Need some suspension fact checking

I have a new 2014 CS/GT and suspension is next on my list after my Borla exhaust. I've been researching my butt off and it seems opinions are always divided on what exactly you need when lowering. It's my daily driver, I'd rather buy everything right and not have problems in the future or wish I had bought something and installed it all at once correctly. So, with that said, here's my current shopping cart with AM:
Eibach Sportline Springs
Koni adjustable shock/strut kit
BMR adjustable RCAs (poly)
BMR adjustable rear upper control arms (poly)
BMR adjustable panhard bar

Am I either missing anything or going overboard? I admit I'm REALLY new to car mods, I've always been moderately happy with my stock BMW set ups, however this car is an absolute beast and I LOVE all the upgrades available.
Thanks for the advice all.

If it were me, I would and have done the suspension first. It will be a lot easier to put in the exhaust and not as many problems making things fit.

What all are you putting on in the exhaust? Headers, X/Y Pipe/Axlebacks?

Your list looks good,
Only thing I would change/ add is.
go with non adjustable LCA'S.
( adjustable ones can lead to problems if not adjusted right )

Also relocation brackets for the LCA'S

get some CC plates or the gt500 mounts,

What are your goals with the car? Dragstrip or more handling?

Thanks for the tips.

Handling. I doubt I'll be doing any drag stripping, the option to do so would be great, but it's secondary to making this handle better on a day to day basis.

Your good then. Just swap out those adjustable LCA'S for the non adjustable, and add relocation brackets and your golden.
Only adjustable one you need is the UCA which you already listed.

Perfect, so the simple ol' $150 poly bushing BMR's are what you'd recommend there?

You might want to consider the Watts Link. I saw some tests using them and supposedly does wonders keeping the rear end planted even on rough pavement.

I'm planning on getting this but not quite yet. Gotta take care of other financial stuff first.
