    Try Roadrunner motorsport.
    I got a set for my 330 touring years ago from them and they were very reasonable with a quick delivery.

    They might do a price match wink wink!!

    Well £125 + postage from the "roadrunner motorsport" ebay shop.

    Just need to call as they specify my postcode as being more postage

    Eibach don't specify these as fitting the M-Sport specifically but I presume as the ride height is not alterted much from the Sport springs it shouldn't be a problem.

    WIill I need to get a 4 wheel alignment done anyway to put it back to the BMW specified figures for the M-Sport. I know the M-Sport has different geometery to the standard E46. After a wee search on here, it seems the "Hunter" alignment system is the one to go for?

    Also, another thought, how are top mounts on E46's. Mine is a 2001 with 64k miles. Are they likely to be OK or should I change them if Im fitting all new springs?

    I know my brother fitted Eibach springs to his 2000 E46 328i last year & still hasn't bothered with alignment - it drives as perfectly as it did beforehand (just lower/harder)!
    I'd suggest marking the positions of the 3 nuts on the top of each strut, and making sure they get put back in the exact same position - that is the only slightly variable point in the re-installation process, as everything else goes back in exactly the same position.

    Also, the correct Eibachs for your car are the 2067-140 set; it doesn't matter whether yours is an SE or Sport.

    BTW yours won't be an M-Sport, they didn't re-christen the Sport an M-Sport until a few years after yours was made

    topmounts at the front aren't too brittle tbh...while the uprights are out you can replace for peace of mind...up to you.
    rear topmounts are a different kettle of fish...these can and do wear...cheap enough from c3bmw (meyle) or rogue engineering (more expensive) would rec. you change them and its one of the easiest jobs you can do on a bmw
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    As long as you don't have a touring... there's an hours worth of breaking plastic/hidden screws/trim-fitment-puzzle to get through before you get to see the top mounts.

    Then you have to put it all back again.

    That's what has put me off doing my rear shocks and top mounts. They are servicable now but in an ideal world could do with being changed.
