    The way they bottom out so easily, I would say yes, but I don't know for sure. My 320CDI had self-levelling rear shocks, a rare option that I'm sure wasn't available on the saloon.

    They are different FYI

    Estate wishbone is different from saloon and coupe. Bush is much bigger on the estate.
