If it did get down into the correct position to after driving, then great. But it's definitely NOT the way an installer should justify not installing the perch correctly from the get go.

It makes me upset at BMW Service Departments because a lot of people go to them for this install and pay a lot of money. But in actuality, the BMW Service folks are probably some of the least experienced in installing this type of kit.

you spot on brother, that's why I am redoing it, I actually did the rear my self again as the adjuster was turning in the body and used some betalink to prevent this.
also If installed it I would of measured it and thought..WTF!!!
why is this lower than the other side and troubleshoot further, but as usual, dealers need to get through many cars and it's a big rush rush
I will def update once I strip and reinstall it, what a ball ache.
Do it right the first time damit!!

customer will never notice
