My Ride: 330xi E90
Strut for 2006 330Xi E90 - what number

All right, I am sorry in advance if this has been answered somewhere, but I can't find it.

I need stock replacement struts for my wife 2006 330xi E90.
Nothing fancy. Nothing lowered.

What I have learned so far is that the struts for the XI are different than the regular I (not sure what the difference is). I also learned that XIs don't have sport suspension, just sports package (our does have sport package).

The only replacement I have found online is the Bilstein for around $275 each.

http://www.amazon.com/Bilstein-Shock...words=VE3-E247

Does anyone know if either Koni, Sachs, KYB or Monroe has a strut model that fits and that would be a bit cheaper?

And if so, what is the exact model number?

thank you very much!

You can check a couple of online websites. http://www.oembimmerparts.com/category_s/1837.htm is one of them or www.rockauto.com Also check your local parts counter at your dealer for OEM parts.

Thanks Tommy - I somehow missed these 2 sites and they list the Koni.

For future reference, it's number 87411535LSPORT (left) and 87411535RSPORT (Right)

Time to order.
