What do you think of RD sport springs?

Hey guys. I recently got a 2012 m3 coupe zcp and I already ordered a bunch of mods. The only think that I'm worried about is the RD springs because I had h&r sport springs on my 2009 3 series and I didn't like them that much. The car looked awesome with the drop but the drive wasn't that smooth at times. Please let me know waht you guys think. Thank you

For a spring setup on the m3 I recommend eibach.

It's basically identical to stock with a feel of slightly less body roll and I noticed a bit heavier and tighter steering feel (before and after alignment eas done)

I was a skeptic of springs only, but now am a believer at least as far as the m3 is concerned.

Very happy with the B&G springs. Perfect drop and maintains a factory-like ride.

For those looking for springs - it's what we recommend each time.

I have had sone people tell me the ride gets a bit bouncy. I was considering springs too but kept the stock springs.

I have RD springs and honestly they feel like stock with less roll and a little stiffer in EDC sport mode (I have a 2012 M3 ZCP as well)

Nothing but good things to say about em until you get your first bumper scrape.

rd sport springs ride stiff, but nice. not bouncy at all as long as your running EDC on normal or sport. no rubbing with 15/12 spacers on OEM 18s.

i swapped them out for GC sleeves as the car would understeer like CRAZY. the suspension geometry is all f*ed up with the rd sports. gc sleeves with gc camber plates after race alignment + corner balance are fantastic. combine that road force balanced bbs FIs and i'm smiling ear to ear.

only thing is GC sleeves replace the OEM sway bar end links and the GCs seem to be noisy as hell at super low speed (parallel parking, for example).
