The b14 is a completely different kit, I would assume it has similar performance, however the b14 has the integrated adjustment up front. The read I don't know.

Official received and installed b14 package

So I know everyone had been waiting on some one to do a write up about the b14 coils for an x drive. I finally recover and installed my and oh boy am I beyond impressed. My shock went wayside a while ago so I can't give a full comparison stock to new, because new stock would also feel great. This being said I compared it to a rwd 335 with stock suspension and the difference was very noticeable. I've already put it through the test on smooth roads from digs, gravel construction highway. And it's tight it feel a little more intense then an e46 M3 stock set up (I did upgrade to power flex black for the upper shock bushings in the back). One complaint I would not is that there is and even amount of adjustment in front and back, I wish the front had more adjustment to go lower. I was able to get my height where I wanted it, however it is on the lowest setting up front and the back about half way. Not much is noted on the kit for what is included. The rear set up replaces the top metal cup above the spring, however the rubber boot in the arm is reused, so I would replace. In the front the upper rubber boot is reused in the kit, the top nut is included in the kit also. But as in overall amazing kit and would recommend any day.
