(Alex, congrat on your "new" car.)

The 540 non-sport has too much body roll, especially after eliminating tire roll by fitting good, stiff tires. I have a Stage 1 Dinan (on medium) and am going with Schnitzer sways since they are for the FRONT and REAR (Dinan only changes the rear sway).

On a non-sport, I would also consider Schnitzer. The 540i non-sport has a smaller front sway than the 540i sport. Sways work as a unit so when you increase the size of one, IMHO consider increasing the size of the other. The downside - more labor and expense to install the front sway (And one certainly can't go wrong with Dinan!).
