if it's a 335i then the front will sit lower, almost the same as the rear.
since yours is 328 & the engine is lighter so the front will be higher.
the only way to go is to cut the spring (Not Recommended) or get some coilover.

Yeah its a 328, I have though about cutting some of the coil to level it out but it looks like if its cut, it will not seat on the shock right.

Or get 328 spec springs... Don't know why they aren't available in the US.
H&R has two spring rates depending on the weight of the car.

Rossifumi is correct. Outside the US, H&R offers different spring rates for the 328i.

Cutting coils off the spring will lower the car more, but at the same time it will absolutely ruin the ride quality and performance; it's a very "Honda" thing to do.
