I run the regular H&R springs on my 08E90. I followed Malek's guide, swapping in E36M3 bump stops and cutting down the strut guide tubes and slipping a few inches of rubber tubing over the bottom coil of the rear springs. It is slightly lower and slightly stiffer than stock. Not at all objectionable, at least with 18 inch wheels, but you can feel it a little. I have a limited mod budget for this car at present, and did some power mods instead of spending more for coilovers. If I had more to spend, I would have bought coil overs, but I think the M3 handles pretty well even in stock form, so I was more interested in improving acceleration than handling.
