DO IT! I have a 96 Z3 and I put Bilsten sport lowering shocks and H&R lowering spring on her (approx $800 parts), she is like a new car. So low and sweet in the corners. You'll love it, parts are available on line for the M's I'm sure.

guys, theirs no need to lower an M3!!!! Seriously, they're on 17's with low profiles (standard) and are lowered 40mm from normal bmw's anyway. How much handling do you really need?
Apart from that, do you guys not have speed bumps in the US? they're 4-6 inches off the ground here...no jokes!

I think the front struts and rear shock were around $350, the H&R Springs are what lower the car. It took my Z3 down a good 2" front & rear. Struts, shocks & spring were right at $800 last summer. Took about 2.5 hours to install with a lift, air tools & power strut compressor.
Now you can go with high dollars stuff, coil overs, 3 stage adjustable everythings, camber kits, etc. but you very quickly get above $1500 to $200 or more.
