shock mounts

My friend who is installing some koni yellows for me told me that i might want to change my mounts since i'm doing the shocks and struts anyways. He's on vacation so I cant ask him and I dont know exactly what to buy, but i found this on the Turner site for $265:

Included in the E9X Mount Kit:
front upper strut mounts (also known as a guide support), 31306775098 (higher quality than 31336760943 strut mount)
A. rear upper-top shock mounts, 33506771737
B. rear upper-middle shock mounts, 33506767010
C. rear upper-bottom shock mounts, 33506771738
D. rear upper supporting cup, 33526764418 (sits over bumpstop)
rear lower shock mount (installs on spring arm), 33526768544

Is this all I'll need and is it a good price? things are adding up and I was thinking of coilovers, but i figure i'd need to buy this anyway, right?

thanks in advance.

You can compare Turner's price v. online BMW dealors.
Whether or not you should replace those parts depends on how many km's your car has, your BC roads and how long you intend to keep the car.
I replaced all but the lower, rear shock mounts when I replaced my springs and shocks. I wish I would have replaced those but I forgot about them.
