I went to my local shop to buy H&Rs for my '85 735i, but the shop owner said that all he could find were for a 733i. Thinking that there couldn't be much difference, I ordered them anyway. I know that a few of you guys have H&Rs, could you tell me if I did the right thing?

And how much did you pay for them? The reason I ask, is because I need a set for my 733. <p>Thanks!

A knowledgeable shop owner should know that E23s were 735i from 1985-1987. I believe the suspension is the same for 733i and 735i for 1983 to 1987. You should be OK.<p>I would be interested in finding out what kind of struts you will be using and how happy you are with the results.
