It has stayed visually normal since Monday at noon.

I just measured, from the underside of fender to the center of the wheel BMW logo on the wheel it is 18.25" on the bad (driver) side & 18.46" on the good (passenger) side.

Still visually normal.

Is there anything else that would let the air out? I'd like to get into it once rather than r&r the bags & have to go back in to replace something else.

Any input to what other than the bag could cause one side to lose air once and then work normally for three days would be most appreciated.

check that the sensors are not loose or the brackets are not broken. other than that I had an intermittent leak on an airbag that was faulty.

Thanks, bags should be here tomorrow. They will go in regardless and I will check everything.

I have never heard of a sporadic leak in anything that holds anything under pressure.

Awesome man, looking forward to hearing updates. Glad it has stayed level but sometimes the side that is leaking will sag a big until the bag folds over enough to cover the leak. Maybe that's why it stayed the same.

Regardless, at 10 years old new bags can't hurt!

Bad bag out, new one in. It was damaged where it folds, guess that is why it stopped leaking.

It was easy thanks to the posts here, thanks!
