Lowering Perches for xi? KW V1

So what are options for lowering perches for those of us who are xdrive? Do the ones sold by SP fit? I have my V1s maxxed out in front but still would like to get an extra half inch or so if possible. Any info?

You can use those lowering perches on an Xi as long as you use the "I" top hats apparently. I have the V1's on my xi and I'm only half way down and the front tire is nearly tucked...

I don't have them since mine is low enough as is but I did contemplate it before I got coil overs and they confirmed it would fit with the i top hats
