    dumb question........but are they the same as the 3.0?
    or are we taking about different springs?

    I'm about 90% sure they differ from all other z3's (Probably because of the different engine/chassis weight) I would also suggest going with H&R since they are the best known spring out there for the M (ideally coupled with some Bilstein B6/B8's - depending if you want to run standard height or not).

    edit - that looks like an H&R part number anyway ?

    For the life of me I can't work out why but 3.0 and Z3M springs are different. It doesn't look like Eibach do springs for your car so I've given you duff gen previously, sorry buddy :(

    I just fitted some h&r rear coilovers from an 'M' on my 2.8 if that's any use I read somewhere all rear spring are similar fitment not sure how much weight difference there is between the two though can't be that much?
