Being that my car is almost 10 years old and probably has never had the suspension changed, I want something nice and smoothe.... what do people suggest? also keep in mind I like to get the IL6 moving at times and I am going to drop a m3 motor in in the spring

No spring is good without a good shock/strut... Bilstein all the way there...
H&R 97Alpine knows his stuff

Your goal was similar to mine. I tried the H&R / Bilstein Sport combo but it was too stiff for me, streetwise. Also, it prompted the glove compartment door open sometimes. Later I exchanged the Bilstens for the Koni's and the ride quality is better. Yet Bilstein was great for cornering.
Oh yes... I forgot to mention.. I'm a performance minded person.... I didnt think weather or not you were going for performance or just a good confortable ride... sorry... koni.. for confort... and bilstein for performance... my bad...
