    Dan get a set of 50mm lowering springs from PI mate

    I doubt the rear has been lowered. It's more likely to look lower on the rear due to the difference in ARCH cut

    we now have pi suspension and springs available just out of interest.

    thats standard on bemmers,rears always look lowered and the fronts sit high thats why kits are always a lot lower for fronts than the rears hence say 50 drop fronts 30 drop rears etc make sure you get good ones you wil regret fitting cheap springs £30 is very cheap.good luck though hope you get it sorted out .mark.
