Tire and Wheel Spacer Question

I am a 2000 BMW 323Ci and I am running 235/35/19 on the front and 255/35-19 on the rear. I am about to do a suspension overhaul and drop my car and I want it to be HELLA FLUSH!!!! What size wheel spacers do I need to get so it will be square and flush?

Below is my car right now. The rear part of the suspension is terrible and my shocks and springs are shot!

Also, If you "Hella Flush" it, you kind of kill the purpose of a sports car/ sports sedan. Hit a hard turn SCRAPE, and you'll need new fenders, going up a hill becomes more and more difficult, and Speedbump = Game OVER.

Well I was getting my fenders cut on next Wednesday before I "flush" it. Do you think this will help?

I hate it when some of you guys are of little help. If you wont help me then just stay off the forum otherwise I would like you to tell me why. Is it a safety issue of does it just not look good to you?

The first car (white) is the look that I am goin for. I love this stance and I will do whatever I need to do to get it. Maybe I have to term all wrong but this looks "flush" to me. Please tell me what do you think. Copy and paste the link below and tell me what I need to do. Thanks!

First off your car is not an M3.
btw that m3 is not hella flush. it's a combination of c/o, rim size,offset/plates.

this is hella flush (aka stance look) and other is mexiflush

Thanks for your explanation. I really appreciate it. So in your opinion what do I need to doubt my car as close to the white one that I showed you? I know my car ain't an m3 but I want it to look at least close to that so what do you mean by plates, c/o, and offset? I am new to this suspension stuff. Thanks in advance!!!
