Check this info and have your dealer alter your settings via DIS - http://www.janixworld.com/x5/misc/DI...t%20Offset.pdf

You can lower your X5 with H&R springs to close those unsightly gaps by about 1.5 inches (front) and approx 1 inch (rear) by using the supplied links. After you've done this the rear still sits a little higher than the front. You can ask your dealer to further lower the rear air suspension using the DIS computer to complete the looks.
