The tyre combo is over the xdrive recommended 1%. Rear offset with that 275 tyre will cause you rubbing issues. Especially after lowering, but fender roll would fix that. I assume you have E90? Because E92 is different case.

If you really want to get these i would change the front to 235/35/19 and add 12mm spacer and then lower it with fender roll to rear. Also assuming that the wheels are 19x8.5 et40 and 19x9.5 et22.

So basically i should pass on it as i would have to buy a new set of fronts.

Yeah pretty much. I know some xdrive drivers use that combo without issues, but i wouldn't take risk since there are better tyre combos available.
