+1 lowering perches should do the trick. Coilovers will work as well

Here's my car, I know it's a e92 but just an idea of how Perches look and coils look.

SPP lowering perches:



Coils:



With my current setup, I can adjust the front lower and raise the backend as well. Which one is more "sporty" to you?

Eibach pro-kit or H&R springs.. Inexpensive and the drop in the front is more aggressive than the rear.. Check the sig.. I love my stance.. And absolutely agree with what you want to do

Your friend has an IS350 with a stance, and you want the stance. Ah boy, I hate comparing any IS to a 3, but the is350's stance is also enhanced because of the tapered shoulder, which makes it "appear" to kick up at the back as well. The e90's shoulder isn't as dramatic, but I think is better defined. You can go with a 335i M-sport. That will definitely work without any mods



*edit* By the way - this car ^ sucks.

Looks M3 but I know a lot of people with 335's are able to mod it to look like and M3 so I couldn't tell you.
When are you going to pull the trigger and grab one? You know you want to, it's calling your name. hahahaha

vitalkk, I am aiming for that look as well. Aside from just dropping the front, you also need to space out the wheels to achieve a better stance.

Most people would get coilovers and new wheels/tire to achieve that look, but that's upwards of $3000+... Since I am low on money, I just use spacers (15mm rear, 5mm front) + front spring perch. Total cost $250. Here is my car.

This is what's known as a proper M3. I do believe the one above is owned by the Mr. Long Tran of LTBMW.

M-Sport

Front rides a bit higher than the rear. The rear is a perfect height for my taste.
