Arrow F30 - aftermarket suspensions

I am looking forward and waiting for the Eibach Pro-Kit for the F30:

looking at their website:

It's currently in development (with no pricing available yet)
Set of 4 performance springs REF#20121.140
(for the 328i N20 only)
what about the N55 335i? i hope it would be the same no? or because of the weight difference, it would be another reference number?

This would be my first time retrofitting:

what would you suggest?
just get the Spring

get the Eibach/Bilstein combo

get Coil over Spring?
if so, which product specifically?
and what would be the advantages/disadvantages/trade-offs compared to the previous two choice?
(keeping in mind that i just want to have a lower stance, replacing the stock BMW suspension. I dont have the sport suspension, and i am not planning to be hardcore drifting/tracking...)

Thanks in advance guys/gals!

EDIT: Thanks for the thread move.... i forgot there was a specific technical section!
I re-editted my post

Very interested to see which route you go, eibach needs test cars for their suspension tests. Email them and you may get a nice hook up

I'm patiently waiting for Bilstein to release their shocks and struts. Hopefully soon!! It's good to know Eibach is releasing a spring specifically for the 328i, since H&R doesn't offer that.

If your primary goal is aesthetics then I would not go with a full coil over setup. It will be far more costly and the ride will be significantly worse. For your needs I would suggest springs with properly valved shocks.
