My Ride: '06 330 CIC ZHP
I have the H&R Cup Kit with race springs. I was told that the front reinforcement plates are not necessary for street driving. But if they are that cheap and you are doing the change anyway, you might as well. I didn't. Separately, I have a strut brace on mine for added protection and looks.

As far as the control arms, I've heard good things about all those you mentioned, but Meyle seems to be a preferred upgrade brand on the zhp forum I'm on. I can't speak to bavlar's issue but that is a bummer. I replaced mine with OEM (ZHP), but I'm not sure what size.
