Perhaps the cheapest option would be to go the standard E46 M3 route with suspension or go for an aftermarket kit to suit the M3. Spax PSX is what we use on the rally car without any issues and is relatively cheap.

Thanks for the reply that must mean that e46 compacts are the same fitting as the e46 saloon if the m3 fits not a lot listed. For e46 compact its all e36 or saloons.

The E46 compacts have a lot more in common with the saloons or coupes than their older E36 cousins. I remember on the Neil Howard Memorial Rally at Oulton Park there was a black E46 compact running. Not sure if anyone on here knows them.
