Need some expert advise on my suspension ** Help**

I'm at 97k miles and although I have new tires and Avant Garde M359 wheels my car drives like a tank. I switch the wheels to move away from the stock Run Flats and this is my 2nd 335 so I'm aware they ride a little rough. My question is "have my shocks / springs reached their end of life?" My guess is yes but if so what is my best solution to achieve that new car ride feel again. I could give 3 shits about traction etc its my daily driver and don't plan on cornering in at 60mph into my jobs garage. All input is greatly appreciated :-)

Look depending on whether you wanna lower or not I would say kw v1 coilovers(best of both worlds lowering adjustability and good comfort not harsh at all) they ride amazingly if you don't wanna lower and could care less about handling maybe koni fsd with stock Springs(stock height with good comfort) or eibach prokit and koni yellows(this lowers)

Koni FSD's, please. Springs prob OK. FSD's designed for stock springs.
