all you need is some new springs, if want to get better handling out of it then you could get some sport dampers as well, but probably wouldnt be a good idea if you still have a warranty. check out h&r's website they make some of the best springs out there.

moving to E46

you will need a spring/shock combo. lowering the car more than 0.5 to 0.75 inches puts the shock absorbers out of useful piston range.

again, dinan has the goodies here...

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
Dinan is very good, but i think they are overpriced. H&R has some of the best springs/shocks around.

H&R Website

If you're looking for more of a drop, you can go with the cupkit like L337 has on his car. There is also the coilovers. The coilovers are more expensive, but you can adjust the ride height yourself.
