Do you have other suspension mods.
What do you think what should I do first shocks/springs or bushings?
I have the following for my suspension setup:

Eibach Pro-Kit Springs and dampers/rear sway bar
UUC adjustable front sway bar with adjustable end links
Vorshlag front Camber/Caster plates
M3 Strut tower brace conversion
And now the M3 Subframe bushings.

Springs and dampers are the easiest (and I MEAN IT!!!) upgrade to do. With coilovers you have the ability to adjust the ride height on the car much better than having the setup I have. If you just want to have a decent drop and a bit better handling, I would just suggest springs (like Eibach, H&R, BMW Performance).

Now, if you plan to take the car to the track alot or occaisionaly, I would suggest that you really do your research well and select a suspension that will deliver what you want from it. In my decision on going with the Eibach, one big thing I did not want was the staggering low from that H&R springs give and aslo wanted a good balance between daily driving with the handling ability in the track. I felt that with the Eibach / Vorshlag setup I attained that and now with the bushings installed I am looking very forward to the track when the weather gets better.

Edit: Bilstein makes an excellent setup and If I wouldn't have gone with the Eibach, that would have been my choice. I ran Bilstein Sport Dampers on my old E30 and loved them.
