It looks like on Tein's website the springs have different part numbers but also different lowering heights.. I think I've read of people using M3 suspension on non-m's.

If anyone knows if this will work please chime in

They will fit but the spring rate is different. Therefore, it will not go as low.

I've been told 100% the rear is the same, just different rates. Don't know about the fronts. I'm pretty confident the front springs will fit tho.

Damn, I want about 1-1.5" drop. If they don't lower my car as much as they would an M3 then I guess I should just get the ones meant for my car. Thanks Pat & Snikwad

I have the tein s tech lowering springs for your car since I have the exact same car with under 1000 miles on them the only reason I am selling them is because the roads are really bad were I live or else I would keep them. pm me if you are interested.
