Pictures of E90 xi's lowered???

Hey I am pretty to new to this forum. Purchased an 07 328xi about 2 months ago. I plan on lowering it but not sure what springs to go with on the Bilstein Sport Shocks. Either the Eibach pro kit or the H&R sports. i have searched a lot on this site trying to find pictures of E90 xi's lowered but haven't had much luck (only find pictures of e90 non xi's). Can you please post pictures of your E90 xi lowered and what set up you have. Thanks.

Oh yeah and there is a lil trick to dropping the front a lil lower than the silver E90 that Nick posted above that will allow it to sit like mine, hit me up if you are interested.

Also since Nick (Jlevi) posted here as well... I will give them a free plug:
I got my M3 fr bumper and Skirts from them and everything fits like a gem! Fantastic guys who took care of me in a jam!

Here is a shot that shows my drop a little better:

H&R's stance is more desirable than Eibach's, that is why they are less common, and they are more expensive.

how did you get the front to get a bit lower than the silver e90?

i plan on H&R springs for my e92 328xi and might need to drop the front a bit as well

what tire sizes do you have? and the wheel are 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 right?

I'm the guy with the silver E90. I was using H&R sport springs and was not happy about that reverse rake. I now have KW V3 on and the front end is now in check and the handling is much better, too. My sig pic shows my current look.
