3"? No way bro, lower it at the most 2" with H&R race springs or Cupkit 2.1"frt 1.7rear, that's even pushing it to be a daily driven car. Rubbing depends on the offset and width of the wheels/tire size.

You also have to think about tyre size... width has a lot to do with how low you can go with or without rubbing being an issue..

I don't think you can pull off 3 inches unless you completely reshape the inside wells.

look at the camber angles on those wheels/tires. there will be no way to lower it 3'' w/o anything going wrong lol. it would probably be the stiffest ride ever

The lowest coilover kit that I know available for an e36 is H&R Coil Overs:

Front: adj. -1.0"-2.5" / Rear: adj. 1.0"-2.0"

Driving on the street with your car lowere all the way down to 2.5" is pretty stupid, I have to be super careful with my e36 lowere 1.5" on 19's, esp. getting in and out of my driveway.
