ACS springs for sale

I have now traded in my F30 335d xdrive and Coopers of Reading removed the ACS springs as they wanted the car to be original.
So the springs are now for sale - p/n 3130231320 which I believe is suitable for 330d or 335d xdrive models. They have only been used for a couple of months, 2000 miles.
On eBay now for 175, or make me an offer!

Did the dealer charge you for putting the OEM springs back on?

They are for saloon only, touring ones part number is: 3130231320

OP has incorrectly listed the part number, as the correct number for the F30 springs is 3130230320

Up to summer 2015 the saloon 330dx/335dx was 3130230320 and the touring was 3130231320.

ACS revised the part number and 3130231320 is now suitable for both saloon and touring 330dx/335dx.

3130230320 is currently for the 430dx/435dx, but obviously there is no harm in using it in the 3 series either.

Part breakdown:

3130 = spring kit

2XX=FXX

last 3 digits indicate variant.

I see, so your website needs updating!

The RS Kit does have different rear springs for saloon and touring though doesn't it?

Yes.
, although the 330d saloon is still showing 0310

So, if I may pick your brains a bit more, why doesn't the sport springs require different rear springs? Were they different before the part number change?

The 330d (s-drive) F30 spring kit is still 3130230310 and the touring is still 3130231310, no change there.

Not sure I understand the second part of your question, by "sport springs" do you mean the springs that come with the sport suspension (non adjustable) spring and damper kit?

I see, it's just the xdrives that have changed!

I'm just wondering why the part numbers of the spring kits changed, and if there was any actual change to the springs themselves?

Yes, Schnitzer are now recommending the touring rear springs for the saloon (on 330dx/335dx only).

So F30 330dx/335dx can have kit 3130230320 or 3130231320.

F31 330dx/335dx must have 3130231320.

You can't fit the s-drive kit on the x-drive car.

So what's different about the touring rear springs, different ride height or spring rate?

Slightly higher ride height and spring rate. Possibly (I'm speculating here) in response to some comments that the rear looked too low, but we're only talking about a few mm.
