The Konis are adjustable so you can make them as comfortable as stock if you want. The B8s are not adjustable.

Old thread, I know, but I just wanted to update it to say that I ended up going with regular old B4 dampers on OEM sport springs.

I dont have them on the car yet, but once I see how it handles on the OEM springs, I may actually swap the springs with the BMW performance suspension yellow springs if I feel that it needs to be a little stiffer.

I heavily expect to find just the feeling of new dampers to be good enough though, mine are definitely totally shot after nearly 100k miles.

Lol well then plan to replace your brand new b4 with b8 if you swap springs..

Nah, if its undersprung, then its undersprung and I will go stiffer with the BMWPS.

If its not undersprung then I will have no reason to change springs. I've just heard that the B4 is slightly stiffer than stock.

It's 10% stiffer, supposedly. But they're still made to match the original springs. If you want to go with stiffer springs, even the sport springs require a different B4 damper. I suspect that would be due to a combination of increased stiffness and slightly lower ride height vs. base stock springs.
