    Default Suspension Normal???

    Just a quick one - the rear suspension on my 535i sport looks a lot lower than the front... Is this the norm? Ive only had the car a couple of months, and didn't pay much attention to it at first but now its bugging me.

    Its the same on both sides and it gives a good ride, and the handling is great (my e46 handled like a double bed in comparison).

    You might be able to see what im talking about in my picture?

    Thanks in advance.

    Totally abnormal.. better fix it ASAP before you get the dreaded "Lowrider Shimmy" that sends you into a spin!

    I thought maybe you were going for a statistical approach... ask a few times and average the answer.. myself... I'm trying to get over 1000 posts today so I figured I'd help with the statistics.
