Strut and shock replacement on 2003 540 M-Sport.

I badly need to replace the shocks and struts on my project car and I'd like to keep it as stock as I can to keep it simple.
It has the 705 M-Sport suspension package.
FCPEuro shows Sachs 556-838 for the 2003 sport (704 suspension) for $172.
They show BMW 31312229612 for the 2003 M-tec II (705 suspension) for $506.
What's the difference besides price?
I know there are alternatives but I'm less certain about them. I know people have mixed results with aftermarket.
