Mine's the same way, and I know there has been discussion of this before -- and everyone's was the same. I notice it every time I swap wheels winter to summer and back.

I wouldn't worry, mines not perfectly even either.

Also, your left rear is definitely low on air... I'm sure you've noticed already though

It varies from tire to tire but it'll be around 30 psi. Check the tire sidewall for the exact psi.

Do NOT check the tire sidewall for this information!! The tire sidewall lists the maximum pressure that the tire is rated to safely handle, NOT the pressure you should be running, which is listed in the manual and also on the sticker attached to the driver's side doorjamb. Inflating tires to their maximum rated pressure can not only result in poor handling, ride comfort, and tire wear, but it can also be dangerous!

Side note: I noticed that my doorjamb lists the pressures that the manual shows for the E90 M3 even though I have an E92, which the manual says should run lower pressures -- and that seems to be true of all US-spec E92s, so it wasn't a factory glitch just with my car. Not sure if there was some regulatory issue that caused that, but I run what BMW specifies in the manual.
