Dropping 2017 3 hatch....?

Hey guys - first off, I know NOTHING. Lol. I just bought a 2017 Mazda 3 5-door Sport yesterday. Super happy about it. I'm gonna tint the windows, add chrome door handles, and I want to drop it. This is actually my first time modding a car at all, ever.

My question is - HOW do I go about dropping it say an inch and a half or so(does that sound acceptable)? It's a daily driver and I just like the way these LOOK lowered. Any advice/suggestions are greatly appreciated......a friend of mine told me to simply buy some new springs and bring it into a tire place to have them swap the springs out for me. Is that all there is to it? Are there particular springs that work best?
