I was thinking of going for an alternate brand to OEM as I have very little faith in BMW suspension componenets.
Don't want to go down the 'modification' route for insurance reasons.
But saw that Bilstein B4's are 'OE spec', but am now confused as there's clearly more than one type or 'OE spec'!!!!
I think the springs and shock valving between sports suspension and SS+ are the same. The only difference were the anti-roll bars. The JCW suspension had shock valving matched to the weight (options) of the car and different springs which also lowered the ride height a bit.
