I don't know...lately when I look at my car, there seems to be bigger gaps between the fender lips and top of tires on the passanger side of the car. The drivers side looks lower. I try to look at this everywhere I park because I realize if I am not on level ground it might add to this illusion. It always looks the same.....what do u think?

Honestly I think that the left side of BMW's looks slightly higher or actually may be.

I do know that when I installed coil overs, the left side was always higher even though the settings on the coils were the same. When I sat in my car it evened out perfectly. Coudl just be that BMW compensates ot designs the car to balance when a single driver is in the vehicle.

dont worry.....it it most likely an illusion anyhow. :thumbup:

interesting... u would think that since the battery is on the passenger side, that it would be lower...

:dunno:

Damn , u know what? I was thinking the same thing before. I told the dealer and they were like the couldn't see anything, but I always have this feeling that my left side fender gap is much lower. I have replaced my springs and shocks, but it still looks the same:banghead:
