spring advice..2011 e90 335xi

hey guys, i tried searching, but maybe im using the wrong wording......or possibly there just is no info out there,
i ordered my 2011 335xi sedan 6 speed fully loaded with m sport package, im looking for a slight drop maybe 1 inch.....the only ones i believe i have seen were the h&r springs that drop it around 1.5"...does anything exist yet? or am i dreaming lol....i dont want to slam the car and deal with bad camber issues and changing camber and control arms again...been doing that for the last few cars and its a pita.

also can i put spacers on the xdrive system on stock m sport wheels??

my goal: 1 inch drop with spacers for a more aggressive look

thanks in advance guys, im not a nob to car forums but am a complete noob to the german world

Usually H&R sport drops about 1.2" in the front and 1" in the rear. To avoid those camber issues I would suggest getting an alignment after your springs have settled. Also factory BMW alignment spec sucks which equates to camber wear.
Also you can add spacers to your wheels to make them more flush or aggressive.
Send me a PM if you got any questions or want to make an order.
