2002 325Xi Suspension Build

I am going to be ordering suspension parts soon so that I have everything ready to go after this winter is over. I have listed everything below that, from what I have read on this forum, I should get. Please feel free to tell me if you think something is uneccessary or if I forgot something.

Also... Should I go with the rear 5mm spring pad or go with the 15mm one? If I go with 5mm.... Should I buy front lowering spring perches? How does this setup look with just the 5mm pads in rear and no additional lowering other than the Eibach springs... Does anyone know?

Eibach Pro Spring Kit (2089.140) - $257.92

Koni Shock - Sport Series (8741-1481RSPORT) Right Front - $200.10
Koni Shock - Sport Series (8741-1481LSPORT) Left Front - $197.60

Rear Shock Hardware kit (ES#257139) - $7.20 X 2 = $14.40
Front Flat Washer (ES#50876) - $1.39 X 2 = $2.78
Front Upper Strut Mount Reinforcement Plate (ES#128656) - $8.99 X 2 = $17.98
