Hey, unfortunately there are not many options without compromising ride quality, your best bet would be coilovers, that being said and as you stated earlier that is not an option, i think your best bet would be some koni yellows and Eibach pro kit or the H&R sports. Both will lower your car, but the H&R is defiantly a lower drop. I also would not suggest running lowering springs on stock shocks as the ride is Alot more hash than stock.

Heres a thread with some pics of lowerd xi's http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=493976

and a semi local shop (turner motorsports) that carries H&R and could give you more advice if you call them
http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-32...5xi-sedan.aspx

hope this helped goodluck,
oh and if your looking for a good price with install if you buy the parts PM dave hes in the newenglad forums area he has done prob a few hundered installs here.

I have KW V1 coilovers and absolutely love them. I run an 18" wheel with a 40 series tire and do not have rubbing issues.

Also Koni Yellow (adjustable), primarily in conjunction with lowering springs, or KW Street Comfort coilovers. Also, I think Bilstein does have xDrive specific products as well.
