I agree. Reach out to BMW Canada. Send them a nicely worded mail but make sure they know you aren't going to give up easily. Tell them what the dealership said too. Hopefully they'll have a solution soon!

Pfaff reported that they fixed the issue, and ride height is to spec. I measured, and it’s still not to spec, maybe a half-inch lower but not to spec. I saw another m340i with the same wheels as mine, measured, and it came to 14.5, mine was at 15.2. I told the SA I'll just let BMW Canada know, and then he said before I do that, come back after Thanksgiving and talk to the foreman. What, so they can feed me more BS?
I also indicated that I had moisture in the headlight and rattling in the exhaust flap, and all they could say is that they found no moisture, and the noise is the flap was normal, and all M3's make the same noise.
The Independent mechanic said the exhaust has to be replaced, and there is no other fix, and moisture in the headlight is a severe problem.

All these dealers are full of shit man. why they hell won't they just fix the issues. It's under warranty, I dont get it.

That really sucks. 15.2-15.5 is the spec for a 330i xDrive with the base suspension (perhaps they're looking at the wrong specs?).

I even gave them 5 copies of the newtis spec sheets before handing it over to them. I'm heading over to pick the car up today and talk to the foreman so he can feed me some more bs that ill just add to the shit list of things that went wrong and then file a lease lawsuit

Yes, that would be what the newTIS.info states and your measurements appear to be consistent with mine. FYI, the link I posted is for the M340i xDrive.

Consistant with yours? Do you work for BMW? Sounds like a load of bs they've all been feeding me. The numbers are so off, you may have thought im driving a base 330i, but my car is fact an m340i. Thanks for the spec sheets, that are no longer available to the public.
