Have H&R sport springs. Which shocks should i go with? 335xi

Just got a brand new set of H&R sport springs. I'm tempted to throw them on my stock suspension like others have but know in the back of my head I should pair them with some bilstein or koni.

If I play it smart which shocks should I go with?

I also just saw the eibach spring and shock setup which appears to be a new option for the xi.

Any suggestions? I want it lowered but not 'slammed'. Would like a nice compromise.

He H&R'S were an impulse buy so I'm not married to them....can always sell them. I know the consensus is KW's. Trying to control my cost as I've been going nuts lately on this car.
Oh....I'm on 17" stock and rims with brand new BFG G-Force Comp 2 tires. Love them so far.
I like the stock/OEM look.

I have bilstein b8's with eibch springs. Huge difference! Incredibly flat and stable very high speeds. A little stiffer but not too harsh.

Do you have to pair springs with aftermarket shocks on an xdrive model? Or will the stock shocks hold up?
