Best suspension for 2007 e90 335xi

I live in upstate NY and the winters here get pretty bad so I went for the 335xi over the 335i. I want to know what the best suspension options are for the best value that will get rid of that ugly gap, and still be adjustable to get ready for the winter time. Thanks!

Look at the Bilstein B6 or B8.

Hard to wrong with Bilstein.

As far as lowering it, there are few options to lower your car being that's AWD.

Bilstein would not be one of them.

B8 will give it an m-sport ride feel.

I'd go with the b8

Non m-sport would be like a B4

M-sport equivalent would be B8

They do make B4 sport too for those that desire a sportier ride but not to the level of a B6 or B8

I have the sports package since I have sports steering wheel and seats but apparently sports package is not the same as M-sport package - very confusing.

So I guess I have the equivalent of B4.

If you have the sports pkg, I'd go with a B4 sport, if you want an OEM feel; or B6 or B8 if you want a better shock & strut than you currently have.

For another $150 it would be worth going with the Sonic Tuning S3's or BCracing BR coilovers.

Don't waste your money.
Ohlins Road & Track if you can swing it.
If not... Then FSD's with Eibach Pro springs.
