Suspension set up

I want to lower my EDC equipped M3 with springs, but at the same time I don't want the handling to get worse. I was wondering if springs with e36 bumpstops would damage the suspension. I also heard about the suspension bottoming out or riding on bumpstops when lowered with springs. Do set ups such as the KW sleeve over kit have this same issue? What about the ground control sleeve over kit?

If time is not an issue, be on the lookout for a TC Kline Racing sleeve over coil over setup for the E9x M3 and E82 1M. By what I have seen so far, it's going to be a very high quality kit from a highly recognized and podium winning BMW suspension tuner.
