Ride height correct? (resubmit)

Please find attached a pic of my car.
I would appreciate to know your view about the ride height at the rear end. Is the height correct, or not for this model?
When I see other W124's, it appears that the rear ride height is higher. Especially with T-models, there is a bigger gap between the tyre and the wheel arch lining.

Any suggestions on how to increase/restore the height/gap?

The rocker panels look parallel to the ground and the car seems level. I think it looks fine. My w124 had a lot more space over the rear wheels when I first got it - installing new springs all the way around (Sportline) levelled the car. You can see what I mean in the pics on the Sportline option under the 'CARS' tab at the top of the page. I think a lot of 124s start to sag a bit in front with time.
