... when your front lip scrapes on the freeway on dips.
... when you cant put more than half your foot under the front lip.
... when you look to your left and all you see is a "regular" car's door. (lol not in my e92, but it was like that with my s2k)
... when your traction control goes off all the time on driveways because you have to enter at an angle and one rear tire lifts off the ground.

... and i COMPLETELY agree about the railroad track scenario hahahah

when you have to tell your passenger to push down on the trunk because you were mistaken when you thought you could make it over the driveway going into Carls Jr.

Whenever doing this, from past experiences, put on your hazards so the person behind you sees this and will automatically slow down.

Going over speedbumps in a lowered car was a PITMFA.

Not my car... but I saw this on Wilshire Blvd (Los Angeles) about a year ago

I think it's an S430 or something


But yah, with the run flat tires, my 335is STOCK is bumpy on the roads... and it barely makes it up my driveway without scraping. Really need to go up perfectly. I probably would not be able to get up my driveway if I lower my car...

This wasn't on my E93 (I'm only using Eibachs) but happened in my BB6 Honda (with Tein SS coils)

When you tell a chick you can't drive one of her gfs cuz she's too fat and will cause my car to scrape
