I find that really hard to believe that your mech said that. It seems that he might not know that much about Konis because they have been used in Porsches, all different kinds of racing (F1,Indy,CCA, etc.), and I have them. My 95 M3 had cut springs (done by the previous owner) and Konis, and the Konis lasted through all the wear and tear of those springs. Now I have H&R springs with the Konis for over a year, and it is awesome with no problems. Konis are the only shocks that my mech from TC Kline Racing uses, because they have used them with success in races. Of course, your mech may have had a bad experience once, so that my be the reason for his opinion.

95 M3, H&R springs, Koni shocks, daily driver

Are both pretty much the same, Which goes best with stock springs on a m3 97 coupe? Anyone know the spring rates of the stock springs?
