coil spring question

I have an '07 non-sport package, panoramic sunroof, auto tranny.... and I need new rear coil springs. I was going to order:

LESJOFORS 42 084 50
(BMW 33 53 3 413 080)

Is this the correct part number? realoem.com doesn't break down the part number for my vehicle.

thanks

FYI, that part number is correct and the spring is easy to change once you have the rear up in the air and disconnect the shock.

Choosing rear coil springs

I purchased a 2005 X3 3.0. It has 2 issues, both seem common to this truck.

I am trying to tackle the easy one first: Replacement of the rear coil springs. I would like to buy a pair of springs that most closely duplicates the OEM ride without paying $175 a side for the part.

The price range seems to be any where from about $60 for the no name brand to $90 to $120 for the Suplex/Lesjofors. I read a lot about Chinese steel and German made . . .

I am wondering what he consensus is regarding these parts. Which parts are best to duplicate the OEM ride and easiest for the DIY guy?

On a related note what parts house is best for this BMW? For my domestic vehicles I have had great success with Parts Geek, they have the Lesjofors for 109.99 and the Suplex for 93.90 with free UPS ground.

Thanks in advance for your comments.
