Any recommendation on dropping it? Never done that before but I know it will look much better. How you go about that?

you have a couple options, depends on how much you wanna spend and how low you wanna go. Springs are cheapest ($200-$350) but they are really bouncy and have a fixed ride height. Coilovers are the best option in my opinion but they are pricey. I think they're well worth the money. Improved handling, adjustable ride height, and many brands offer adjustable dampening so you can adjust how soft or firm the ride is. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to PM me. I have ST coilovers and I absolutely love them.

Looks great. The BMW grilles are a perfect match. They are glossier than I thought

Thanks a lot.

So when getting springs, you need to decide size / how much you want to drop before purchasing as you cant adjust correct? So any recommendation on how to determine that? Obviously it needs to be lowered, but I love the way it drives now and want avoid rub. How do i find right balance and go from there?

Also any recommendation if this should be done at BMW dealer or rather not? I bet at dealer its more expensive but then again probably more reliable?

Lastly I always try to keep in mind carfax records and trade-in / resell value. So I don't want to customize too drastically. Unless its easy to change back to factory settings when time comes

Your best options for springs are h&r springs and eibach pro kit springs. Eibach will lower the car the least amount. H&r is popular because its cheap and you can lower it about 1.3-5 inches all the way around. If you wanted a more drastic drop h&r race would be the way to go. However they have a much harsher ride quality. Do not get them installed at BMW. Go to another reputable shop and get this done. You can look in the regional section for where you are from and there should be a list of shops you can check out to get the install

Any recommendation on darker headlights / xenons?
