Simple question, upgrade front sway bar on otherwise stock suspension?

Ok, sorry guys if this has been covered. I tried searching, but it's like drinking from a fire hose.

Is there any benefit to upgrading the front sway bar on an otherwise stock 335is? I track my car some and will likely upgrade to coilovers in the future. Should I just wait and do it all at the same time or is there incremental benefit to upgrading sway bars now?

Thanks

I drove someone else's car with the M3 front sway bar and oe sport springs. It improves turn in and reduces front roll and camber changes (good) but I didn't like how the front end felt rigid over uneven surfaces. Everyone else will probably tell you to do it. Fairly cheap mod to find out
