There are M5 and M6 owners with EDC equipped cars who have not had issues with stiffer springs, and they've been running them for a few years now. It's certainly prudent to caution a potential customer that accelerated shock wear is a risk associated with stiffer springs, but to flatly tell him that his shocks will be blown out "in 9 months with normal driving" is stupid.
100% agree. It's definitely not something to panic about.

OP: Install the springs and go have some fun in your M3. It's the key basis behind the passion of modding our cars.
