Again, would love to see side-by-side comparisons.
I would too. The PN for the rear lower spring pad is 33532283888, and it's the same PN for all M3 models (E90, E92, and E93) regardless of EDC or ZCP.

Sorry guys. Been busy with client cars and so on. But yes I am looking into the spring pad discrepancy. But I will be sure to report my findings! Have a good weekend for now.

OP: was there a reason why you chose H&R's as the springs to use in your custom project?

and what are your tire sizes in that first picture you posted? can you include the sidewalls since i noticed in your other posts you didn't reference them when talking tires...thanks!

Rather than 245/35/19 & 265/35/19

You are using: 265/??/19 & 285/??/19 ??

Thats what makes this setup more ideal?
How much trimming for the supports?
Any pics before/after for thr supports?

Hey Malek, is there any difference in ride height between OEM ZCP and the Dinan Stage 1 setup? Is the difference mainly the trimmed guide supports? Thanks!
