F30 sitting high at the front - not in these

I know myself and others have observed that the F30 seems to sit high at the front - well at least on the pics of brand new cars that I've seen.

Just came across a couple of 330d M Sports on BMW AUC and they certainly DO NOT seem to be sitting high to me. They are both on 19's, but wouldnt have thought that would make any difference as the overall diameter of the tyre is the same as 18's.
I can only assume that after 3-4 months the front end settles down at bit. They both look good anyway....

Could be the contrast of the tyre wall against the gap?

Some photos the the gap and the tyre blend in, so it looks like a bigger gap?

Did you hit the options list like me? Most of the pre-reg cars seem basic spec not even having adaptive suspension that all road testers say is a 'must'.

Unfortunately I didn't have the cash to hit it too hard, M Sport with sun-glass is all I could afford, but seeing this; http://www.sytner.co.uk/bmw/search/b...e&vhl=-338247# made me think that for a couple of grand more than I paid, I could've got a whole lot more! But then I wouldn't have had the finance deal so it's not all bad.....

Notice the diff in brake disc size: car on left M-Sport Braking System 2NH: car on right with std brakes.
2NH is worth the extra 570

PS The M-Sport Braking System 2NH looks better with the 5-spoke 18" wheels as it fills the wheel up better and you see more of the brake disc!
