I've certainly noticed the variation. That's why I measured in several locations. The fronts varied from 27 1/4 to 27 1/5 so I'll split the difference and say the fronts are 27 3/8, which is 3/8...

I have 3,000 miles on my car now - wouldn't it have settled by now? If it drops a bit more, I won't complain. The wheel gap is definitely closer to the X-Drives than I'd like.

I agree - the center of the center cap to the wheel arch is the most accurate measurement b/c it eliminates the variables of wheels, tires, tire pressure, etc. The reason I measured from the ground...

M Adaptive Ride Height Seems High - Can Someone Else Measure?

I recently picked up a 340i, RWD with M-Sport and M Adaptive Suspension. I have 19" style 403 rims with stock tires. Everything I read (both here and on other sites) said the M-Sport and M Adaptive...

I second this. The Captain and I used to rail against our E90 sport suspensions. It was so harsh and crashy whenever the car was driven on poor pavement. The car was pretty much unbearable when...

I would go for saddle brown. I've always loved dark blue exterior over saddle interior. Super classy, but not boring.

I've noticed this in comfort but not so much when in Sport mode. I seem to notice the lag even less in Sport +.

I believe this is turbo lag. In an MT, you can raise the RPMs a bit before letting...

You are saying you don't like the gearing of the 8 speed auto, not the fact it's an auto. If the MT had 8 gears with the same ratios, it wouldn't have any passing power in 8th gear either.

Sometimes life calls for a Buick. For all other times, there's the Sport and Sport+ Mode. The F30 with adaptive suspension allows for me to have my cake and eat it too.

When you talk about road noise, are you talking about bumps or the general hum/drone that tires make when they get older?

I loved the Nuluxe seats when my IS350 was brand new. But after a couple years, it feels decidedly fake... Very rubbery and obviously synthetic.
