lowering springs

Hi, and looking for some help.

I am looking to install lowering springs to my R56 MCS with a 30mm drop for looks and slight road holding improvement.

I have ruled out coil-overs as i don't need the adjustment that they give, only do about 1000 miles a year which is for pleasure and I'm not looking to track the car.

I'm looking at various reviews for manufactures of the springs, but when looking at additional components, I can't see if I need any additional hardware for the set up.

Would the lowering spring set up require any more components inanition to the springs?

When they are settled, I will get the alignment sorted out to eliminate any tire wear problems.

Thanks in advance.

Not really, except you shouldn't put on lowering springs without fitting 'matched' dampers to cope.
See this almost identical post/thread:
And yes, get a full alignment after fitting, preferably on a Hunter.
