UUC spings, allignment required?

Is an allignment required when installing the UUC tuned spring set on a 330ci? The site says stock alingment specs can be respected, when I put them on will the allingment not be stock?

yes, you have to.

The shop should then adjust suspension as close as possible to OEM settings.

Bummer eh. Alignment is kinda pricey where I live.

Yes, it's good to go ahead and get an alignment done (better safe than sorry).

Everytime you replace shocks or springs in any car, you need to get an alignment. You dont want your tires to wear out prematurely or have the car pull to either left or right while your driving.

BTW it's going to be the toe setting and and rear camber that you should look at. The slight extra negative camber up front from lowering is desirable, and the caster would not change from lowering.
