Thumbs up WTB: E46 OEM rear springs

I've got a broken spring and I'd like to replace with a used set of OEM springs. Anyone? I'm in Canada but commute to Orange County, so I can do either place.

Re: Pic Request: 245 and 275 in the stock 18"

I run 245/45/18 front and 255/40/18 rear to reduce understeer. Stock 18s has no problem with 245s, doesn't even look abnormal at all.
