E46 Eibach Sportline Bump Stop Modification?

Guys/gals, i need your help! I just bought brand new Eibach Sportline springs for my 02 325cI, and it comes w/ brand new bump stop as well. Do I need to cut them?

I installed H&R Sport Springs 2 days ago, and the instruction recommends cutting it .75" out, which I did. These springs were supposed to give me .75"F, .25"R, but that didn't happen, so I bought the Sportlines Instead. They supposed to give me 1.7"F and 1.5"R.

I currently have brand new Bilstein Sport on the car as well. These are known to give .25"-.5" lift due to their high compression gas. W/ the HR Sport, I receive no drop at all cause of this problem. I figure I'll offset it and probably get 1.2"F and 1"R from the Sportlines.

Please advice. Much appreciated!!!

The Bilstien sports are .25" higher because the spring pearch is .25" higher up the strut for less clearance problems. You can switch in those 10mm deeper spring hats for almost .5" additional drop.
