just did mine last weekend.. (see signature). ... similar setup. I didn't bother spending the $$$ on Bilsteins since the M3 struts/shocks will do a more an adequate job (also gas pressured) for the eibach pro's... same ride comfort.

Anyway.. I also put heavy duty rear shock mounts. I also replaced my front ball joints while everything was already apart... other things you can do is add underbody sway bars.. (I think Autotechnica is selling an m3 rear sway)... etc...

By the way --- I asked the same question a couple weeks ago before I did my suspension swap... you might want to check out the replies in there as well:
