Suspension low on one side

Hi

Had new rear tyres on Saturday and I pulled up work and noticed the osr side is about 15-20mm lower than the nsr. The car drives fine, not heard any loud bangs or anything. Don't think the tyre fitters would have done anything to cause this. Car passed MOT 2 weeks ago and no advisories.

Gonna check it out when I get home but any ideas?

Mine is the same and I've been advised by various people that's it's normal. It is certainly offputting though and I'm yet to understand the reason for it.

its common on e46's due to the fuel tank being on the drivers side & excess weight, when they designed them they were LHD & thus they used to counter adjust it with spring pads in the suspension, not ideal but it'll level it out.

As stated common as anything on E46's spec wise they can be 6-13mm and still be in tolerance sounds crazy I know and I had this issue re my old E46 it was only when I started looking at other peoples cars that I noticed the issue myself some years ago.
