Sending Unnecessary documents is not recommended. I got my initial TIER 1 within 3 weeks or so and extension application is submitted since 4 months( few extra unnecessary bank statements) :oops:

Agreed - I got my extension and ILR in about 8 weeks. Only used the minimum needed documents.

I would say keep it to the point without unnecessary documents.
And include a good covering letter.
