Ride height help

So I just came back from a 1000 mile trip from the Canadian GP this weekend and I've realized I need to raise up my car. It's too low and the ride is too rough. I'd like to make a bit higher and smoothen out some bumps.

So I'd like to ask someone (at a factory height) to measure the distance from their center caps to the fender liner, front and rear.

Also is the competition package 10mm lower?

Thanks for all your help.

Joe

Return your car to factory suspension specs.

Also, buy an M3!

Sadly no but I definitely don't want to be at xi height. Comp package M3s are exactly the height im looking to achieve. I'm too low for NY roads. <--- take a picture, you're never going to hear someone else say that lol
