Is this normal. More wheel gap in front

Is this normal? I just picked up a used 2015 M3 F80. I noticed that there is more gap in the front wheel well than the back. Is this normal? I can't find any other pictures that show this so I was curious.

Yes that is common to the M3/M4. Virtually no rear wheel gap and the front gap you can fit about 3 fingers in. A set of lowering springs can even that out.

Dang, that's some serious wheel gappage you got there up front. I think it looks worse with the base 18" wheels.

The front has more gap because the wheel well is higher than the rear. The car is actually leveled both front and back. Don't just go out there and buy lowering springs to lower the front without understanding what that does to the suspension geometry and how it may hurt the performance of the car.
