Lowering M3

If you go with just springs, which springs would you guys suggest using on the M3 for a rather low look .

Also - do the regular 3 series lowering springs work on the m3? or is it different?

H&R are nice, drop is about 3/4 inch... RD Sport are a little lower, with about a 1-inch drop.

I'll one up you. My friend was convinced by a shop to just do front springs on his E36 M3. Wow, that car felt like shit. I'm not sure if it's worse than doing all four, or better, but it was terrible.

You've obviously met him, then. He turned that M3 into a piece of shit. It was fun beating the hell out of his "tuned" car with my stock one. I did have a clutch stop mod, though, which is the best mod I've ever even heard of, dollar for dollar. It enabled lightning fast shifts, for about $20!

Go with H&R, so far nothing but good reviews and similar spring only replacements have worked great on older EDC equipped M5/6's...

I hear supposedly Bilstein is in development of a version of their Damptronic system for EDC M3's...but it's gonna be boo-coo $$$! Only EDC-bypass coilovers on the market right now is kW but Eibach's coming out w/one too.
