Bilstein B14 (PSS) or maybe B12 pro kit

Searching the webs and boards these days seems to give almost worthless results... So I'm going to be "that" guy...

I replaced my stock struts and shocks with the sachs oem replacements a few years ago on my 335. They are shot already. With the 19" 313 rims and PA roads, the ride is horrible. I'm back and forth with the b14'pss or b12 pro kit. I do currently have M control arms front and rear.

It's only a couple hundred between kits so price isn't a deterrent.

Thoughts anyone, good or bad on either kit?

If you don't mind, I'm going to throw out another option that IMO is superior to Bilstein in both comfort and performance. Ground Control coils are customizable for any spring rate and length you'd like, the staff is very helpful and can recommend a specific rate and build you a kit based on your usage and preferences. Additionally, they use Koni shocks which have a smoother ride than Bilstein because they don't have a high pressure gas charge, they dampen using internal oil and valves.
