Also, I'm close to pulling the trigger on either the Bilstein PSS9 or CKS. If I go with the PSS9, I'll add my findings to this post.
My V1s have the hex hole, I love the suspension but it makes a bit of noise and I am not the only one who has this problem.

Just chipping in to share my option.

I fitted Bilstein PSS10 B16 KOMFORT to my F30 (48-229012). These have a longer spring than the normal B16 PSS10. Lowering is in the -10-30mm range, not the -30-50mm range for the normal version. I didn't want to go that low.

I fitted them because I don't rate the standard M Sport suspension ( I've had both Adaptive and passive, both suck!!!). Verdict, wow what a transformation, the car now rides like an M3/M4, no jokes it really does stick to the road. It is also far less crashy when going over potholes, etc. An amazing transformation

mine is KW V2 installed on my 328i.

after a while i notice the bump stop was destroyed. had my car jacked one time at the local tyre shop for tyre swap and noticed the bump stop is like shredded foam and the dust cover wasnt in tact anymore.

also the rear perch or height adjuster need longer threads, at the highest ride the clearance between fender and wheel is only one finger gap.

hate to drive the in laws in my car cos fender scrub and malaysian roads has lots of potholes.

emailed KW and asked if they have a longer perch than the one that came in the box, apparently they do but they dont post it under spare parts in their website had to order them and they came with coil spring as a set.

in all, i guess KW makes good suspension but really should consider on the options of height, i didnt look at this as a problem in the beginning, but when you are running on 19's with 30 series tyres, hits you like a bitch!
