BMW 335i Suspension Upgrades

Hi. I have a 2007 BMW 335i sedan (6-speed manual, sports). With over 80k miles, the car is starting to feel sluggish on the road. It's time for a suspension upgrade. Unfortunately, the last time I upgraded my suspension ('02 530i), the morons ended up raising my car instead of lowering it. Needless to say, I know nothing about suspension. Any recommendations on suspension upgrades for the 335i? Important to me are: slight lowering, improved handling/cornering, slight decrease in comfort. Price range: $1200.

Thanks much.

Just replace all the suspension bushes with Poly ones !
If you fancy lowering her too, then 20mm would be a great compromise - but do the bushes !!


Eso es todo!

If it were me, I'd change out the shocks and go with lowering springs, something like the H&R's, just not the race setup
