it seem to me that it sits alittle higher than a normal 325i

Any truth to this.

it sits on a thicker spring pad, a few mm (3 or 5 mm)
you can simply change the pad for a regular one, or lower the suspension

Lowering the suspension is kinda against the point of the car but yeah

The XI rides higher because it was technically built for a little bit slightly more hazardous conditions that require AWD.

How do I change that pad will a dealer do this. Also I checked into lowering it but HR Springs are the only ones I can get, plus the HR's only lower it about a inch so i dont think that the $700.00 is worth it.

I had a 99 328i lowered no ss and the xi with ss it a much better ride so I don't really want to lower the car but if I can but the pad on that would be great.

any clue
