Thanks, that was her about 8 years ago, still running the same suspension that's holding up nicely.

Only one version of IE3's. I have no idea what the stock height of an e30 is, most of them have aftermarket springs or worn out original ones. Therefor I can't really related to these measurements. From my experience the Eibach "pro-kit" are too low and soft so they bottom out and the grey H&R "OE Sport" don't drop enough. That's why I went with the IE3's (they are also Eibach but a custom spec.) but you could also try the H&R sport or super sport.
The major difference between my 318is and an e30 M3 is that the noises come from the engine and not the passengers
