on E90s, there is a difference, and the sports suspension is lower than the standard stock suspension. but all E92 (coupes) come with the sport suspension already

You're not going to get your answer. You're gonna have people saying sport is lower while everyone else saying it's the same. Just go with the Eibach Pro Kit and save yourself some money. They'll lower that car a bit, still ride smooth, and pair with the stock dampers pretty good. If you want to be safe, buy their dampers or the Koni FSDs.

Sport suspension is definitely lower than the "regular" OEM suspension...

not sure what else is different.

Wow, I'm not a vendor... or one of those guys that you give you this . I'll say $250 for the springs only. The FSD are around $620-700. There are many vendors that are willing to help you out on this forum and will probably come flocking soon. You can get a whole Eibach kit for around $650- 720 including dampers and springs. Just shop around until you find a price you like or go to the buy/sell/trade section and post what you want to buy. Good luck

Not sure... I wouldn't think so, it would defeat the purpose of the "sport package"... I could be wrong, I really don't know to much about the coupe's...

Nope, not yet. Getting the Eibach Pro-Kit though soon. The dampers are designed for the springs, so you can't lose there. Plus, it'll be cheaper than the Eibach springs and Koni FSD combo, so why not?

Based on experience from having the Eibach dampers with a GTI don't waste your time. I ended up keeping the springs but changed the dampers to Bilstein.

I am big fan of Bistein or Koni Yellow. They have much better control than the Eibach Dampers. I just installed in my E91 Xi a set of ZSP springs with Bilstein HDs and could not be happier. Much improved over stock. That said, if I was looking to lower my vehicle I would have got the Eibach Springs and Bilstein Sports.
