These are the rear shocks I've used; BMW Mtec spec Sachs: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sachs-Rear-Shock-Absorber-Suspension-Damper-311952-5-YEAR-WARRANTY/173328525001?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


These are the fronts, again, BMW Mtec spec Sachs: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sachs-Front-Shock-Absorber-Suspension-Damper-556834-5-YEAR-WARRANTY/173328527394?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

As for springs; if you want the OEM Mtec springs, go for them via BMW Cotswolds, you can only source them via BMW or 2nd hand (I'd personally go brand new); or look at the Eibach Pro-kit springs, they'll give you a slight drop over OEM Sport ride height (I've got these in my garage and still undecided whether to put them onto my car, I probably will at some point) ;)
