The X drive sits 10mm higher than RWD M Sport. The taller stance is most noticeable in the early scenic shots. The latter ones @ the track show the car appearing to be lower, but with two passengers on board.
Thanks!

The xDrive cars do sit a bit higher but I think the 19" 403s hide it pretty well.

If you don't want that keep to the right on the normal tarmac.(Like the OP did in the picture) But it's a legendary bend for sure.

I let a race kitted Porsche 911 pass and take the inside line on that turn. My car with 200lbs of luggage and significant other were too slow for him. I did manage to hit the 2nd smaller Karussel though.

And welcome among us...


How does the car compare to your Infiniti ??
Thanks!

The F30 is exponentially better than the G35 in almost every way. I was worried about having an automatic transmission this time around but I have to say the 8AT shifts lightning fast. I couldn't even dream of shifting as fast on my old 6MT.

Easy to compare if a dealership has a sport line and xdrive, modern or luxury with the same size wheels I guess.
The difference in ride height, 10mm or 0.4" is definitely noticeable, if you have seen both suspension types, between sport and non-sport, or between M Sport RWD and M Sport Xdrive.

For lots of folks, this difference in ride height may be of little importance. For others who must drive in snow belts, the raised ride height is an important bonus feature. However, there are some trade-offs for the raised ride height: the handling that will not be as dynamic as with sport suspension, the ride will be softer and the car's stance will be slightly compromised.

It all comes down to: what's most important to you, the purchaser ?
