I am not the guru of anything auto related but personally if I did go with 20's I would go with the Eibach springs with shaved mounts and e36m bump stops. That way you can keep as much of the stock suspension travel as possible. I am running 19s (avante garde m359s) with that exact suspension setup and I think it is a decent drop that eliminates 90% of the gap. With 20s I would imagine you would have none with a moderate drop. Remember lowering springs tend to make shock wear out prematurely. Not that you will have that problem any time soon but it is something to keep in mind farther down the road. Especially if you want to keep EDC functionality as there is no aftermarket EDC shock alternative you will be spending big dough when the time does come one day.
