I may be wrong but it seems like KW V1 coilovers may be the way to go for you if you're willing to shell out about $1200 for a new set.

giving this thread life again... so heres my situation.... i have my older 335i that has the m5 wheels on it and the front left is bent... these are OEM with new tires ran almost $4000 and I'm trying hard not to let them go... i know this place in queens... in track tires and they're awesome in price and quality.... i gave them a call and explained my situation so i was wondering would it be a bad idea to just straighten out the rim and patch up the tire or replace the tire and keep it moving like that or just buy an m5 rep set from eudm autosport for $750 and throw the tires on that instead.... then sell the 3 good original rims for cash.... what do u think?

Straightening OEM wheels is common, BMW dealers and plenty of independents do it. If the tire has a bubble replace it.

If you want to eliminate the reverse rake I'd suggest going with rwd and not xdrive springs. If you aren't on a budget then look for adjustable coilovers like KW v1.
