changing suspension on stock rims?

I'm waiting on my order for a Comp pkg m3. Was wondering has anyone changed the suspension and kept the 19 comp wheels that come with the car? Any pics would be great or advice. I'm looking on getting Bilsteins pss9's and slightly lowering the ride height and then in the future getting different rims.

PSS9s have crap springs. Put real coil overs on it. GC or TC Kline.
