CKS is another brand you can look up, its pricier but at least ///m guys run them

There is no perfect $1000 solution. You are buying a compromise.
So look at e90 specific reviews or e82 ( same thing 90% of the time).
Some of them make adjusting the rear height or dampening.
Bonus points to any brand that has an ///M car running a set( BC racing are gaining popularity with e39. e60 and f10 are running CKS and BC)
You may as well get the version with a Camber plate
Look for ones that offer SWIFT spring as they can make up for shortcomings of the shock.
ST coils and Vogland are cheap German quality but sometimes lack dampening adjustment. Also have no camber plates.
