Need help with rims/ideas please!!

In order for me to put 18" CSL rims or M6 replicas on my e90, would i have to drop my car, and if i do, would it be a significantly big drop?

If your car has the sport package you dont need a drop with 18s; they will look fine. However if you're gonna go with 19s you will need a drop or else it'll look like a 4x4. The drop doesnt have to be significant. An inch drop will suffice.
