Best way to temporarily drop my leased 335xi

Hey guys i recently picked up a 335xi e92 and its leased. It sits so damn high, but not sure if im gunna keep it after the lease or not. Would springs be a could cost efficient option? I was thinking 335is springs, that way i could leave them on after it is returned to the dealer if I dont purchase the vehicle.

Get a set of coilovers and keep the stock springs. When the lease ends, if you decide to give the car back, swap back to stock and sell the xi coilovers- they'll move fast and you could probably get at least 75% cost out of them. Springs will not give you the height you want- the back will still be noticably lower than the front and you'll hate to drive it unless you replace the shocks, which puts you only a little bit below the cost of coilovers

+1!!! There is always a good market for used coilovers. KW V1s especially...
