Question Fitment opinions for bc coils

Im installing Bc couls next week on my 2013 premium, wonder what your guys opinions are for dampening/how much to drop it for a decent looking fitment.
Apparently the bc for this car comes 1 inch drop out of the box but im thinking a little more is probably necessary, and dampening opinions are welcome!
currently running 18x8.0 front and rear ( i know lame ) with 20/25mm spacers.
Im thinking 2 inches but anyone that knows better feel free to throw me your opinion.

The lower you go the worse your suspension geometry will be.
Around round 1" is good. Front need to be dropped a bit more than rear. 1 finger gap between fender and top of the wheel looks good.

Dampening, about 3 kicks away from full soft. But really should adjust baced on your preference.
Drive the car for few days to let suspension settle, might have to readjust height later.

I probably lowered rear 3/4" and front 1.5". Preferably I would raise my front a bit to match the gap above the rear tire.
Overall you have to drop front a bit more than back as it sits higher.
I have 1 (lose) finger gap in the back and about a pinky finger gap in the front (top of tire to fender, not sure if you can zoom in).

Picture at the same plane as wheels attached. When you stand up you dont see any gap. Tires are 245/35 front 265/35 rear. 45 sidewall tires in same width pretty much closed in all the gap. But you get weight savings with 35 profile.

That looks quite nice. If you dont mind, what brand, model, size, and offset are your rims?
