Important Need help with a suspension decision!!

I am on pace to win a contest at my company and if I do there is prize money involved and I want to spend it on my new IS350! I am most likely going to get the full GFX lip kit from Sewell Lexus, (it is currently on sale, does anyone know when the sale is going to end?)

Soooo the last thing I am going to do is lower it, this is where I need help.

I do NOT like the VIP look.
I like factory low look I guess you could say.
I only like OEM mods, very clean.

So I am thinking of going with the F-Sport Lowering Springs and keeping the stock shocks. I have read many different reads on them, some say they are perfect, some say they feel jittery and nervous with the stock shocks. I have read so many things I don't know what believe!

Basically I just want the car to be a little lower and still handle the same, a little firmer would be fine but no nervousness or weirdness.

Can someone who is experienced help me in my decision?

Thanks guys!

Megaman, I just upgraded my suspension on my 08 350 last month. I went with the KW Variant coil over. That dropped it nicely and it rides great. I have 18 x 8's in the front and 18 x 9.5 in the back with no scrubbing at all.
