H&R race springs E92 328xi....

So I'm looking to lower my car, but I don't want the rake look. We all know that the xi sits high up front, so I was hoping that the race springs would work out because they have 2" drop up front however I don't see them available for the xi? Anyone done this? What shocks did you combo it with?

H&R do not make their race springs for xi -- but I think a bunch of people have done it regardless. Should be some pics if you search. The drop is super aggressive. I would probably pair with Bilsteins if you want to do shocks as well.

I'm going to do the H&R sport springs on my XI. I will send pics. 1.3" front 1.2" back. 2" might be a lot without changing the shocks.

Here is a photoshop modified 1.5" drop. The photoshop work is pretty bad, but it looks cool.

2" is very aggressive, but I don't see that as enough on the pics you posted. Maybe I'm better off not going so aggressive in these Jersey roads.

I didn't do anything. Just kept stock setup. Maybe I'll do coilovers in the future.

I have H&R sport. The car looks really nice but the ride is to stiff as shocks for XI are to long and then they work at the end of their moving range and every bump you will fill in your guts...I am about to order either coil-overs or koni sport.
