Brand new X5M leaning toward driver side on back

Hey guys I got X5M the other day and on next day noticed on the back wheels the car is leaning more on the left(driver side). is this issue related to the air suspension or something else could be? Any inputs will be appreciated!

REAR LEFT (Driver) SIDE

You should have BMW check it out. Appears to be a suspension issue. It's not uncommon to have issues with brand new BMWs.

Thatís a big lean. Prob a leak in the air suspension. Are you getting a check engine? Or the suspension link is either bent or not installed properly. The link is a small bar around 2 inches. This is what you replace when you lower your car but the aftermarket piece is adjustable

That's a leaky airbag or leak in the compressor line. That's a big reason why I bought a X6 M instead of X5 M.

Apparently dealer OP purchased from traded for the car, and that dealer must of had a rodent problem. I'd be furious too! What else did they munch on?!?!

Am I the only person who finds that diagnosis peculiar? Mice ate the vacuum hoses on a brand new X5 M? I replaced an blown air bag on my old E70 X5 M. The hoses were not exposed until they are run away from the frame above the control arms. They are covered by a plastic cover. There is very little exposure to the elements

yeah I will! Spoke to the service manager yesterday and chewed his ass about someone from his crew didnt do their job at all..they must do PDI on those cars no matter if its comes from factory or other dealership! Its brand new X5M, this is unacceptable!

He told me he is going to overnight the air line part and tomorrow car will be done. I will see. I am looking to be compensated since I signed paperwork last Saturday and cant drive my new 120K car now a week already. Thinking to bring this up to BMW USA. You guys have any emails of phones for them?
