Question Uneven gaping in rear wheel well

Hi guys... as mentioned in my previous threads i m considering getting a used 97 m3... so yesterday i went to look at it and noticed one thing that concerned me...

the right (passenger) side rear wheel was closer to the rear wheel well than the left... by like half an inch... i checked and the car was sitting on level ground so it wasn't that... also it rides pretty smooth... not sure what it is.. maybe the shock is gone...
but can there be something else? how much do you think it would cost to fix that?

thanx a lot!

Now looking for an M3

It's like that by design. It's to compensate for driver's weight. Also your gas tank is in the back right. Also, if you have an aftermarket exhaust, chances are you've lost about 20 lbs on the rear left.

Its true they do sit lopsided but they also suffer from snapped springs (not hard to fix)
