Then get a Mason rear strut tower bar to stiffen up the rear so you can add better either coilovers or lower springs as the stock chassis may flex under hard corner loads. I plan get get the Mason myself because my after market springs probably pushes the stock chassis more than I would like.

After that it's all up to you.
Rear shock tower braces don't do much at all because of the rear suspension design. Definitely a wasteful upgrade for a lightly modded M3. Get your subframe reinforced way before getting a rear shock tower brace.
