No, the ride height is fine! Especially if it's functional and you need it to make it over obstacles on poor roads.

Your car looks very clean! I second getting the doorhandles color matched.

Thanks Zhp! Agree to you on the doorhandles, I've been looking for them for a long time, but it's difficult to get them alone, don't want to buy the whole doors

You dont have to buy the handles. Just take them to a bodyshop and get them color coded.

Yeah, the body shop will use a plastic primer first, then under coat them and finally use titan silver paint and a clear coat to finish them. They will look exactly the same as the rest of the paint on your car provided they are done properly. We do stuuf like that all the time.

I noticed you're missing foglights for the bumper. In my opinion, it makes the front end look very incomplete.

I still have the foglights from my old 323i, if you'd like them. They're basically new. I bought them, and after a few months, I upgraded to a CSL bumper so I had no use for them. This is what they'll look like:
