To equal or outperform the E9x M3 you have some work to do. Either start with all the M3 bits or a decent coil over system(linear rate springs with at least rebound damping adjustment) or do both. PM, email or call me if you want to discuss this further.

Nice car. I could be wrong, but i believe the US Msport is purely cosmetic so you are starting with essentially a standard sport suspension. It's nice but far from M.

Check out my post on what I upgraded after searching the heck out of this forum and chatting with several members. Not an M but pretty darn good and now I really need the upgrade.

http://www.bimmerpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=589722

Short answer, If money is no object you are going to wish you just bought an M. By the time you add an LSD and all the M parts and whatever else everyone says you HAVE to have (which varies wildly), you are still not a full M but have really narrowed the price gap, especially with quality installs. Still, with a tune, it'll beat an M in a straight line.

Good luck!
