I went for the ST (KW) XTA coils. Along with the front M3 upper and lower wishbones, rear subframe inserts, E81 underbody brace, the car handles really well. You won't find better coils than the XTA for the money

Pro Kit handles the best as it doesn't screw up the roll centre.

Or Sportline if you just want it looking slammed.

Do you recommend both B12-Pro Kit as well as the TRW 1M/M3 front control arms (upper and lower) to be done at the same time?

I am letting a shop do the installation since the DIY garage i go to is off on vacation and that shop is a KW specialist, so they can do proper alignment (camber and toe) right after installation.

Yup, cheaper than paying for two alignments.

Will go for that then.

KW shop wanted to sell me a €2,400 V3 set.

Will find someone else willing to install the B12-Kit for me, i have no need for coilovers.
