FSD/Eihbach or BMW Performance suspension?

BMW Performance comes out at $695-- I was hoping this was going to be a whole setup with new sway bars. At that price it's got to be just springs/shocks. Koni/Eihbach also sounded really good for me without doing the sways. Which setup would be better???

I wouldnt be surprised if its just springs. When I priced E46 sport shocks at the dealer, they were $200 a piece!

And they probably won't lower the car much with the Sports Package.

Stressdoc-- that's totally what I'm hoping for-- figured maybe they just didn't want to "M" brand it in the US, but the $695 threw me off. If that's really for shocks, springs and sways, it would be an awesome deal, but something tells me it couldn't possibly be all that...

No way, eibach + Koni FSD is 800, plus HR sways are 400 more. Not to mention 600+ for install.
BMW parts for almost half that? No way

For coupes owners...the M sport suspension and the US stock sport suspension (standard on coupes) are the same ride height (if not the entirely the same? see link).

I repeat, for E92 (coupes).

They are the same ride height-- other than that they are entirely different struts, shocks and sway bars
