Suspension dilemma

Alright guys here is the deal I have a E90 335i with H&R sport springs and stock shocks in my taste the ride height is alittle low. Also the shock spring combo make for some less than confident driving on uneven roads. I am debating 3 things:

1. Get a set of Koni shocks to fix the confident ride problems, but not ride height issue
2. Get a set of Coilovers
3. If I get coilovers which ones to get I am between KW V1 or FK silverline adjustables.

Does anyone have any realworld feedback on the KW and FK kits in question.

Since getting shocks won't fix your height concerns, just count that one out. If you're watching costs, then have you considered just swapping the springs out for Eibach Prokit? It won't be as low, and will be a better match to your stock shocks than the H&R IMO.

if you got the cash. get coil overs. It allows you to be flexible in terms of your height. But if not, like perpetrator said just switch springs, cheapest solution

Didn't notice this thread earlier,

I have exactly the same issues, too bouncy and just a tad too low!

Think I'll go for eibach springs and dampers though
