I'll see what I can do today. The sun is still high in the sky so the shadows will be a little whacky. Plus it's like 90+ outside so...

What are the hub to fender measurements? That's one of the most consistent measurements to use when comparing ride heights.

Agreed. I do and I don't. *Maybe* Eibach was thinking about luggage, people, fuel in the back. I notice cars with the comparable HR springs have a similar, slightly higher back end.

Event stock the 435i sits a little higher in back... odd or engineering or both.

Yes. I am running Amazon "Eurotech Werkshop" spacers ($86 for a set of 4, and came with extended bolts.). 12mm front and 15mm rear.

And the hub (middle of BMW logo cross-hairs) to fender distance...
FRONT: 13-1/8"
REAR: 14"

Yes the 12mm and 15mm are pretty darn close to flush with the fender well when viewed from the side and top.
