Is the Koni FSD/Eibach Pro-Kit the near no-brainer for just regular driving?

Car's at 45k miles now and I'm going to replace my shocks and springs most likely in a year when I hit 60k. Looking around the forum, it seems the Koni FSDs and Eibach Pro-Kit seem to be the no-brainer combo. Just wondering if I wanted near stock comfort, is this the combo that I should go with?

Read a little about Koni Yellows, are the Koni Sports the same thing? How easy/difficult is it to adjust the settings? It seems the FSDs are priced higher than the Yellows, why is this?

Sports and Yellows are the same thing. MSRP is the same for Sports and FSD, but one or the other is usually discounted wherever you look.

FWIW I do think the Eibach-FSD kit is the right one for best comfort. Or just FSDs with stock springs.

FSDs are ideal if you are after a more comfortable ride. If you need the adjustment or a stiffer setup, then do the Sports.

The KONI FSD paired with the Eibach Pro Spring combo is going to provide you with the most comfortable ride. This setup has been extremely popular for that exact reason. If you're looking for damping adjustment and want to control the stiffness then the KONI Sports will be the setup for you. I'll shoot you over a PM with more details!

So even full soft with the yellows don't give you a descent ride, better than stock? Because that is what I have ordered. Koni yellows in my experience with good springs, coilover kit, give a nice ride when set to full soft, even 1/2 clicks off full soft was better than stock with other cars. Obviously I have no first hand knowledge with the 335i.

Thoughts if anybody has them!
