Exactly What I did. But Cup holder something good to have. I did find anything like this. Yes indeed it's a little too much, but it may be works for these money.

Mein Auto: 330i ZHP
The car sat at home while I was in Disney World for a week. But my credit card was busy. New front control arms, new rear shocks (OE, from Pelican), and Bilstein PSS10.

All will arrive this week. Control arms and rear shocks will be installed this coming weekend.

I know - why did I buy new OE rear shocks and PSS10's at the same time? Well, the PSS10's were bought now because of an offering on one of my credit cards that gives me no payments and no interest for 6 months if I use it now. It's free money and I'll see when I can get to the install. The box will tempt me from the shelf for a few months.

The rear shocks are totally shot on my car, I had them out to put on Rogue mounts and they compressed under maybe 5-7 lbs of pressure (squished may be a better term, rebound was somewhat better). Pelican had them for $87 each, and I've got a driving school on 10/26. So for $180 and 30 minutes of my time, I'll put them on. I don't expect to have time for the whole PSS10 install, plus balancing, plus alignment, before the 26th. Baby steps.....
