    mine has settled quite a bit now, helped by the fact i have just been on a 200mile trip with a car full, and boot full of luggage! Car drove very well, and not even hard on the back! Its just a shame it still likes to pull all over at speed, felt very unsafe, but thats not anything to do withthe springs>

    hmm i think im gonna measure it up in a flat car park tomorrow as my drive is slanted..

    See how much difference there is as ijust checked on etk and there is 3 a 5,7.5 and 10mm pads also available from bmw, then theres a 15mm pad available from turner motorsport..

    Will see how bad mine is and then order the right pad accordingly.

    Thanks for the help!
