X5 leans to the right?
This is an update of my previous post about the Level Control System Malfunction. The X5d was towed to the dealer to fix the issue last week. It turned out that the airbag at the rear right blew out (I just bought the new car two weeks ago). The dealer replaced the airbag and recalibrated the spring. The car drives fine now.
What I noticed is that the right side of car is lower than the left side now. It is actually quite visible so that I decided to measure the length between fender and the floor. The results are as follows.
Front Left: 33 Inch
Rear Left:31 Inch
Front Right:31 Inch
Rear Right:29 Inch
The balance looks ok but it is apparent that the car is leaning to the right by 2 inches. Is it common for BMW? I heard the story that the left side is normally higher to accommodate the weight of driver but I cannot believe the difference is so large. Another thing I noticed is that the right goes back to normal height after I drive the car for a trip. It however turns lower again when the car is parked for a while. Does it mean the spring in the right rear side need some time to settle down? Should I drive to the dealer again to have the car checked? So frustrated now... Any opinion is appreciated. Thanks.
