Has anybody any experience fitting OEM M3 springs, shock absorbers and rubbers to a 325Ci ? If it is possible would there be any advantages or disadvantages?

Both E46 - do I need to say that?

Seems I have found the answer. I quote:-

"Rear M3 springs will fit any other E46.
Front springs will also fit like butter, BUT, M3 oem suspension sits higher then non-m and M3 also weights alot more then your 325i thus its springs will make your car look like a 4x4"

Thanks for that info Mr Blocked Out.

There is about 75Kg more weight in the M3. Maybe I'll need a heavier girlfriend if I do this.

Thanks for that info Paraklas. I was not aware how critically the suspension is matched to the car. Seems they change the springs depending on the sound system fitted amongst other things.
You are also right they were cheap so it was a cost saving idea too.
Cheers
