Also you can look into larger diameter sway bars to help with cornering. Finally not sure what tires you have but going from the stock wheels with 205s to just some 17s with 225s or even 245s helps significantly especially if they are performance tires. I keep my factory wheels for winters only.
Appreciate the input. If it becomes difficult to get BMW shocks to match with the Performance springs given I am going peice meal on this, I too am thinking some Koni's with the appropriate OE bumpstops could be a good way to go. I already have the 18's from the M Sport package on the car so no tire upgrade other than going to Michelins when the Bridgestones wear out.

If you really want PS springs, I'd go with comparable (motor/trans) E90 PS springs up front and comparable E93 PS springs in the rear. Don't forget matching bumpstops.
Thanks! I am hoping I can pull this off.
