Post a picture of your lowered x drive

As the title asks, can you please post a picture of your lowered x drive to show off the ride height?
Iíve recent lowered my x drive to what I thought was a reasonable height, went to go check out the axle angle and they look awfully scary. Iím questioning the whole thing at this point.


Please post the ride height with a tape measure (bottom or wheel lip to arch of fender) with wheel size,

also if youíve logged some miles at that height Iíd love to see what sort of lifespan these axles now have like this..
Thank you!!

Hi!

I have recently installed h&r spring on my 335xi with the stock shocks. Front height from the floor to the fender arch is 65,5cm (25,79inches) and 64,5cm (25,39 inches) at the rear. I have 19" wheels also with 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 tyres.

So I am currently on air suspension but was on H&R performance coilovers. My ride height with coilovers is basically my ride height with bags for now. Here are the heights

Very nice! I am going with Bilstein B4's struts & Bilstein B4 shocks with H&R Sports Springs on both front and back on my 08 335xi E92. I'll take some pictures after I get an alignment and hand wash.
