10mm is a fair bit, not sure about the rear but the front of mine rides on bump stops, replaced missing ones recently and the car gained 10mm clearance.

Any number of things from worn strut tops, spring damper seats/pads and bump stops can add up to a 10mm drop if not 100%

Is it running stock springs and shocks? Magride or Gas?

Scuby22, I’ll measure mine, top of tyre to wing gap and I’ll let you know. Mine is standard height, never been modded.

Thank you Mr Fergus that is a great help, my local garage checked there wheel aliment for are cars and said there is two diffrent setups for the 2015 rs5 so wounded if there was a option to go lower mine seems to be sitting higher that yours. Fun and games
