I just picked up my brand new Black Edition today and noticed something funny when I got home - it sits slightly higher than my ZS at the rear end.
So I figured I'd measure the difference - measuring from the ground to the highest point of the rear wheel arch (in the center of it really), the ZS measures 62cm (24,41 inches) whereas the Black measures 63,5cm (25 inches)
Both cars are fitted with 195/45-16 tyres, and the tyres on the ZS only did a few thousand miles - they're hardly worn at all, so I figure that's not why.
The tyres of the Black did have a higher pressure, but even after reducing it to its proper pressure, it's still the same.
The only difference between the cars, is the ZS has a spare tire in its boot, but I figure it doesn't weight enough to lower it 15mm.
Now I know the ZS is lowered 15mm compared to the Titanium, but I'm under the impression the Black edition is as well, so I'm thinking my ZS may have worn its shock absorbers more than normal (the ZS is almost 2years old and has only done 11.000 miles)
My questions therefore are:
- Does anyone know if the ZS is in fact lowered more than the Black Edition ?
- Can anyone measure how high their ZS with 16 inch wheels sits ?
I'm having the ZS serviced in 2 weeks from now, and I'll ask them to look at is as well - but I'm thinking they'll probably just shrug it off and say it's nothing - that's why I'm asking here as well :-)
