Slightly Lower at the Rear

Not sure if my car has always been like this - with all my recent service visits - but does anyone else's car sit a little lower at the rear? Thanks.

When car is parked ad engine is off or while the engine is running?

L versions have self leveling rear suspensions which lower the car when parked and engine is off. So the car will look lower before you start the engine...

Yes, parked and engine off, but I never noticed it before!? And, trust me, I spend many a moments just staring at the car - parked and engine off - at all of my cars actually , but thanks xDrive, the man with the answers! So, does it lower every time the car is put into park or every time it is shut down? Or, does it lower only after it has been shut down for a set amount of time, for entry, not exit? Hope the system never leaks, as I've had my fair share of EAS issues with another vehicle of mine, not to be named .

AFAIK, the car will only reach it's lowest point when the engine is turned off and parked for a while (not sure how long).
