You should have bought a 335i or something and that would have done the job.
The 335i sport suspension is actually stiffer (and far less forgiving over potholes and road imperfections) than the M3.

As I stated a few posts back there is very good evidence that the 18s outperform the 19s.

If "Stiffer is Better" was the case race cars would have solid rubber tires and no suspension at all and have the wheels bolted directly to the chassis.
