Need help with E90 XI suspension question/advice

Sorry for the newbie question... recently bought a E90 XI for the wife... it is time to replace the shock/strut so I figure go all out. She is not going fast and furious but at times is a spirited commuter.

Normally I would go decent sub $1000 coilover primarily for adjustment... for this car 70% looks and 30% performance being it spend most of its life in commute.

Since I cannot seem to find any decent sub $1000 coilover for XI and even spring/strut combo will be close to $1000, I need your expertise.

1. is there any decent sub $1000 coilover that I overlooked?

2. as for Eibach "I" springs for "XI", does it matter if E91, E92, E93? Will they all fit on E90?

3. is there a difference with I and XI swaybar? H&R said they do not make E90 XI swaybar but I have seen advertisement claiming I will fit XI correctly.

4. If the coilover and spring/strut combo is the same price, what are pro/con for DD at same height? Does one dampener last longer due to design? Especially if both has lifetime warranty?

Any help is much appreciated... thank you in advance
