time to replace air shocks / struts
It seems that my 2011 alpina b7l is a bit soft and wallowing at @ 105k and think it might be time to replace the rear air shocks and front struts. Thinking of going with the Arnott for the rear and oem for the front. Will changing those out make that much of a difference - in sport + it firms up but still the squat and dive seem a bit much. Any suggestions appreciated

are there any better options than the stock air suspension setup? what have others done to firm up the ride and control squat and dive?

Are you running in sport mode?

Outside of going coilovers there isn't much as far as I know....

I think you will benefit from a fresh set of struts, usually fixes the sloppiness due to years of use.

also check all the bushings in the rear suspension and subframe; the shocks can be still in working order but all the slop can come from the bushings.
