When will more aftermarket suspension be coming out for the F30?

I have my F30 on order and my plans are for H & R Sports Springs. I would like to upgrade the shocks and struts at the same time to something like a set of Bilsteins so the ride doesn't have any bounciness. I've heard people say this happens with stock shocks and aftermarket springs on the F30. I know this to be true in the Mustang world. Any idea on when KW, Bilstein, etc will be releasing shocks, struts, or coilovers for the F30 platform?

per KW customer service, they said the coilovers were 2 months out before release. That was a little over a month ago.

Thanks for the info. I'm really wondering when Bilstein will come out with something.

If you look at the bilstein catalog it appears that there are suspension options for the f30? and the part numbers are the same as f20?

Can anyone confirm?

Well, I contacted both Turner Motorsport and Tirerack, both Bilstein distributors, with a few of the part numbers I found on Bilstein's website. Turner said they don't know when those parts will be released and Tirerack advised those parts are only available in Europe right now and couldn't be ordered.

Cool, I'm actually looking to order straight from the EU as I'm not in USA.
