OEM ride height?

I know I saw a thread on this recently, but I cannot dig it up no matter where I searched. I noticed today washing the car that I could barely wash the rear fender wells, but the front were fine. I grabbed a tape measure and the rear from floor to fender is 26.5 inches, the front is 27.5 inches. I found a thread somewhere on here that said they should be 600mm, but that converts to about 23.5 inches. Where do you stock guys ride at? Thanks, Derek

While I'm not a 1M owner, the technical answer is that it's going to be different for everybody. Fuel load, options, tyres etc. are going to affect your ride height. There are also a range of different springs for the 1M to factor in the weight of certain options. From the 10 or so 1Ms I've seen, there isn't much of a gap between the rear tyre and arch, so I'm pretty certain yours is going to be normal.
