If so what part #s do I need for the 'd? Any help is appreciated.
I feel EXACTLY the same way. Especially from the rear there is way to little rebound damping. I know BMW had to compensate for the RFTs, but for the life of me cannot why they used the shock valving that they did, considering I understand they test dozens if not hundreds of combinations.

My thinking is to wait till shock replacement time and probably go for a set of non-sport bilsteins.
