Seems the Bentlley book doesn't give spring rates, rather ride heights. There is no difference in ride height between the 2 dr or 4dr, but that still doesn't prove that the springs have the same set load and/or rate. I'm going to call a dealer and check out part numbers.
Weird thing about the Bentley book is the ride heights in the rear are given at Normal load (2 fr, 1 rr passenger + trunk cargo) for the standard and sport us, but gives unladen ride height for the M3. But, for front, it gives all ride heights at normal load. It bit inconsistant and confusing if you aren't reading the asterick comments in fine print!!!
thanks for the reply, e36_m3_turbo, I just need to see the proof!

They are the same. Only I think all "is" come with sports pkg suspension right? I have no idea, but since I sell Bilstein and H&R suspension parts, I know the part numbers are identical.
Just for the record, the 2dr is heavier than the 4 dr.
