on e60's how many inches is the car lowered from factory, VS the e60s that dont have sport package ?

option:
226 Sports Suspension Settings Sportliche Fahrwerksabstimmung

I remember seeing ours are lowered 1.5 inches, but im not sure if that's correct.

BMW shows the ride height difference between standard and sport suspension at 16mm or .6in. There is also a rough road option which is 18mm or .7in higher than the standard suspension.

It's 15 mm or 0.6 inch difference between sport suspension vs. non-sport suspension. Optically, low profile + staggered setup wheels/tires will seem like the car sits even lower.

Yeah. I hear ya', man. Mine just turned over 138k. I don't think the PO did anything with the suspension on my car. This is coming very soon for me as my left rear strut puked it's oil out and running down the strut and other suspension parts.

What are you looking at in terms of replacement shocks/struts/springs?
