    Ground Clearance

    I tried searching but didn't find anything. Can someone with an Alpina measure the ground clearance from the front and rear spots of the car (see red arrows in attached photo). I sold my car a few years ago and am considering something else as a replacement but I am concerned about ground clearance into the garage. I never had an issue with the Z8 but can't find the specs anywhere online either --- the ground clearance measurement is always blanks. Thanks everyone!

    I'm pretty sure the Alpina Z8 has the same ground clearance as a Z8...maybe someone with a Z8 can provide the measurements.

    Sorry for the orientation of pictures. I could not turn them from mobile. First picture is the lowest point of the front bumper (12cm). Second center and lower tip of the front bumper (13cm). Third picture thickness of the tire saver (2cm). Fourth picture is the lowest point of the rear bumper (19.5cm). This is actually same level with the bottom of the battery compartment. All measurements will be less 2cms.

    I measured the ground clearance on my Alpina and this is what I found:

    Front air dam - 5 1/4 inches (front red arrow in diagram)
    Rear fairing - 6 1/2 inches (rear red arrow/ forward portion of fairing just behind the rear tire)
    I'd post pics but can't remember how...
    Thanks,
