Bavauto springs, bavtoys exhaust??

Well im constanly shopping around for parts for my '95 m3, and looking through many of the posts looking for info. Right now, my m3 is lowered on koni coilovers. at least the fronts are coilovers, the back is set up with the standard spring and shock. Anyway, the setup is a little bit too low for me (i have tried adjusting it) and its a little rough. Iv been looking at both the h&r sport and oe springs which seem to have good reviews, but does anyone have any experience with the bavarian autosport springs on the m3? or maybe on just a 3 series? iv been looking at exhausts to, has anyone heard anything about the exhaust from bavtoys.com? It's obviously a rip-off from rogue engineering but its cheap and sounds pretty good. Thanks

i guess no one has them. Maybe there is a good reason for that. it sounds a little hairy to me. I would ho with H&R, they aren't that much more expensive than Bavarian springs, right?

Hi! ss325! I just did the exhaust & springs recently, & I went with the H&R Sports & the Supersprint catback muffler which sounds great, not too loud, but a nice performance sound.......As for the ride & look of the H&R Sports I am 100% satisfied.............Here are before & after pics...... & Supersprint muffler sound test..........
johnny,
p.s. the H&R's go for $229.00 @ tirerack........ & the Supersprint is $859.00 @ Eurosport........https://www.eurosportdesign.com/c-201-m3.aspx
That's a little steep, but that is for the M3 & it's 100% stainless, my muffler was $571.00!

I was going to go with the Bavauto springs myself, but Nick318iS suggested the H&R Sports.........they are only about $30.00 more than the Bavarian Auto's.....
