Just wondering how's the ride quality compared to stock?
I may have the front down another half inch, only problem may be getting over that ridge at the end of the driveway. I think the rubber bits are scraping already.

Ride quality is much better than stock xDrive IMO. xDrive suspension is floaty and there's quite a bit of travel given that it's taller than a standard RWD. Ride is closer to the sport suspension but maybe a tad stiffer. Handling feels more controllable and response is better, most likely due to the stiffness (cornering is also improved). On the average road it's not a sacrifice of comfort compared to stock. Over bumps the dampening definitely responds better, I always found stock to be very harsh and slow to return over bumps. No weird noises or grinds, clearance is good, and I can throw a hard corner pretty confidently.

Now for the alignment!
