dude H&R is the best choice especially if you can get the stage 4 coilover kit, i had the eibach spring and combination with the sprint suspension is not getting a good result and bad drop measure

There is no CUP KIT for the M3...

I would say get KF coilovers or Bilstein PSS9 coilovers...

or Bilstein sport shocks and H&R sport springs if you don't want coilovers
