Also, what exactly are you looking for in your suspension? I'm surprised that Konis and Eibachs don't fit the bill for you. I find them as close to the RWD suspension as it gets. Dinan is also supposed to be very very good because they are a factory recognized tuner.
I confirmed that eibach spring rates are harsher than a 330i ZHP's but softer than an M3's. not my cup of tea.

When I had my Dinan setup, my koni's wear harsher than their specs because I bought it from Koni outright to save money. Little did I know that Dinan had custom valving on their Koni's so my springs never oscillated correctly and did not feel right.

right now, I'm going for a stock setup for comfort reasons but have found some small components like strut hats and spring perches that will get the XI back to I level without affecting anything else.
