You got it spot on.  There are 3 Bilstein lines, 
"C" Comfort, "HD" Heavy Duty and "SP" Sport.

"C" are not available for the 100CSq which takes HD or SP _but_ Bilstein 
recommends a lowering kit in the rear w/the SP.  SPs' are (IMHO) a tough 
ride and overkill for street use.

The HDs should suit you fine or take a look at the new products from Sachs.
Alleged to be as good as Bilstein and less money.  We're testing a set next
week to find out if the claims Sachs are making are true.
