Thumbs down See how the height of my 2008 335xi is...


Ok, so I have been disappointed from day 1 about the height of my xi. I do not regret its great capabilities mostly in the mountains of BC but I would have like the sales rep to point this "feature" to me before I signed the papers.

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.
