Hey, lowered my G11 today using ISTA+ and my stock height measurements in sport were as follows:

26.5 inches Front (673mm)
26 inches Rear (660mm)

Hope that helps!

Also, I lowered my G11 by 30mm in the front and 25mm in the rear, thinking it might be too much since on my test drive I found that it was far less comfortable, does anyone know if its possible to lower the sport and comfort driving modes separately? I'd like to keep comfort and comfort plus at stock ride height but sport lowered if possible.

According to your preferences and needs
it's possible to lower only sport mode ? and keep comfort mode stock ?
and if yes, how to ?

Measure the current height 4 wheels follow ista requests exactly and bring it to ista without adding or subtracting, the suspension will be set to OEM

But somewhere hiding in the coding is a value to tell the car how to react when sport mode is engaged. My car lowers itself with approximately 10mm when sport mode is engaged. It would be so frickin' awesome to change that value to 20mm lowering instead. Or whatever value it needs to lower a little extra in sport since the function is already there.

Not lowering but I wonder about the whether M760li has firmer damper/air spring settings and whether you could code it to a normal 7 if if the hardware is shared?

M760i has different suspension that is slightly higher when you you compare it (shock absorber next to the other). I have mounted the 760Li suspension on my car (and coded ofcourse) and the difference is barely noticable to almost none compared to a normal suspension.)

Hey guys this forum has been such a help. Recently go a 740e and needed to minimise that wheel gap. Was never looking to slam the car, but definitely needed lowering. I went down the road of airmatic drop links as no one around me bar an hour drive dealt with coding. The links definitely were a pain in the ass to get a level ride, but for some reason the mechanic said the stock heights were all over the place to begin with.
Anyway hereís what the final product (having to return twice for readjustments) looks like. Iím very happy with it and can not tell a difference between the stock drive quality. ( worth noting when it was sitting lower than this by error, the car definitely felt worse to drive and quite kitty/unstable on the suspension).
This isnít a technical measurement but from the top of the rim/alloy to the wheels well is 4 inches all around in sport. 4.5 in comfort.

21" Wheels:

Initially dialed in 26.5" (673mm), but sat too low, so back up at 27.0" (686mm).

Also I believe with the Air Suspension in Spoet Mode at Speeds at 70+ MPH The car will Automatically Lower. But once you slow down anything under 70 it will automatically Raise back up.

G11/12 will lower to lowest (-10mm) at high speed regime, starting ~140kmh/87mph to unlimited, regardless of driving experience mode selected. It will raise back up to normal driving level when speed falls below ~140kmh/87mph

Toggling Sport mode will lower the car in any driving speed and there is no switchover at high speed regime as car is already at its lowest setting.
