I did try but didnt find any offical figure from bmw. I was looking at the 5 series clearance which is 5.55 inches (141 mm). The Z feels much lower as i barely manage to save the bottom from scraping from most bumps... but with the size of the bumps here, one scrape every now or then is part of the drive.

3 or 5 series does not have much problem on the same bumps.

But as they say even an inch can make a huge difference
