Originally i was on Konis with HR springs. Good drop, but a little springy in my opinion. Just switched over to Eibachs. Not as low as HR but almost unnoticeable. But the ride is much better. Much more responsive. Not as floaty, but not harsh. I think its a good balance for daily street driving!

Ok thinking about pulling the trigger on the Konis/Eibach setup for my daily with 115k miles on the clock. What else is necessary to replace? Do I need 4 new bump stops? How about front strut mounts (no symptoms of failure) but should I at least get new bearings? I will do the rear strut mounts. If all I will be doing is daily driving and occasional spirited driving are the reinforcement plates really necessary?

I’m pretty sure if you skim through the pages there’s a list of items to replace

Koni Yellows + TMS H&R springs here. Decent setup for street use, not low enough for my aesthetic taste though. Also the problem with springs is the E46 M3 has this uneven balance from factory where the driver side is higher to "compensate for driver weight" not a fan looks stupid and the only way to remedy this is with coilovers.
