Best e92 suspension set up for highway driving around NYC area?

I put about 30k miles a year on my car mostly highway driving. Some of the surfaces aren't great, potholes, high speed dips and drop offs, seams in the roads/bridges, etc...

Currently have a 2007 E92 Sport with 55k miles. I don't want to lower the car any more than it is stock because I really wouldn't be able to daily drive it. I'd like to tighten up the high speed ride though, I feel like with the added power of the cobb accessport, the car could use upgraded suspension. What would be the best recommendation? Keeping in mind drivability on all qualities of road surface.

Without lowering the car your best upgrade would be a set of Koni Yellow dampers.

So stock springs, just the new shocks? These would help with the kind-of bouncy/sloppy/unstable ride I'm experienced on sections of rough highway with dips and seams in the road?
