I was in a long line of cars behind a BMW lowered this far to the ground, in an area we should have been doing a min of 35, we were, I sh*t you not, 3-5MPH so they wouldn't scrape... it was driving me nuts...

He is on air suspension so he is able to adjust ride height.

And you can see that the front lip is all scratched up. Id go crazy. And The ride is so horrible on air. Nothing but squeaks and bangs while cruising.

Putting air bags on a 7 series is just plain silly. No offense to the owner of this car. Just my humble opinion. Everything else on that ride looks mint.

I though air bags were for Low rider chevy S10's and classics??

And the annoying HUMMING comin from the pumps because the car is stuck as there is no air left to get it back up. Lol

The car does look nice when at a STAND-still, and slammed all the way.

KuDOS for havin the balls to bag a 7!!

-_-

The technology and air suspension systems has improved a lot within the last few years. Minus control arm bushings, if you go with a good quality setup and the installer knows what they are doing, you can get it dialed in to be reliable and comfortable.

This is just a parked height, and only if you let out the air.
When you drive it, you must raise up to a height that is driveable,
some a bit higher and some a bit lower (like H&R springs compared to coilovers)

I think it looks cool when it is dropped all the way while parked. And try stealing it then
