I couldn't get the BMW Performance suspension at less than 900EUR ex. VAT, while I could get the Bilstien B12 Pro-Kit at 550EUR ex. VAT. But the BMW Performance does include one upgraded anti-roll bar (not both, depends on car model and options).

BMW Performance has stiffer springs and the shocks are twin-tube, while Bilstein B12 has M-Sport-like spring rates and monotube shocks. I would choose monotube.

Here is my Bilstein B12 Pro-Kit review:
