Clearance question

Distance between my rear tire and body is too low, in front it seems okay. I have 330ci.
However in manual i found this picture, which looks strange rear clearance is supposed to be low?
Someone have real numbers for front and back?

To me that picture shows the rear wheel arches are actually smaller than the front, probably because the front arches need to allow the front wheels to protrude outside of the body line when you are turning sharply.


Riding in style

Are you the original owner? Is it possible someone lowered the car?

Brett nailed it....
All cars have higher front archers to accommodate harder cornering !
