BMW's published alignment settings and ride height are all measured with about 400 pounds of weight in the car spread between the front seats, the rear seats and the trunk. If your dealer has the latest equipment, they put the car on the rack, load it down and the computer spits out a report that compares the actual settings with the factory specs.

Because of the preloading, you can't compare OEM alignment specs with unloaded settings.
