New springs

I'm looking to get some new springs to drop my 325e 86.
I want between 1 and 1.5 inch of drop.

Which springs would you recommend I buy?

Thanks!

As far as I know:

1) Vogtland springs: 1.6/1.5"
like these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/VOGTL...031210010r1550

2) H&R OE Sport springs: 1.0/1.0"
like these: http://www.autocarparts.com/part/136/8/

Other ones give around 1.8" and up.

Maybe somebody can add to this, cause I am looking at those for mine

I'm using Intrax springs on my cabrio. -1.6" front and -1.2" rear, but I find the rears to be a little bit soft for how low it puts the car, so I wouldn't really recommend them. http://www.intraxsuspension.eu/site/index.php

The Eibach's on my 5er are awesome! Tight. Very tight. Love 'em!
