My Ride: 2001 330CI
ST V1 & Hotchkis sways VS UUC STAGE 4

I have researched out my

Read some excellent articles/guidelines from JPR and others.

My priorities are:
Handling
Lowered a bit
Comfort at least same as stock sport package on my 330CI/step

I plan on going back into autocrossing soon. (I know these items will put me in different class--wond D stock back then very few in class but still a win).

With that said, which set up offers what I am looking for that is better than the stock sports package, greatly reduce body roll and kinda puts me on "rails" between the 2 set ups i suggested?

ST V1 & Hotchkis sways VS UUC Stage 4

-Roughly $300 difference between the 2 set-ups
-Hotchkis seems the most popular and best for sways since they are larger offering bit more body roll ratio vs the smaller UUC sways
-ST V1 coilovers will give me the ability to adjust height
-ST V1 galvanized steel no problem concerning salt as I live in Florida
-UUC package deal saves dollars
-will I really need to adjust the height (on regular basis or autocrossing)

This will be with:
Meyle HD cab and retainers (I have 66mm set of Powerflex bushings already at home as back up--bought the wrong size but kept them)
Already have Meyle HD control arms
M3 RTAB (do I really need shims with these?)
RE RSM
(been reading about checking guibo, steering column mount, trans mount etc)

Again, i have read at least 50 threads(prob more) just want some feedback/direction.

Thanks.
