2007 335i Sedan Suspension Upgrade Questions

I have been doing a lot of research on suspensions on the net. Narrowed it down to the following and need advice from people that have them installed on their car:

Usage:
The 335i sedan w/ MT car is multi-purpose daily driver on hilly San Francisco streets and fun canyon runs. I really like the twisties. I don't drag race or have any intention to. I had a 2004 330i ZHP which I loved in the twisties and just can't get over the floaty feeling of the stock sport suspension especially in spirited canyon runs with lots of transitions. I would still like a decent ride quality just to top off the want list.

Current Set-Up:
Stock Sport Suspension
Bridgestone RE-11 non RFT tires (super sticky)
Bone stock w/ 45K miles

Suspension modification thoughts:
1) BMW Performance Suspension (new version with yellow linear springs)
or
2) Bilstein PSS10 coil overs. Not sold on these as they drop the car really low.
or
3) BMW Performance linear yellow springs and Koni yellows sport adjustable shocks.

4) M3 front control arms, Rear control arms, Links, and maybe M3 bushings.

Figured I would do all the suspension work at the same time to save on installation costs.

Also if anyone has access to smoking deals on the items above or a good inexpensive shop to install in the San Francisco Bay Area let me know. Not in a rush just want to do it right the first time.

I am hesitant to do an LSD due to both expense and my predominately daily usage.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Ohlins

I love my M3 suspension (control arms, bushings, etc), Ohlins R&T, and Wavetrac LSD as a combo. I put on an e93 M3 front sway and a rear Dinan 15.8mm sway to match the Dinan setup. I love the balance and even on a daily driver into SF, I don't regret it at all. Too bad everything is such a slippery slope once you start!

atheis: how low is your car or are you somewhat close to stock sport height for city driving.

I have a DD 328i with sports susp. Did bilstein HD, hotchkis sways, m3 front control arms and m3 rear subframe bushings. Knocked out alignment pins for increase camber.

Used the stock sport springs.

Absolutely love the way my car drives.

0" front toe
-1.5 front camber

1/16" rear toe
-1.6 rear camber
