Sport Rear: 22.32"
M3 Rear: 23.67"

H&R Sport M3 springs change:
M3 Front: -1.2"
M3 Rear: -.5"

M3 w/ H&R Net:
Front: 22.62"
Rear 23.17"

So, difference between your stock sport ride hight and an M3 with H&R Sport Springs (your drop):
Front: -1.09"
Rear: +0.30"

So, It may actually add .3" to your rear...

But, this is all presuming that everthing about the car EXCEPT the spings is the same... which I dont know. The suspention itself could be much different.

Hope this helps

EDIT: I'd actually be interested in the outcome of this considering I have a friend with a set of stock M3 springs that he has just laying around.

I just dont know how comparable the suspention setups are.

You may want to consider having this tread moved to the suspension and braking forum
