Easiest solution would be coilovers, so you can adjust the height as you want.
With lowering springs it is what it is. When i bought my car it had HR lowering springs already installed.-35mm front and -20mm rear (part nr. 29187-1).
Here are some pictures.http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...9&postcount=30.

coilovers are the only way to go. i would hate not being able to fine tune the ride height.

springs are cheaper if you dont have the money for coils

wouldn't it have been easier to just get wheels with the correct offsets you wanted from the beginning?

Wait and save. It'll be worth it in the end. You can ask anyone who's made the mistake from springs to coils.
