Who's the lowest thread?

Only post a picture of your car if you also have a pic with a measurement!!!

So to the best of my knowledge another thread like this doesn't exist on here, so I thought I would start this up as I've seen this on many other forums.

Lets see who has the lowest ride height on e90post. The only true way to tell is a centerline of fender to ground measurement.

Tell us your wheel and tire spec and also what your suspension setup is!

I'll start:
E90
BBS Style 5, 18 x 8 et7.5
Achilles ATR sport 215/35-18
KW V2, maxed out
23 1/8"

wouldnt a better measurement be center of wheel to fender? to be even lower, you can cheat with tire sizes and rim sizes.

Center of wheel to fender is good for measuring drop. But in terms of who's lowest, fender to ground is the measurement that matters. It's possible to cheat the fender to wheel measurement as well. Get big enough wheels and you can still 4x4 it while tucking rim.

I really don't know my offsets since I bought these rims used so i'm just guesstimating and excuse my dirty rims since I just took this picture minutes ago after the rain stopped.

Here's mines:
E92
DPE SL5
F-19 x 8.5 +22, R-19 x 10 +22
Hankook Ventus V12 F-215/35, R-245/35/19
ST Coilovers (Rears are maxxed but fronts still has more room to go lower)
23 15/16"
