help me set up for the nurburgring.

Car specs:

E90 with EDC
6 speed
ESS 575
HFC, Xpipe
Stock rotors, stoptech brakes.
Nitto Nt 01's 245/40/18 and 275/35/18

What can I do next to improve handling? Yes, coilovers sound nice, but too pricey. Car feels jerky when i'm in EDC sport, and feels a lot better in Normal, but A LOT of body roll! I talked to some drivers there and they say that too stiff is bad for this track, cause it's all bumpy. How can I reduce body roll without making it too stiff (too stiff is too bouncy/jerky)? I was really considering H&R race (my buddy has them and the car handles like a champ, so it seems), or dinan stage 1.. what would be better? I want to keep cars DD, as I use it to travel around europe.

my current best 8 flat BTG (today, first time with Nt01's)(i'm sure i can knock off a tad more). 8.10 with street tires.
