I think that the issue is how much the Eibachs tended to use the stock bump stop. I felt like at least twice a day I'd hit a medium sized bump and the car would just rebound out of control after it, giving it a fairly unsettled feeling.

Dinan is very careful with their suspension not to run out of travel and I much preferred the ride, although it was not low enough for me.

I'm the same way, i've done springs and shocks and every time I end up ripping them out for coilovers. (E36 M3, S2000 #3, E46 M3, M Z4, S2000 #4, 335i #1, S2000 #5, Evo, etc) the E90 M3 is the only car I've stayed with just springs (And they were the Dinan setup)

sounds like we're on the same page. i hate that feeling. ok sounds like i am not gonna touch it. lol

oh and i need to know if my driveways in my area are friendly too. not looking for them to scrape their own lip or whatnot just want to see how close it comes.

oh and i want to know how it feels with the edc.
Gotcha. I think you just have to get some Motons.

im lowered only on springs. HR Sport. My car has edc. I opted not to go with coilovers when I had the chance b/c I didn't want to lose that feature. I love being able to adjust the stiffness of the ride which is quite noticeable..especially on the freeway when cruising. I wish it sat a little lower though. I hear RD springs sit lower than HR

There is a weekly car show / get together in Concord over by the Fry's parking lot. Not many M3's show up and it's usually dominated by older american cars but it would be nice to meet up with a few M3 owners and head down there.
