H&R Springs for x-drive vs non x-drive

Hi guys!

Question on HR springs (or other springs in general): Does it matter if the car is x-drive or not? Will the part number and spring setup be the same?

Also, if I have the M-sport package, is the car already lowered?

Was looking at H&R springs, doing some research and this part number 50471 is for the x-drive, whereas H&R 28947-1 is for regular ... so kinda got confused.

Advice is greatly appreciated!

Cheers,
--Andy

IIRC H&R also offers 2 different model of springs, a Sport Version and an OEM version. I believe the drop is 1.0" for the OEM and 1.4" for the Sport. Seldom do members post which they've installed, adding to the confusion, at least for me.

So - bringing this up again ... are the springs for 535 x-drive different from regular 535? Is it just weight related or something else?
Any insights will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
