Struts & Shocks for F30?

Anyone found front struts and/or rear shocks for the F30 yet. I checked Koni, KW, Bilstein, etc and no luck from anyone yet. I dont want to spend the money on coilovers. Just amazed its taking so long for some of these parts to come out.

Normally it would but I am guessing that suspension cost nearly as much as coilovers.

Yep, thats about the same as coilovers and more than I want to spend for every day use, which is why I was looking towards Bilstein or Koni

Struts are $1000 from M Performance.
Pretty much the only option right now.
Strut+spring are $1500, just search my posts and you'll find pictures of the drop. Pretty good for a DD option.
