Thankfully I'm not yet ready for new suspension parts, but when I do I want to preserve the existing clearance. Even if I have to pay more for the OEM parts to do that.
Just changing the shocks alone will have no impact on the ride height. You can pair your original BMW springs with Bilstein, Sachs or BMW shocks and the ride height will not change.

Only by changing the springs will the ride height be lowered.
