Never cut a coil spring. It will not react the same afterwards. If you are on a budget look into B&G springs. They are a good European company and you could get a set of springs designed for your car that will lower the stance and improve handling. Don't get wunderlust over M3. The car is designed as a package and the pieces don't add up.

Yeah, I wasn't too wild about the idea, but I've just about been talked into it. Its $50 for the springs, and it might not end up too bad. I don't think it will end up worse than stock.
BTW Do you have any idea how much higher it will sit? I've thought about it and checked with a few physics people. And if coil springs follow Hooks law. Then the height difference will be exactly proportional to the weight difference. So if the M3 is 5% heavier then the front will sit 5% higher. Plus with cutting the spring it would only be 1/4-1/2 of a coil. And if I do this I'll also get the M3 sway bars so that should work together. And I know that they mount different.

If you need springs on a budget, look into FK springs. Good, reputioble company from my research, and also quite reasonably priced.
