Op- as others said, save your money. That m3 brace won't do a thing for your handling. Dampers and springs will.

Only occasionally. Seemed light years better than stock w/Potenzas. OTOH, many things do.

Had pothole explosions with stock suspension & non-runflats, but noticeably less than w/RFT's.

Then installed yellows w/linear springs; haven't had a pothole explosion since. Firmer, but very good.

So, yeah, I recommend FSD's as a first mod, opposed to stock, especially with 'sport' suspension or, prob better, BMW Performance springs, thinking many drivers want to go with bang for buck. There are many higher performance setups.
