Need to lower my car. Coilovers? Springs? Recommendations?

So... I finally decided after much debating with you forum members to lower my car.

Here's my situation: I don't want to go TOO low. I want to reduce wheel gap, WITHOUT compromising handling.

The reason i've been so skeptical about lowering my car is because I have a mazda rx8 DD thats lowered on 19" rims and while it looks nice, I scrape everytime I go over bumps. I do not want this with my bmw.

Also, I want to be able to take a full car load of people without scraping over every bump, and turn.

I'm leaning more torwards springs as opposed to coilovers simply because they are cheaper and I don't feel I really need coilovers. (if you disagree convince me otherwise.)

I definitely want to lower the front more than the back. And I don't want to lower the back too much, as it sits low already.

Please post up pictures of your lowered 335i along with specs and advice. Thanks!
