Right side lower? Anyone else?

Today I noticed for the first time that the Gap between the tire and fender is bigger on the driver side. In other words my car sits about 10 mm lower on the right. I confirmed this by driving to five different flat areas and I used a tape measure measuring from the top of the rim to the fender.
If it's supposed to be like this that's great never noticed before, but if it's not I want to bring it in.

Yes believe that is correct. My 2013 activehybrid 3 is higher on the left side too. I did measurements of the suspension of before and after lowering the car (see my post for pictures). I think there is also another thread about this before.

Unfortunately, it is normal. Had the same thing on my E90. I believe it is to compensate for the weight of the driver who is always in the car. After I went to H&R sports, it's not noticeable.
