i had a look through them and they all seem to refer to gen 3 m2 and i wasn't sure if they used the same suspension set up or not

yeah that is my version, i cant seem to find anywhere selling lowered springs for it, everywhere i have looked has only had springs for the 2007 onwards version, so i was wondering if anyone had any information on where in the UK or Europe that i can get a set

I just bought a set off the fk automotive website for my DE. There is a set for DY on there.
