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.

My 435i xDrive with the Eibach pro-kit, 15mm spacers in the front and 20mm in the back. Stock 18" 441M wheels which I believe are ET34.

That looks really good, is it the pro kit with B8 shocks and Eibach springs, part number E10-20-031-18-22? Definitely looks lower than the claimed 20mm/10mm front/rear lowering.

Thanks! No it's the stock adaptive struts, hence this thread. Here's what it looks like now with 20" 437 reps:

Thanks, my bad. I'm curious how the springs pair with B8 shocks/struts. Apparently the drop is lesser. Can't find anyone who has the complete kit (B8 shocks + Eibach springs) installed on F32.
