problem with my suspension?

Hey guys, so the other day i was looking at the car in the garage, i have an e92 335xi, and it seemed to me that the back end was noticeably lower than the front. so i went to the front and put my fist vertically from the top of the tire to the fender and that filled the gap. i then tried to do the same thing in the back and i couldnt get my hand in between the wheel and the fender... i would have needed about an inch more to get it in between. Is that normal or is it something i should have checked out? thanks guys

A picture from a few different angles may help. Just so we can see what you're talking about.

Sounds normal, our cars from the factory have more wheel gap in front than rear - especially with an XI, which is higher than the regular 'i'.

Pic would help as noted to make sure.

My xi also sits like 1.5" higher in the front then the rear, it looks so ugly. I just bought it last night and im already in search of how i want to lower the car.
