335i E90, How much to drop?

Getting ST V1 Coilovers installed
DPE 19x8.5 and 19x10 (offset is not disclosed)
Tire Sizes 235/30/19 and 265/35/19

- lowering for a more aggressive look
- don't want the car to be slammed
- don't want rubbing
- some inconvenience is ok (not too much steep driveways or hills for me, so I am not so worried)
- Eibach spring is not enough of a drop

With all the information I gave above...what drop height would you guys recommend?
Would "closing the gap" be too aggressive?
Would "1 finger gap" be a good drop height?

i just lowered my E90. My wheels are on order but I have a fairly aggressive drop at the moment. I am currently on OEM 162's. I don't think my front has barely enough to put your finger under.

I will adjust the height when I get my wheels on. I ordered M3 offsets so I know i will have to roll the fenders....
