My Ride: 2004 330Ci
Looking for a 5-10mm drop in the front on stock sport suspension

I have a 2004 330Ci, and I'd like to drop the front anywhere from 5-10mm. For the rear, I'll be pulling the lower spring pad for a 5mm drop. Ideally I only lower the front 5mm as well.

My goal here is to retain the compliant factory ride quality while slightly decreasing fender gap and keeping decent clearance; it's a daily driver. In other words, I want to keep the stock springs and shocks. I have picked up some UUC Swaybarbarians to add spring rate in corners though.

For my e30, I put in e90 top hats that lowered the front roughly 10mm on H&R OE Sports to get exactly what I wanted. Is there something similar for the e46?
