Default Passenger side lower

Hello was wondering if anyone can help me out. I installed new Koni yellows with H&R springs and the car is lower on the passenger side by about 0.5-1 inch. The whole install process went smooth and i canít figure out why it is lower on the passenger side than the drivers side. I looked it up and people were saying that it was normal and that BMW did that to compensate for the weight of the driver but i was a little skeptical about it thank you in advance !

Have your driven it around a bit before checking your measurements? If not, suspension can bind slightly.

Default Re: Passenger side lower

On older BMWs, the driver's side is always slightly higher when no one is in the vehicle to account for the driver's weight. No clue if newer cars are the same though.
