Car sits more to the right

My car for some reason is angled more to the right. It's very noticeable from a distance and it is kinda worrying, it's not a few millimeters. I'd say an inch or so. If anyone could help me diagnosis this I'd highly appreciate it.

I swore my old e36 did the same thing. Driver weight offset? Haha

I always thought mine did too, it really looks like it. I measured it on a flat concrete surface though, and they are really close. I almost thought BMW built in a bit of a slope to account for driver weight, but I can't imagine 150-250 pounds would make a big visual difference. I would think any real measureable sag would be from the shocks and/or springs going south on you.

The right side of my car sat about an inch lower than the left until i installed the eibach pro kit and switched out all 4 shocks. Now the car sits level and handles like a dream. If your planning on doing suspension it should fix the issue.
