Cool "Sport Look"

Hey Guys - First post here, and not the best English speaker so please be gentle
I have read around this site for about 2 months time now, and recently got my first E92 325 I 2006 Bimmer. But i have few issues that i would like some more experinced eyes on..
I have the sport suspension ( does not know how much it lowers ) but guess itīs something like the M OEM stuff.. But i would like it to look more agressive and by agressive i mean that is is lower in the front end than rear end, because my 18" wheels looks like 16" .
I have seen a M3 in my town that have that look Iīm looking for. But Iīm wondering what the best way to get this look is ? Get some lower springs for front end or go Coil or what you call it.. ? Any experience on this part ?
Also i would like to get LED in my license plate light. I have read on this and saw a couple of postīs about some of you guys experiencing some error codes after mounting LED bulbs.. How can i be sure that this does not happen ? Is there a built in resistence in some of the bulbs, so it tricks the wires to think itīs a normal bulb ?
Thanks in advance

Coilovers and spacers. I was able to replicate the stance but have the car sit lower. Spacers to push the wheels out.

Okay - so coilovers must be the best way to do it I guess.. Which brand are you going with ? H&R ? any thing you can recommend - as mentioned earlier, quite new into the BMW world..

I have ST (by KW) coilovers. I love them but with your winters, I'd go with the KW's. Nice thing about coil overs is that the ride height is 100% adjustable.

if all you want to do is lower the front, supreme power lowering perches drop the front roughly a 1/2" and cost about $100.

Ecs tuning sells some "error free" license plate lights. Take a look at them if you can. They look promising.

In terms of a drop to lessen the wheel gap, get either coilovers, lowering springs like H&R or eibach. Alternatively, there are swift springs which are designed for stock shocks and dampers so you will not prematurely wear your shocks out.

OP, listen to this man. All though eibach/h&r springs work fine with stock shocks it can cause them to have some extra wear. If your budget allows it go coilovers and spacers. If not lowering springs and spacers.
