Either buy new springs, cut existing springs, or run smaller tires (depending on what you are currently running).

Buy some lowering springs for the front. I've seen some used in the classifieds.

Cut your springs?? WTF is this, Ricers'r'us??

You own a BMW. Use the sense you hopefully have and search(This site has been around for 5+ years, if you can think of it someones already asked it) and then purchase legitimate springs. H&R, Eibach, etc...
