KW V1 Coilover install - what else should I replace

Getting KW V1s for 07 335xi. There's only 60k miles on the car, but I'm sure some other components could use replacing while I'm in there as well as maybe some parts I should replace/upgrade instead of reusing. I'm not going super low and won't be tracking the car so I doubt camber plates is necessary but looking for some advice as to what else would be good to upgrade. Also noticed how low KW v1s look on the XI in the rear even on the highest setting, maybe a taller bump stop? Any suggestions or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

In the rear you can leave the stock cup on the spring and lower the coil over all the way, it will give you about a finger gap, but honestly just do no gap and you will be fine at 60k i dont think you will need to replace anything, i did mine at 57k and i had nor i have any issues.

Ya I would like to get to no gap or just above, I just don't want it to be tucked and I want to be able to raise it as much as I can for winter being in snow ****.
