H&r race springs

I'm planning on picking up some h&r race springs and vorshlag/GC camber plates. A few members say that the race springs don't allow enough suspension travel and will ruin the handling. I have e36 bumpstop...any thoughts?
Thanks

While I can't comment on the outcome h&r springs will produce, fwiw I've heard swift spec-r to be one of, if not the best lowering spring option for e9X m3.

The Race do not drop the car more than Sport. They are the same length. The Race version is simply stiffer and will not ruin your ride due to a lack of suspension travel.

Follow the modifications in this post and you'll be set:

I have the H&R Sport Plus aka Race with the above suspension mods in my M3 and absolutely love it. Never bottoms out or crashes over bumps.

I agree with you 100%. Next to coils, it's the best option.
