So here some "official" measurements for you taken from my car which has 15,000km (9300mi). The car is a 335xi Coupe with BMW 17" wheels, no mods whatsoever.
Measured from the top of the tires to the highest point of the wheel well:
Front Left: 3.5" (8.9cm)
Front Right: 3" (7.6cm)
Rear Left: 2" (5cm)
Rear Right: 2.5" (6.3cm)
Let me tell you it look like s**t and totally kill the looks that this car could have. I will lower it soon as soon as I have some free time.
I have been numerous times at the dealer and show them my car parked against other xi. Every single times I was told that the car was according to specs or that it would finish by settling lower (yeah, right)...
Anyway, I have attached a picture so you get a better idea of what I am talking about.
Seems like I have a very high 2008 xi and it is obviously higher than the 2009 version.
Uh ... no sport package?
