    it'll possibly be the rear axle weights that differ... if they are in the same range, then physically it will fit..if it's underweight then the rear will ride on bound coils and crash and thump..

    ....or give LMF, one of our AT's a bell as they also sell the Irmscher kit.

    I'm sure, as Mark said, it's all to do with the different rear axle weight of the estate, and Signum for that matter, to the hatch. Needs slightly different springs/dampers to give the best performance. Could be a slight difference in the length of them, the damping rate or the spring stiffness - or all three! lol

    There's obviously a difference in the kit, given it's a different part number - so I wouldn't fit the hatch kit to an estate.
