2009 F02 rear suspension issues

Hey everyone I just bought a 2009 750li w/ 85,000 miles. Bmw if Arlington tx just put a new engine in vehicle a month ago before I bought it cash for 11000. I've owned 2 other 7 series in the past . A 95 740li and a 2006 740li. I notice when I park car overnight or so the rear suspension drops, but raises when I unlock car immediately. My specialist says he thinks because the garage I park in has leaning to the right floors the sensors react to that. What do u think? Ty in advance for answers ***x1f60a;

Unless you're parking on a seriously steep slope (ie. >15 degrees), it's not going to drop enough to be noticeable. Given how old the car is, the air suspension is probably leaking and the struts should be replaced.

Go with re manufactured air struts if you need to replace..... they are a fraction of the cost when compared to new.
