My guess is about 7/8 in. The ride a bit stiffer. You do feel everything a bit more ... bumps, railroad crossings, highway imperfections ... but nothing too bad. It's not really harsher, but probably more due the M3 sub frame isolating most of the NVH. Also subjectively throttle response better since there is not as much rear squat as before. I got a before and after pic to show the drop:
