Yes they bolt right up but... You will have to either fabricate a spring perch or tabs for coilovers. I am running coilovers so I simply welded tabs and they work great.

and here is a pic from my car. If you intend to use the original spring solution, there is some work do do. Some info in my homepage.

ie do they position the wheels in exactly the same spot as the 02

trailing arms?

if you know what I mean.

What I'm interested in knowing is will the e21 trailing arm on an 02

subframe make the track wider or was the extra e21 width in the

subframe between the trailing arm mounts?

They'll fit in an 02 subframe fine. Its about 5mm or so wider on the ends I believe (on each side)

Still have my 323i arms sitting on a shelf..waiting...waiting...
