Cool Lowered or not? That is the question....

I recently purchased my 94 325i Cabrio. It has 17" wheels w/ 225/45R17 tires. Im curious if its lowered or its just the size of the wheels fooling my eyes. Does anyone know what the ride height should be with 17" wheels on a factory suspension. (I might have the sports package if that matters)

MSR Style 138. 17x7.5, 42+ offset w/ 225/45R17 Tires. They came on the car. I bent one when I hit a pot hole doing 70 mph. I went to Les Schwab to buy a new one and they told me they didnt make them for a BMW 3 series. I laughed and told him to go take a look at my car. I got the rim fixed at another tire shop in town.
