H&R Springs - Ground to Fender Height

To those of you running H&R Sport and H&R Race... could you measure your front and rear GROUND to FENDER edge heights? (preferably e92)

I want to give my car a stance in between the two... for those of you who are going to say do it by eye... my eye is telling me to go way too low so I need to make some adjustments. I know my buddy with H&R Sport has no issues with scraping but my buddy with race often scrapes his front lip... so I would like to go somewhere in between.

Currently this is how my car sits:
Rear - 24 inches
Front - 24.2 inches


My front is a bit higher than my rear so I was thinking of going about either 0.3-0.4 inches lower up front or maybe higher in the back to give the car a nice rake.

in between would be perfect. Been a while on my springs and the rear looks perfect right now. The front could go lower a little. I think with a passenger in the car the front drops to a good height tho.
I could do it by the eye. Go until fender line just covers the tire edge.

I know you're asking for E92 measurements, but here are my E90 height numbers for your reference and for those E90's out there reading this post.

Front: 25"
Rear: 24.75"

I'm on H&R Sport springs on OEM sport shocks. Wheels are 19" (235/35R19, 275/30/19).

I too would like to drop the front a bit more in the front...ideally .75 to 1"

That's pretty low. I wouldn't be able to leave the work garage at that height.
