The 535 that I'm looking at has the Dinan Stage II. However the height of the wheel well is only 25". I believe stock is around 27". The car currently has the stock 225/60x15 tires & wheels. The owner says that the height will be slightly taller when the 235/40x18 wheels are put back on. Joe said that might be true; as the shorter sidewalls of the 40 series tire would be stiffer and would not 'flex' as much as the stock 60 series tires - thus 'sit' higher'.

That's why I'm comparing the 'real world' riding heights of lowered cars.


For answer to your question, Check out Bruno's website for data re lowering springs, see here:

One company Bruno doesn't have info on is Dinan. Dinan lowers the car only 3/4". For more Dinan info, check out www.dinanbmw.com
