340i: Best option for Lowering Springs

So I'm looking for a modest nice drop, not a slammed look.

My 340i is on the way about a month away.

I have decided I don't want to do a coilover or spring+strust combo because it's a lease.

I have the MSport Stock Non-Adaptive Suspension.

I purchased the H&R Sport Springs, are any spring only options better I should consider?

I'm not tracking or doing anything crazy, just street driving in flat Miami, Florida. All I am trying to avoid is a bumpy ride.

From what I read the HR Sport Springs should be the best choice for my parameters... Anyone care to comment/suggest better alternatives?

Thanks!

Would this also be the choice for 340i xDrive with M adaptive suspension?

Has anyone compiled a list of available options for F30 xDrive with Adaptive Suspension?

From emailing with KW today, it sounds like 340i xDrive has KW V3 available as the only option. No ETA on V1.

From what I hear springs alone aren't going to cut it. And I notice everyone who had springs end up getting coil overs

I hear you, In my opinion you get what you pay for. Sometimes the cheaper route isn't the best route in the long run

He'll certainly be replacing his stock dampers more frequently.
