e91 xi sports package alignment specs needed...

Hi...have been searching for e91 328xi 17" sports package alignment specs for my 2008...have found the specs in a file named 12.23 alignment.pdf, but it didn't reference all wheel drive...not sure if the all wheel drive specs are different than the rear wheel drive specs...that said, anyone know?...or does anyone have the specs i need?...i am using non-run flat continental DWS all season tires...

my wagon has the same inside tire wear that many reference...since i prefer tire life over some loss of corner handling, i'd like to understand the spec and decide if i should have the alignment done "flat" or not...

thanks...R

I'm pretty sure that X drive and sport suspension where never fitted together. So, you should be looking at the alignment specs for the standard xi.

true...thank you for clarifying this...

i can't find the specs for an x-drive e90/91 with 17" tires...i found the 18" tire spec, but am assuming there's a difference with the 17"...especially with the staggered tire setup of my 328xi...i have the sports package which has the staggered tires (but no suspension difference - as previously mentioned)...

Fitting different rims and tires shouldn't change the alignment spec.
