TEIN Questions ...

Im confused. I've decided on ordering Tein suspension for my 2000 323i, I'm debating between Tein SS and Tein Basics. I understand the 16way adj. difference, but whats confusing me, and possibly breaking the deal for the SS, is the questionable need for upper mounts front and rear. On Tein's website, when you look at the model specs here...
http://www.tein.com/products/super_street.html
and click on more info, they list two types of upper mounts that are included. But when you look at the specific model for the e46,
http://www.tein.com/tech_info/g72-e46.html
It says OEM for the upper mounts.

My problem is that I need upper mounts and would like to know if this comes with the adjustable mounts prior to ordering. Most pictures Ive seen show a gold colored uppermount on them, but i dont know if those are the pillowball mounts (even though that part is not listed for an e46), or is it is just some generic picture fo TEIN struts .

Anyone here have the basic Tein SS or Tein Basics?, (not the SSP) suspension and know first hand if they come with upper mounts like most Teins do?

Okay so Tein isnt open for another 4 hrs, so from what I can tell, these do not come with upper mounts and request that you use OEM ones. Now my question is what to get? I noticed with my Tein STECH springs that my camber is out a fair amount front and back. Pelican parts lists new stock OEM front and rear upper mounts for $63.00

Should I just gte these or is thier a cheap front and rear camber kits?
