M sport suspension upgrade for E92 SE

I know this maybe be a silly question but it's one i cannot find a definative answer to.

And i also realise i maybe the only person who likes the m sport suspension setup.

But i have a 2007 E92 SE 320d on 17 inch wheels, recently i have been driving my wife 118d m sport and a 335d m sport and it just completely sucks getting into my car afterward trying to hook a corner.

So i called Sytner Chigwell and asked what suspension upgrades are available - specfically asking about alpina and m sport and was told that only BMW Performance was available for my car at 770 for parts only. They also said they can get the alpina parts but there is no kit as such (erm ok?)

So my question is can i get a m sport suspension retrofit kit (damper, spring, sway bar etc) and how much? or how much is the alpina kit? and is it worth getting with 17 inch wheels?

Plus has anyone else notice the gap between the arch on the front wheels with SE cars - WOW!!

You will be happy with the BMW performance suspension kit. Road handling will be vastly improved.

If you have RFTs the ride will be harsh on bumpy roads. Highly recommend using non-rft tires with this kit. It will be a huge improvement. Don't skimp on tires with PS, get good quality light wide wheels and rubber.

Cheers!
