Question HELP NEEDED! EU vs US Suspension?

I have a Eurospec 1998 318ti and I need to fix my suspension.

However, i do not know the difference between the european suspension and US suspension, if there is any? I want to make sure I order the correct parts.

Can I order either? Will it work?

I'm looking at the struts
-US Specific I think - Monroe 71516 and 71515
or
- EU Specific I think - Monroe E7032

Please, any help will be appreicated.

If it were mine I would put Sachs or Bilstein struts on the car. Monroe's are pretty soft by most accounts. Good luck with the project. John

I put your car into realoem.com to double check, and the BMW part numbers for the front struts are the same as a US spec car. Hope it helps!
