If it is a faulty spring, I saw threads that saying a Eibach profit spring can be used with my M sport shock (damper), am I correct?
If so, will the car sit lower as the Eibach spring seems to be a lowered spring?
Also, if it is not the spring but the damper is faulty, the only I can rectify it is to have a new OEM M sport suspension like ATTN is selling? Or a coilover like BC BR?

For the Eibach profit springs or BC BR coilover, does it come with a set of 2 or 4?
And these springs or coilover, can be fitted in front or rear too?
Sorry to ask such noob questions as I have no knowledge in suspension mods.....

Just checked the wheels,
Front left 36cm Front right 35cm

Rear left 35cm Rear right 33cm

These are the distance between the rim center cap and the wheel arch.

I believe there is something wrong with the rear right suspension?

They're still here if you want them mate.

Have you thought about sending it to a professional to diagnose?

Hi ATTN,
I am going to get it checked by mechanic someday next week, too busy with work recently.
meanwhile, just trying to do everything i can do, such as measuring, and see if i will get some insights from ppl here.

I'm going to check my Bentley shop manual tonight for the spec on height. It should be easy to check and reference the chart. I've never seen a FSM not have these specs.

I think you'll find there isn't a car on the planet with exactly wheel spaces all round - a 10mm difference in a 350mm drop isn't actually that significant and probably in spec but the only way you'll find this out is to talk to someone with BMW workshop manuals - try calling your local BMW dealer service department.

Just had a chat with Pete @ Advan, we measured it and it looks like I have the same thing happening with my rear right suspension.
Rear rhs is approximately 10mm lower than the rear lhs.
Coilovers for me soon anyways, so I'm not too fuss about it.

Thanks Zen, did Pete figure out what causes the difference?
If it is just the M sport suspension spring being faulty, i will just go for Ebach prokit.
i am not going to go coilovers unless the whole suspension is faulty.
so, really keen to know what causes the difference, if Pete could tell.
and that info is very important to me before i take my car to have mechanical check up next week...at least i have some info before hand.

He believes it might be the springs..

Great, if thats the case, a Ebach Prokit might help.
read some threads that Ebach prokit is lowered spring, does it just lower than stock normal springs? or does it lowered like what our normal M sport springs did? or even further lowered with our M sport suspension?
