Hello, 2011 Xdrive Sedan(328) suspension question...

Awhile ago, I purchased a set of sport springs from a 328 non xdrive with similar front/rear rates and weights as my Xdrive
(manual transmission) So I'm aware that our springs are different dependant upon Xdrive or non, and weight for manual vs auto and 328 vs 335.

So, it's been a long while and I don't recall the details correctly;
Am I okay going with something like B4 Sports? Or should I look into a beefier shock/strut combo. I debated (at the time FSD) Koni Specials, but I'm not sure I like some reports of them not lasting near as long. So maybe a solid bet like Bilstein is better in the long run.

I'm really not looking for drastic changes, I wasn't looking to lower much drastically, but a slight lowering is fine. I'm not looking to autocross, just a daily driver who enjoys the twisties.

Were there any other changes, such as mounting I'd have to consider for the shocks?

Basically, I think I'm looking for this set of B4s

That are meant for vehicles with the sport suspension. (I think?)

Anything else I should be looking to replace? Front Strut Hats? Upper and Lower Shock Mounts I'm guessing?
