1991 525 Shocks

At the risk of bringing up a well discussed topic and being stoned to death, here goes
I've got a 1991 525i with a production month of 11/90, with that being said I intend on going with a fresh set of lowering springs and shocks to help the M parallels fill the wheel wells better aswell as freshen up the 20+ year old suspension components. With that being said, doing my research i've found the rather confusing shock differences that occurred on the cars around that time.
So far this has been an excellent reference:http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...ference-thread
With that being said, I would need the second setup for 525's from 08/90 to 09/92 right?
Well doing my shopping around i've found that many specifically state they do NOT fit the 525 with an M50? Im leaning twards the vogtland/KYB combos that can be had on eBay for a reasonable amount.
Is there anyone with a definite answer as to which shocks would fit my application?

Thanks in advance
