Where do I go from here?

Gentlemen, I recently put a set of ST V1 coils on my E90 335. I've really enjoyed the handling improvements. I am coming from an E46 M3, I am really liking the way this car handles but it's still lacking compared to my M3 IMO. It could be that I was just so very used to my old car, I had it for 9 years.

I've done a fair amount of searching and reading, but I wanted to get your opinions since there are so many different directions that people go with suspension set ups. Thanks!!

i dont have a lot of experience in the suspension area yet (still waiting for my coils to be installed next week), but i've read a lot of people upgrade to some of the e90 m3 suspension parts like the front strut, bushings, and sways... although i heard the rear sway bar is a pain to replace!

The best thing you can do is spend your money on the highest quality coil overs you can afford. ST and KW V series aren' known for performance, but rather a lowering coil overs with better damping than stock.

So you would recommend another set of coilovers? Any particular brand or type?
