were still hard to get back in and still under a lot of tension. Don't see any problem with it at all, and haven't had any dramas with them at all.
