My wheels sit almost flush with my fenders. You have quite a bit of reverse rake. I have rake. My front is at least 1/2 inch lower than my rear.

I guess if you were to measure it by going off of the rims it would seem like a reverse rake. The amount of tires being tucked in the fenders seems more in the rear, however, if you go by either the line that runs along the side of his car or the straight Edge of the windows, he's almost leveled

Were you on stock 330i Sport suspension? Cause i want to do this to and i dont see why an inch or so would matter on the life of the shocks and struts.
