You could buy a H&R set of springs wich lowers the car with approx. 35mm/25mm.

Or you could buy a set of AC schnitzer springs, price is more expensive and only 25mm drop.

Also a lot of other brands available but you must look for one with GOCA papers, otherwise you will get in troubles with the car control....

i run 20" with h&r sport springs, would definately recommend them. they tightened up the handling so much and now the car does not wallow like a boat going around corners.
Due to you having the 3.5L, a slightly heavier engine than mine the drop should be just right, mine to be honest is just a little bit to high for me on the front, but apparently as i said the bigger engines can sit up to 1cm lower!

Go for H&r, Eibach sportline is to much of a drop in my opinion and prokit not enough.

hope this helps
