2.5" is about the most you can lower without doing drastic things to your wheels and tires. But if you are set on slamming the car as much as possible check out bimmerworld, they do eibach custom springs. I am planning on putting them on my car in early may. They will be able to tell you how low you can go and what else you will need to change to get that low.
i dont actually want to slam it, i just want it pretty low. i dunno. 1.5 - 2 inches would probably make a bigger difference then i think it would. i cant afford m3 bumpers or anything like id really like, so id just like to make the car looks sportier other ways. but the thing is my new wheels and tires made the car a bit taller, so i wasnt sure how much id need to lower it to get the look im after.
Cheapest way would be just to get sport springs... but that wouldnt be best. Your looking at a price much higher than an M3 bumper... You also realize that you will feel a penny when you run over it...

Lower your BMW without sacrificing comfort. We had a tough time finding lowering springs that gave us both the improved handling we craved and the ride comfort we wanted. So we developed our own springs! They're made specifically for drivers who want the aggressive look and better handling of lowering springs, but not the harsh ride associated with most sport springs. They'll lower your BMW an average of 30 mm (about 1 1/4''). Engineered and manufactured in Germany of cold-rolled silicon steel, they're finished with a durable powder coat in Bavarian Autosport red. Available only from Bavarian Autosport.
