I guess it's because the 335i has a "heavier" engine bay? Plus a difference in weight distribution...

I said this in some other threads. There are two different spring rates for the different weights, but H&R USA only list one for some reason.

4-cyl should use: 28878-1
6-cyl should use: 28878-2

Look what I noticed today and I dont see any chips. I am thinking this should be covered under warranty! What do you think?

Looks like a big piece is missing though?

I have have replaced 3-4 fog lights and even though I couldn't see any chips BMW always refused to cover it under warranty. One even broke 2 days after I repaired the last one. BMW offered a discount and installed it for free though.

Ah, the pictured fooled me.

When I asked them two people went out with a loupe and checked and said they found a chip. But I would try for sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if they turned it down.

Too bad, worth a try though. That is one reason why I "hate" fog lights. They are mounted so low so it is certain that you have to change at least 2-3 on every car. And they ain't cheap either.
