Help deciding the best suspension for my needs/budget

Hi all!

Due to the battle royal I had with a curb last week, I'm buying a new suspension, among many other things.

What i want:
practical and sporty upgrade
adjustable
$1,200 shipped max price
coilover setup

What I don't want:
sloppy
excessively firm
poor quality

I've been considering the turner motorsport coilover setup. Does anybody have any experience with this? also does anybody have other reccomendations?

Notes:
Live in the snow belt but the car doesnt get driven in the snow.

Thanks in advance for your help, sharing your experiences and expertise!

The TMS set isn't adjustable, although it is a very good and balanced set up...

I have a kit right at the top of your budget but it seems to fit everything you want and comes with a front camber kit built in. $1199.95 delivered.

Made by ISC. Very well known in the Subaru world but fairly new to the BMW scene. Very nice product though.

I'll apologize in advance for the way my website doesn't allow me to post links to exact pages. If you enter your year/model on my website, search part # B003.

I think it's called the track street coil over set up. it said it had threaded shock bodies and was only height adjustable, which is all i want. They said it's the firmest Street setup they make (unsure if that's to firm or exactly what i want)
